Quotes

It’s not enough to know about God, we need to know God.

It’s amazing when we spend time with God, what we’re willing to ask of Him. And it’s amazing when we do ask him, he answers.

When we experience God, it changes us and people see it.

We have to schedule mountain moments.

We get busy worshipping the creation, not the Creator.

Annie Downs, author of Looking For Lovely, is also a speaker and blogger based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Annie is a huge fan of bands with banjos, glitter, her community of friends, boiled peanuts, and football games.

Quotes

You can’t run from God and he’s kind enough that he doesn’t let you.

I always found a way out of the hard instead of through it. So, I didn’t have to deal with it, but I also didn’t get the benefits of it.

You survive it by finding the beautiful things in the hard.

I eat salad everyday. I’m not trying to get in a bikini, I just want my brain to work.

I’m going to tell you my answers, but you need to find your answers.

When you don’t feel your feelings they bottle up and they come out in different ways.

Stopping is not the same as quitting.

Here’s the message: find the things that are the knots in the rope that will help you get through and then purposely go after those.

Quotes

I remember clearly in my heart God saying, “I brought you here to be a bridge.”

We need to listen, not to respond, but really listen.

Meet people that don’t look like you and listen to them and share with them. That’s where it begins.

It’s hard to have those conversation when everyone looks like you and thinks like you.

Developing a heart for it starts in prayer. Nothing that we do is going to happen apart from prayer.

Our humanity shows us the value God has for diversity. We are all created in his image. What if we viewed each other in that way?

Racism is sin and we have to call it what it is.

It’s stealing God’s glory because it’s not showing how and who God is.

What if we all started looking at each other as image bearers.

We want to do our best while we’re here.

We have more alike than differences.

Scripture

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—  I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:22-23

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. Revelation 7:9
