What I Love Most About Being a Christian:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. God saved us by His grace when we believed, and we can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God!
Jeremiah 29:11 - "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'", Psalm 91, Psalm 139, First John, Ephesians, Isaiah 61, and Psalm 103:1-5.
"Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do" - John Wooden. Also, Philippians 4:13 NLT, "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."
Princess Bride and Star Wars... our picks with good combos of action, humor, passion, romance, good prevailing over evil, and mostly happy endings.
