A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

George Mueller

I love the biography of George Mueller...and his quotes .....so from time to time I will share those that speak so loudly to me:

"There was a day when I died;

died to self, my opinions, preferences, tastes and will;

died to the world, its approval or censure;

died to the approval or blame even of my brethren or friends;

and since then I have studied onlyto show myself approved unto God."

(George Mueller)

Oh that I could say that myself.....just to care what it is the LORD wants for me. Nothing more nothing else.....to be rid of self....especially in the things that *I* sometimes think...DON"T MATTER......the so called little things....

I meant to tell you ...you can just google for free clip art and photos of certain things. Like free clip art of stressed out woman, etc.

This is a great quote! I've been thinking the past couple of days about the "approval or blame even of my brethren or friends". How we need to die to everything except God's approval!

Thanks so much, Deby. This is a BEAUTIFUL quote. I'm glad you're going to be sharing more quotes of this wonderful man. I'll be looking forward to reading more of them.
It certainly is my prayer, to die to self more. The sin that remains within makes it harder than it should be.
