Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Revelation 19:7
The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD's hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. Isaiah 62:2,3,5c
Stephanie's Heart Cry
One of my many heart cries is to see the girls in my generation willing to take on the challenge of preparing themselves as a Bride of Christ. I desire to see our hearts longing to go and sacrifice everything for the sake of being salt and light in a lost world. I yearn to see young women that are set apart, pure...girls who and willing to stand alone at all costs. Girls, it's time we start preparing ourselves for the True Wedding Banquet. Let's start putting on our wedding attire and begin preparing ourselves for life's battles.

If there's anything in life we should be passionate about, it's the gospel. And I don't mean passionate only about sharing it with others; I mean passionate in thinking about the gospel, reflecting upon it, rejoicing in it, allowing it to color the way we look at the world and all of life. 'The gospel,' write Jerry Bridges, 'is not only the most important message in all of history; it is the only essential message in all of history.' ~CJ Mahaney
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. ~Corrie Ten Boom
Give me the love that leads the way, The faith that nothing can dismay, The hope no disappointments tire, The passion that will burn like fire, Let me not sink to be a clod: Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God. ~Amy Carmichael
Life is not waiting for the storms to pass, but learning to dance in the rain. ~Author Unknown
Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart. ~Corrie Ten Boom
I am not a theologian or a scholar, but I am very aware of the fact that pain is necessary to all of us. In my own life, I think I can honestly say that out of the deepest pain has come the strongest conviction of the presence of God and the love of God. ~Elisabeth Elliot
I am a missionary, heart and soul. God had an only Son, and He was a missionary and a physician. A poor, poor imitation of Him I am, or wish to be. In this service I hope to live; in it I wish to die. ~David Livingstone
Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God. ~William Carey
