Quotes on Soul Friendship with God


Incredible as it may seem, God wants our companionship.He wants to have us close to Him.

Billy Graham


We live in a noisy, crowded, busy world. In the realm of man's spirit the devastation wrought by our much vaunted modern way of life is beyond measure. People are so driven. A thousand false voices call to them to find fulfillment in the transient, tempting pursuits of time.


But, man was made for a greater good than all of these.He was made for God. And he will never find rest of soul, serenity of spirit, until he finds that repose in stillness and quietness in company with Christ.

Phillip Keller


We cannot give ourselves to spiritual things and deepen our relationship with God if we are obsessed with a multitude of things to do and always on the go. Love for God is a tender plant that can mature only when it has time to grow. God cannot be loved on the run!

David Roper


God will never adjust His agenda to fit ours.He will not speed His pace to catch up with ours; we need to slow our pace in order to recover our walk with Him.God will not scream and shout over the noisy clamor; He expects us to seek quietness, where His still, small voice can be heard.

Charles Swindoll



Quotes on Soul Friendship with Another


It is not enough to keep watch over our souls privately.We need others.We need others to ask the hard questions. Someone we can confess our sins to and hear God’s declaration of forgiveness in Christ.Who will be that someone that can help you “keep watch over your soul?”

Greg Ogden and Daniel Meyer (Leadership Essentials)


Just as we individually are a dwelling place for God’s Spirit (1st Corinthians 3:16), when we meet with another to grow and deepen our relationship with Him, we experience God’s habitation! (Matthew 18:20) When you meet in God’s name – a temple of prayer is erected.

Susan S. Phillips


One of the most attractive aspects of Celtic Christianity is its stress on the importance of finding a soul friend – a notion that combines kindred spirit, mentor, spiritual director, confessor and boon companion.The Celts called such a person an anachmara- a friend of the soul – and thought no one was complete – or safe! – without one.

Daniel Taylor (In Search of Sacred Places)


Quotes on Busyness


If I wait until I think I have time – I will never slip off to the quiet places to meet with God.

Macrina Wiederkehr


God does not fit in an occupied heart.

St. John of the Cross


Life is not an emergency. Life is a gift. Just slow! Sometimes the slowest way is the fastest way to Joy!

Ann Voskamp (1000 Gifts)

  • Julie


    I’m turning 62 this year. I can hardly believe it myself. But, I’ve decided that I no longer want to live comfortably. I want to live with a spirit of adventure like I had in the past. To be unafraid of what’s new or different. I want to remain so open to the Spirit of the living God that his love compels me to go wherever he leads me.
  • LuAnn


    I am passionate about people leaning into all that Jesus is. You. Me. Us. Journeying together with God. This is my greatest blessing. And now that my kiddos are out on their own, I’m learning to navigate my new normal. And I am finding there is life after little ones and teens after all!
  • Emilie


    I am currently finishing my degree in relational communications and plan to graduate in the spring of 2020!! I am thankful I have had time to grow, heal, appreciate a slower pace of living, and to invest more time into relationships with family, friends, and God. Through this process I am learning what I want to prioritize in my life and figuring out ways to make that happen. Most of all, I am figuring out that life is all about process, taking steps closer to where I want to be and celebrating the little victories but also accepting that there will be setbacks and disappointments along the way.
