Several of our children have married outside my faith. Would I prefer they marry within their religion? Yes, because I know that marrying outside the family faith will very likely bring them more problems-but not from me. My job is to accept them and love them, not to criticize them and make their lives more difficult.Bernie Siegel Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Bernie Siegel: Several of our children have married outside my faith. Would I prefer they marry within
It is an item of faith that we are children of God; there is plenty of experience in us against it. The faith that surmounts this evidence and that is able to warm itself at the fire of God's love, instead of having to steal love and self-acceptance from other sources, is actually the root of holiness. . . . We are not saved by the love we exercise, but by the love we trust.Timothy Keller Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Timothy Keller: It is an item of faith that we are children of God; there is plenty
It had been a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony, with the kind of lucid weather she hoped to have at her own funeral. She thought often of her own death, but without fear, loss having been her only belonging in this life. For years, acceptance had been her only means of survival. She knew that no matter how miserable or wretched life became, all she could do with her meek piece of time was sustain it. Decades of guilt, lost faith, the betrayal by those few people she'd let herself love - it was worth enduring these things, if only for the gift of a single, exalted moment. And such moments happened, even frequently, in the lives of people wise enough to see them.Esi Edugyan Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Esi Edugyan: It had been a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony, with the kind of lucid
Ah, what a beautiful illustration of the completely open mind - utterly undiscriminating, lacking any criteria for acceptance, blissfully and uncritically according every idea its full respect. But, of course, it's a lie: they don't regard every idea as equally deserving. They clearly consider the atheist idea that the sacraments of their faith are empty foolishness to be an outrage. Rather, what they love is the idea that everyone else must respect their beliefs, no matter what they are, and that any disagreement is an insult. This is exactly the kind of uncritical, unskeptical, nonjudgmental idiocy that all religions seek to promulgate, because they all know that if we tore off the blinders of tradition and artificiality and mindless etiquette, we'd see right through their lies. Respect every idea! Especially mine! And if you find stupid the idea that this cracker is a god, why, you must be disrespectful and no gentleman! MyP.Z. Myers Faith And Acceptance Sayings By P.Z. Myers: Ah, what a beautiful illustration of the completely open mind - utterly undiscriminating, lacking any
Chastisement leads to the acceptance of God's will. [ ... ]
Chastisement leads to the fellowship of God's Son. The will of God out of Christ is a law we cannot fulfil. The will of God in Christ is a life that fills us. [ ... ]
Chastisement leads to the enjoyment of God's love. [ ... ] Chastening is the school in which the blessed lesson is learnt that the will of God is all Love, and that Holiness is the fire of Love, consuming that it may purify, destroying the dross only that it may assimilate into its own perfect purity all that yields itself to the wondrous change. [ ... ]
And faith can only grow by exercise, can only thrive in trial: when visible things fail, its energy is roused to yield itself to be possessed by the Invisible, by the Divine.
Andrew Murray Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Andrew Murray: Chastisement leads to the acceptance of God's will. [ ... ]Chastisement leads to the fellowship
For our Titanic purposes of faith and revolution, what we need is not the cold acceptance of the world as a compromise, but some way in which we can heartily hate and heartily love it. We do not want joy and anger to neutralise each other and produce a surly contentment; we want a fiercer delight and a fiercer discontent. We have to feel the universe at once as an ogre's castle, to be stormed, and yet as our own cottage, to which we can return at evening.G.K. Chesterton Faith And Acceptance Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: For our Titanic purposes of faith and revolution, what we need is not the cold
The church doctrines of obedience to authority, repentance, fear of punishment, self-abnegation, acceptance of outer direction rather than inner assurance, elevation of faith over reason, and intolerance make institutionalized religion an ideal instrument of social constraint.Madalyn Murray O'Hair Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Madalyn Murray O'Hair: The church doctrines of obedience to authority, repentance, fear of punishment, self-abnegation, acceptance of outer
Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins is an essential covenant to make with the Lord. Faith and repentance precede this ordinance. Confirmation and the gift of the Holy Ghost follow baptism. Acceptance of these first principles and ordinances may obtain for us a remission of our sins and assure our salvation. In the ordinance of the sacrament, we regularly renew this and other covenants, and by complying with our part of the covenant, we receive the Spirit of the Lord to be with us.A. Theodore Tuttle Faith And Acceptance Sayings By A. Theodore Tuttle: Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins is an essential covenant to make with
Without a belief in my programme and without an acceptance of my condition, you will ruin me, ruin yourselves and ruin the cause.Mahatma Gandhi Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Mahatma Gandhi: Without a belief in my programme and without an acceptance of my condition, you will
As Pope Benedict writes in Caritas in Veritate: Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality.[2]James Schall Faith And Acceptance Sayings By James Schall: As Pope Benedict writes in Caritas in Veritate: Only in truth does charity shine forth,
If other ages felt less, they saw more, even though they saw with the blind, prophetical, unsentimental eye of acceptance, which is to say, of faith. In the absence of this faith now, we govern by tenderness. It is a tenderness which, long cut off from the person of Christ, is wrapped in theory. When tenderness is detached from the source of tenderness, its logical outcome is terror. It ends in forced-labor camps and in the fumes of the gas chamber.Flannery O'Connor Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Flannery O'Connor: If other ages felt less, they saw more, even though they saw with the blind,
True belief is not about blind submission. It is about open-eyed acceptance, and acceptance requires persistent distance from the truth, and that distance is doubt. Doubt, in other words, can feed faith, rather than destroy it. And it forces us, even while believing, to recognize our fundamental duty with respect to God's truth: humility. We do not know. Which is why we believe.Andrew Sullivan Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Andrew Sullivan: True belief is not about blind submission. It is about open-eyed acceptance, and acceptance requires
There was no attempt to speak of blastocytes; only the hard, hard reality of acceptance and faith.Anne Cleeland Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Anne Cleeland: There was no attempt to speak of blastocytes; only the hard, hard reality of acceptance
And the faith that grows out of questioning is stronger than the faith born of blind acceptance. It can withstand the shocks of circumstance. Only he who questions the universe and questions it in utter honesty can grow in his comprehension of the truth.James Dillet Freeman Faith And Acceptance Sayings By James Dillet Freeman: And the faith that grows out of questioning is stronger than the faith born of
When you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, how can you expect anyone to see you unlike you see yourself. Make you someone you like, and you will learn to love yourself. That is the first step in the quest for Love and acceptance.Daniel R. Gadberry Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Daniel R. Gadberry: When you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, how can you
There are two ways of attempting to deal with the appalling difficulties of choice on the higher ethical levels (Truth/beauty/goodness; family/country, war/peace, principles/persons.. ): (1) one can attempt to justify a one-sided choice, and this is what philosophies of value and religions attempt to do through reason and faith (feeling,) respectively. But this always founders or is never safe from foundering. (2) Or the dialectic can be squarely faced in the fact that no one-sided solution of it is ever justifiable by reason or by faith. And here enters the question not of acceptance or refusal, nor of affirmation or denial, but of letting-go. The letting-go, however, is limited, in life at least (and without taking death into account) by the boundary of ability to let go.Nanamoli Thera Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Nanamoli Thera: There are two ways of attempting to deal with the appalling difficulties of choice on
No theory is too false, no fable too absurd, no superstition too degrading for acceptance when it has become embedded in common belief. Men will submit themselves to torture and to death, mothers will immolate [burn] their children at the bidding of beliefs they thus accept.Henry George Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Henry George: No theory is too false, no fable too absurd, no superstition too degrading for acceptance
In order to grow
you have to let go
of all that you are
and all that you know.
Maureen Rose Muldoon Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Maureen Rose Muldoon: In order to grow you have to let go of all that you are and
Acceptance is a far better word and denotes a more positive attitude than resignation; I've always known that, but in recent days I've found one which is better still; it is consent.Faith Baldwin Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Faith Baldwin: Acceptance is a far better word and denotes a more positive attitude than resignation; I've
I have learned over a period of time to be almost unconsciously grateful
as a child is
for a sunny day, blue water, flowers in a vase, a tree turning red. I have learned to be glad at dawn and when the sky is dark. Only children and a few spiritually evolved people are born to feel gratitude as naturally as they breathe, without even thinking. Most of us come to it step by painful step, to discover that gratitude is a form of acceptance.
Faith Baldwin Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Faith Baldwin: I have learned over a period of time to be almost unconsciously gratefulas a child
When you realize that God is the only One who really has any lasting reward to give, He becomes the only One whose approval you desperately need. You can rest in the fact that you have it - in full measure - because the work of God's perfect Son, Jesus, secured your acceptance the moment you placed your faith in Him. Before you ever win or lose, God has turned His face toward you. He has chosen you. And He is pleased.Steven Furtick Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Steven Furtick: When you realize that God is the only One who really has any lasting reward
We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life - they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.Gene Wolfe Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Gene Wolfe: We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are
I have learned, however that self-acceptance is a journey, not a destination to be reached. It is organic, always changing and moving with us as we battle the trials that life hands us. When we lose sight of it, we have to have faith that the people who love us will bring us back, righting us on our journey again. - Marian GardMarian Gard Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Marian Gard: I have learned, however that self-acceptance is a journey, not a destination to be reached.
No one can be saved, and attain eternal joy, without all of the following: (1) a morally honest acceptance of the demands of virtue, (2) a serious effort to practice it, (3) an intellectually honest confession of failure, (4) repentance, and (5) at least an implicit faith and hope in God as Savior.Peter Kreeft Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Peter Kreeft: No one can be saved, and attain eternal joy, without all of the following: (1)
Practice acceptance on yourself so you can be kinder with your child. Practice nonjudgmental awareness of your life so you can save your loved ones from the cruelty of your own impossible standards and your hard-hearted disappointment. Practice greater faith and lesser blame. Take this blink of time when you are still stumbling at the gate, still awkward at the tasks, to turn down the sound and tumble freely in a state of grace. LifeKaren Maezen Miller Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Karen Maezen Miller: Practice acceptance on yourself so you can be kinder with your child. Practice nonjudgmental awareness
A scientist's life, the author says, is indeed conflictual, formed by battles, defeats, and victories: but the adversary is always and only the unknown, the problem to be solved, the mystery to be clarified. It is never a matter of civil war; even though of different opinions, or of different political leanings, scientists dispute each other, they compete, but they do not battle: they are bound together by a strong alliance, by the common faith "in the validity of Maxwell's or Boltzmann's equations," and by the common acceptance of Darwinism and the molecular structure of DNA.Primo Levi Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Primo Levi: A scientist's life, the author says, is indeed conflictual, formed by battles, defeats, and victories:
The idea persists that faith is a remnant of an ancient way of life, a way of knowing that asks for unthinking acceptance of a belief system or adherence to specific dogma. This may be the case for some spiritual traditions, but the Buddha insisted that his disciples investigate his teachings with the powers of reason, test them in the inner laboratory of meditation, and build their faith on a firm foundation of knowledge. As a result, faith in the Dharma implies faith in one's ability to recognize truth when it presents itself and to take responsibility for verifying it through analysis and meditative experience.Dharma Publishing Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Dharma Publishing: The idea persists that faith is a remnant of an ancient way of life, a
It is in the most undesirable of external circumstances that we discover internal qualities like courage, faith, compassion, inspiration, acceptance, and love.Christine Hassler Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Christine Hassler: It is in the most undesirable of external circumstances that we discover internal qualities like
The difficulty of faith doesn't come from the lack of feeling or even action but from the lack of divine knowledge - the knowledge of who God is and of the depth of His love. Your faith isn't so much about what you have done or not done, but what God has done and how much He has loved you. The most awful thing about faltering faith isn't the human relationships that can suffer, though they are tragedies, but it is the fact that you are missing out on the love and acceptance that God has waiting for you.Hayley DiMarco Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Hayley DiMarco: The difficulty of faith doesn't come from the lack of feeling or even action but
Belief is in a sense passive, an agreement or acceptance only; faith is active and positive, embracing such reliance and confidence as will lead to works. Faith in Christ comprises belief in Him, combined with trust in Him. One cannot have faith without belief; yet he may believe and still lack faith. Faith is vivified, vitalized, living belief.James E. Talmage Faith And Acceptance Sayings By James E. Talmage: Belief is in a sense passive, an agreement or acceptance only; faith is active and
The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God's sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope - at the very same time. This creates a radical new dynamic for personal growth. It means that the more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing God's grace appears to you. But on the other hand, the more aware you are of God's grace and acceptance in Christ, the more able you are to drop your denials and self-defenses and admit the true dimensions and character of your sin.Timothy Keller Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Timothy Keller: The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and
Philosophy has to be enquiring; it can take nothing on faith, and its methods are based not on the blind acceptance of authority, but on establishing truths by reason and argument.Julian Baggini Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Julian Baggini: Philosophy has to be enquiring; it can take nothing on faith, and its methods are
Amid the awful darkness, apparently forsaken of God, Christ had drained the last dregs in the cup of human woe. In those dreadful hours He had relied upon the evidence of His Father's acceptance heretofore given Him. He was acquainted with the character of His Father; He understood His justice, His mercy, and His great love. By faith He rested in Him whom it had ever been His joy to obey. And as in submission He committed Himself to God, the sense of the loss of His Father's favor was withdrawn. By faith, Christ was victor.Ellen G. White Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Ellen G. White: Amid the awful darkness, apparently forsaken of God, Christ had drained the last dregs in
Tolerance is NOT acceptance. And that's the problem with ALL religion. It teaches acceptance only for those who believe exactly as you do, and at best, tolerance for the rest of us "sinners." Sorry. Not acceptable.Quentin R. Bufogle Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Quentin R. Bufogle: Tolerance is NOT acceptance. And that's the problem with ALL religion. It teaches acceptance only
For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial "doubt." This doubt is by no means opposed to genuine faith, but it mercilessly examines and questions the spurious "faith" of everyday life, the human faith which is nothing but the passive acceptance of conventional opinion.Thomas Merton Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Thomas Merton: For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial "doubt." This
In this new year, may you have a deep understanding of your true value and worth, an absolute faith in your unlimited potential, peace of mind in the midst of uncertainty, the confidence to let go when you need to, acceptance to replace your resistance, gratitude to open your heart, the strength to meet your challenges, great love to replace your fear, forgiveness and compassion for those who offend you, clear sight to see your best and true path, hope to dispel obscurity, the conviction to make your dreams come true, meaningful and rewarding synchronicities, dear friends who truly know and love you, a childlike trust in the benevolence of the universe, the humility to remain teachable, the wisdom to fully embrace your life exactly as it is, the understanding that every soul has its own course to follow, the discernment to recognize your own unique inner voice of truth, and the courage to learn to be still.Janet Rebhan Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Janet Rebhan: In this new year, may you have a deep understanding of your true value and
I want to share my story, and I want to know yours. I believe with all my heart that sharing our stories, the real, ugly, broken ones, is one of the most powerful things in the world, because to share our story we must first accept it. We must own it. We must stop running from it or shoving it into the corner when company comes over. To share our story is to admit that we've been changed.Anna White Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Anna White: I want to share my story, and I want to know yours. I believe with
Many people are born into their religion. For them it is mostly a matter of legacy and convenience. Their belief is based on faith, not just in the teachings of the religion but also in the acceptance of that religion from their family and culture. For the person who converts, it is a matter of fierce conviction and defiance. Our belief is based on a combination of faith and logic because we need a powerful reason to abandon the traditions of our families and community to embrace beliefs foreign to both. Conversion is a risky business because it can result in losing family, friends and community support.Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Many people are born into their religion. For them it is mostly a matter of
The heart's transformation is not attained through the mind - it's attained through surrender, authenticity, forgiveness, faith, honesty, acceptance, vulnerability, humility, willingness, nonjudgment, and other characterological values that have to be learned and relearned continuously.Marianne Williamson Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Marianne Williamson: The heart's transformation is not attained through the mind - it's attained through surrender, authenticity,
Sophie, every faith in the world is based on fabrication. That is the definition of faith - acceptance of that which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove. Every religion describes God through metaphor, allegory, and exaggeration, from the early Egyptians through modern Sunday school. Metaphors are a way to help our minds process the unprocessible. The problems arise when we begin to believe literally in our own metaphors.Dan Brown Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Dan Brown: Sophie, every faith in the world is based on fabrication. That is the definition of
...trust in God could impose an additional burden on good people slammed to their knees by some senseless tragedy. An atheist might be no less staggered by such an event, but nonbelievers often experienced a kind of calm acceptance: shit happens, and this particular shit happened to them. It could be more difficult for a person of faith to get to his feet precisely because he had to reconcile God's love and care with the stupid, brutal fact that something irreversibly terrible had happened.Mary Doria Russell Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Mary Doria Russell: ...trust in God could impose an additional burden on good people slammed to their knees

America treasures the relationship we have with our many Muslim friends, and we respect the vibrant faith of Islam which inspires countless individuals to lead lives of honesty, integrity, and morality. This year, may Eid also be a time in which we recognize the values of progress, pluralism, and acceptance that bind us together as a Nation and a global community. By working together to advance mutual understanding, we point the way to a brighter future for all.George W. Bush Faith And Acceptance Sayings By George W. Bush: America treasures the relationship we have with our many Muslim friends, and we respect the
Eva's only fault has been the one of wanting to know more, to experiment and search with her own sources the laws of the Universe, of her own body and to refuse the teachings from "above". Eva, basically, represents the curiosity of science against the passive acceptance that belongs to faith.Margherita Hack Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Margherita Hack: Eva's only fault has been the one of wanting to know more, to experiment and
12I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, 13though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 14and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 16But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. 17To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. [4] Amen.Anonymous Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Anonymous: 12I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged
In recovery, we try to take the opposite of our character defects/shortcomings and turn them into principles. For example, we work to change fear into faith, hate into love, egoism into humility, anxiety and worry into serenity, complacency into action, denial into acceptance, jealousy into trust, fantasizing into reality, selfishness into service, resentment into forgiveness, judgmentalism into tolerance, despair into hope, self-hate into self-respect, and loneliness into fellowship. Through this work we learn to understand the principles of our program.Anonymous Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Anonymous: In recovery, we try to take the opposite of our character defects/shortcomings and turn them

The Creator of all men and all things has provided the challenge of change, the necessity for acceptance, and variations of all patterns. We live by change, by struggle and the unexpected; for only in change, struggle, and the unexpected can we achieve growth.Faith Baldwin Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Faith Baldwin: The Creator of all men and all things has provided the challenge of change, the
And she knew she was not sure, she would never be sure, because uncertainty is the essence of the human condition, and death is the one barrier beyond which we cannot see. There is no hope but faith, no knowledge but the acceptance of ignorance.
Yet still she hoped that one day she would know.
Jan Siegel Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Jan Siegel: And she knew she was not sure, she would never be sure, because uncertainty is
Atheists as well as theists unconsciously observe society's convention that we must be especially polite and respectful to faith. And I never tire of drawing attention to society's tacit acceptance of the labelling of small children with the religious opinions of their parents. Atheists need to raise their own consciousness of the anomaly: religious opinion is the one kind of parental opinion that - by almost universal consent - can be fastened upon children who are, in truth, too young to know what their opinion really is. There is no such thing as a Christian child: only a child of Christian parents. Seize every opportunity to ram it home.Richard Dawkins Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Richard Dawkins: Atheists as well as theists unconsciously observe society's convention that we must be especially polite
The demands of acceptance require us to maintain a relationship of honor and respect with those with whom we may ardently disagree. We accept the fact that our convictions on this matter differ, and those with whom we differ hold their convictions, as we do, unto the Lord. Inasmuch as this is not easy for us to do, we commit ourselves to bearing it as part of the disciple's cross. We don't agree to disagree by diminishing the importance of the question or by insisting that people care less about the issue.Ken Wilson Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Ken Wilson: The demands of acceptance require us to maintain a relationship of honor and respect with
Hence the aim of meditation, in the context of Christian faith, is not to arrive at an objective and apparently 'scientific' knowledge of God, but to come to know him through the realization that our very being is penetrated with his knowledge and love for us. Our knowledge of God is paradoxically a knowledge not of him as the object of our scrutiny, but of ourselves as utterly dependent on his saving and merciful knowledge of us. It is in proportion as we are known to him that we find our real being and identity in Christ. We know him and through ourselves in so far as his truth is the source of our being and his merciful love is the very heart of our life and existence. We have no other reason for being, except to be loved by him as our Creator and Redeemer, and to love him in return. There is no true knowledge of God that does not imply a profound grasp and an intimate personal acceptance of this profound relationship.Thomas Merton Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Thomas Merton: Hence the aim of meditation, in the context of Christian faith, is not to arrive
With the eventual acceptance of Darwin's theory we reach a modern understanding of nature, one which has since then changed in detail rather than in fundamentals. Only those who prefer religious faith to beliefs based on reasoning and evidence can still maintain that the human species is the special darling of the entire universe, or that other animals were created to provide us with food, or that we have divine authority over them, and divine permission to kill them.Peter Singer Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Peter Singer: With the eventual acceptance of Darwin's theory we reach a modern understanding of nature, one

Only he whose bright lyre
has sounded in shadows
may, looking onward, restore
his infinite praise.
Only he who has eaten
poppies with the dead
will not lose ever again
the gentlest chord.
Though the image upon the pool
often grows dim:
Know and be still.
Inside the Double World
all voices become
eternally mild.
Rainer Maria Rilke Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Rainer Maria Rilke: Only he whose bright lyrehas sounded in shadowsmay, looking onward, restorehis infinite praise. Only he
Food and eating often mask our pain, our inner longing for God, for acceptance. It is key to know our motivation for eating as well as for other actions. Why do I eat? Am I tired, am I bored, am I stressed and tired? A good practice is to live in the present moment, aware of the reality in which I am immersed.Mary DeTurris Poust Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Mary DeTurris Poust: Food and eating often mask our pain, our inner longing for God, for acceptance. It
It's important to have a vision of the long run and make wise decisions for our highest good in the present moment; however, we don't want to become attached to how everything must look. When we show up in good faith, life provides. And when we trust, we are always in the flow of manifestation.Alaric Hutchinson Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Alaric Hutchinson: It's important to have a vision of the long run and make wise decisions for
I learned to accept that everything happened in her time. When you live in the moment, it's easier to wait.

Your master will always bring everything to you at the perfect time.Kate McGahan Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Kate McGahan: I learned to accept that everything happened in her time. When you live in the

Imagine how our own families, let alone the world, would change if we vowed to keep faith with one another, strengthen one another, look for and accentuate the virtues in one another, and speak graciously concerning one another. Imagine the cumulative effect if we treated each other with respect and acceptance, if we willingly provided support. Such interactions practiced on a small scale would surely have a rippling effect throughout our homes and communities and, eventually, society at large.Gordon B. Hinckley Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Gordon B. Hinckley: Imagine how our own families, let alone the world, would change if we vowed to
We need in the "Ummah" to move away from the normative attitudes towards the acceptance of pluralism of the "Ummah", and that pluralism starts from the time of the Prophet himself and "Hadith" (Sayings of the Prophet Mohammad) as well as the Prophet's historical footprints show that in the life time of the Prophet himself he knew that there would be pluralism in the interpretation of the faith"

Aga Khan Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Aga Khan: We need in the "Ummah" to move away from the normative attitudes towards the acceptance
Having faith requires leaps of faith, cerebral acceptance of miracles - immaculate conceptions and divine interventions. And then there are the codes of conduct. The Bible, the Koran, Buddhist scripture ... they all carry similar requirements - and similar penalties. They claim that if I don't live by a specific code I will go to hell. I can't imagine a God who would rule that way.Dan Brown Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Dan Brown: Having faith requires leaps of faith, cerebral acceptance of miracles - immaculate conceptions and divine
Sometimes the bridges you burn light the way out of your darkness, but the memory of the blaze will be burned into your heart and mind forever.Shannon L. Alder Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Shannon L. Alder: Sometimes the bridges you burn light the way out of your darkness, but the memory
One thing is certain: the humility of faith, if it is followed by the proper consequences-by the acceptance of the work and sacrifice demanded by our providential task-will do far more to launch us into the full current of historical reality than the pompous rationalizations of politicians who think they are somehow the directors and manipulators of history.Thomas Merton Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Thomas Merton: One thing is certain: the humility of faith, if it is followed by the proper
Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality. Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way.Pope Benedict XVI Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived.

My fear of being real, of being seen, paralyzes me into silence. I crave the touch and the connection, but I'm not always brave enough to open my hand and reach out. This is the great challenge: to be seen, accepted, and loved, I must first reveal, offer, and surrender.Anna White Faith And Acceptance Sayings By Anna White: My fear of being real, of being seen, paralyzes me into silence.

Only the gospel can truly save you. The gospel doesn't make good people good; it makes dead people alive. That's the difference between the gospel of Jesus Christ and every other world religion.
