When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sabbath Day Scribblings - Give Me All

This has been all over the internet this week, and it is a message that I have always loved.  Remember that Heavenly Father knows, exactly, who He needs you to be.  It is not always easy, but it is always, always worth it.  

"The Christian way is different: harder, and easier. Christ says “Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch here and a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down. I don’t want to drill the tooth, or crown it, or stop it, but to have it out. Hand over the whole natural self, all the desires which you think innocent as well as the ones you think wicked—the whole outfit. I will give you a new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself: my own will shall become yours.”  C.S. Lewis


  1. Oh, how I can't wait to get rid of all my bad habits and be able to always choose the better path.

  2. Ahhhh....but that is the point I think. He knows that we can't get rid of those bad habits by ourselves. Mostly, we need to be willing to turn them over to Him and trust that he can take care of them for us.

  3. I love c.s. lewis, great quote.

  4. Love this photo with the quote. And I love C.S. Lewis quotes.
    I just wanted to drop by to let you know I do still love and appreciate you and your blog. I am lucky if I get 20 minutes a week to blog/read blogs so I miss a lot.
