All we can see is a fragment. Who can say what will come next?

In the Eye of the Storm (1991)Edit

  • Once there was an old man who lived in a tiny village. Although poor, he was envied by all, for he owned a beautiful white horse. Even the king coveted his treasure. A horse like this had never been seen before — such was its splendor, its majesty, its strength.
  • All I know is that the stable is empty, and the horse is gone. The rest I don’t know. Whether it be a curse or a blessing, I can’t say. All we can see is a fragment. Who can say what will come next?
    • "The Old Man and the White Horse"
  • It is impossible to talk with you. You always draw conclusions. No one knows. Say only this. Your sons had to go to war, and mine did not. No one knows if it is a blessing or a curse. No one is wise enough to know. Only God knows.
    • "The Old Man and the White Horse"

Cure for the Common Life : Living In Your Sweet Spot (2005)Edit

  • You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can be everything God wants you to be.
    • p. 18

Travelling Light: Releasing the Burdens You Were Never Intended to Bear (2001)Edit

  • You have a God who hears you, the power of love behind you, the Holy Spirit within you, and all of heaven ahead of you. If you have the Shepherd, you have grace for every sin, direction for every turn, a candle for every corner, and an anchor for every storm. You have everything you need.

And who can take it from you? Can leukemia infect your salvation? Can bankruptcy impoverish your prayers? A tornado might take your earthly house, but will it touch your heavenly home?

    • p. 32
  • Would you treat this world like home? It isn’t. The greatest calamity is not to feel far from home when you are, but to feel right at home when you are not. Don’t squelch, but rather, stir this longing for heaven.
    • p. 154
