I felt the need this morning to let you know that although I do drink a lot of coffee, I also drink a lot of water. For every cup of coffee I drink, I drink at least twice as much water. Below is a picture of my 32 ounce water bottle, which I fill multiple times a day. It's nice to have a water fountain right outside my office ... with nice, cold water I might add.

With that said (written?), it would be wrong of me not to include something coffee-related.

Here's a great one which I can certainly relate to.

My brother e-mailed me some awesome quotes yesterday by Leonard Ravenhill (author of "Why Revival Tarries" - definitely read it!). I want to share these quotes with you.

Very thought-provoking!!!

Quotes from Leonard Ravenhill

If God could turn some of us inside out,
He might send us to turn the world upside down.

A man is not to be judged by the height of his ambitions, but by the depth of his compassions.

I am sure that the main reason we do not have a national revival beginning with personal revival is that we are content to live without it.

Watch and pray, or rust and decay.

Most Christians pray to be blessed; few pray to be broken.

The prophet in his day is fully accepted of God and totally rejected by men.

The Church has many organizers, but few agonizers;many players and payers, but few pray-ers; many singers, but few clingers; lots of pastors, but few wrestlers; many fears, but few tears;much fashion, but little passion; many interferers, but few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters.

Better to die doing something for God than live to do nothing for Him.

It is not always easy to do God's will, but it is always possible.

Criticism is one thing at least which we feel it is more blessed to give than to receive.

If we have not too many men studying church history, we have too few making it.

When did you or I last tip-toe out of the sanctuary saying, "Surely God is in this place"?

The Christian life is not a party but a pilgrimage.

Better to have a hard will and a soft heart, than to have a soft will and a hard heart.

To obey is better than sacrifice, but not an escape from it.

Truth fears no exposure.

We can give God much: our problems, our griefs, our praises--but we cannot give Him advice.

If a million people smiled on me while I knew God frowned on me, I would not be happy.

Happiness is the goal of the sinner. Holiness is the goal of the believer.

It is much easier to wear a cross than to bear a cross.

The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world and make him holy, then put him back into that unholy world and keep him holy in it.

If "Christ liveth in me" then I shall be very careful where I take Him.

God cannot be explained -He can be experienced.

The Holy Spirit cannot be intimidated.

Men give advice, God gives guidance.

The only people who want to change the Gospel are those who are unchanged by it.

Five minutes of Divine revelation might be more illuminating than five years of Bible school instruction.


Are the things we are living for worth Christ's dying for?

I have some stuff to take care of, so I must run. I have more to share but time does not permit me to do so. Have a great Memorial Day weekend! (And be sure to remember why it's Memorial Day!)

God bless you!
