- E. Stanley Jones

human life is no longer a code,
but a character.
- E. Stanley Jones

Being born in a Christian home does not make you a Christian.
- E. Stanley Jones

Prayer means that the total you is praying.
Your whole being reaches out to God,
and God reaches down to you.
- E. Stanley Jones

The conscious mind determines the actions,
the unconscious mind determines the reactions;
and the reactions are just as important as the actions.
- E. Stanley Jones

God, to redeem us at the deepest portion of our nature -
the urge to love and be loved -
must reveal His nature in an incredible and impossible way.
He must reveal it at a cross.
- E. Stanley Jones

Prayer is commission.
Out of the quietness with God, power is generated that
turns the spiritual machinery of the world.
When you pray, you begin to feel the sense of being sent,
that the divine compulsion is upon you.
- E. Stanley Jones

In conversion you are not attached primarily to an order,
nor to an institution, nor a movement,
nor a set of beliefs, nor a code of action -
you are attached primarily to a Person,
and secondarily to these other things.
- E. Stanley Jones

The action carries a sense of incompleteness and frustration,
but not of guilt.
Victorious living does not mean perfect living in the
sense of living without flaw,
but it does mean adequate living, and that can be consistent with many mistakes.
- E. Stanley Jones

If the Holy Spirit can take over the subconscious with
our consent and cooperation,

go anywhere we ought to go, and be anything we ought to be.

first,
upon the richness of the self that was given;
and second,
upon the depths of the giving.
Friend and foe alike are agreed on the question of
the character of Jesus Christ.
- E. Stanley Jones

To pass from estrangement from God to be a son of God
is the basic fact of conversion.
That altered relationship with God gives you an altered
relationship with yourself,
with your brother man, with nature, with the universe.
- E. Stanley Jones

Our intentions may be very good, but,
because the intelligence is limited,
the action may turn out to be a mistake -
a mistake,
but not necessarily a sin, for sin comes out of a wrong intention.
- E. Stanley Jones

Continuing a Lenten series on prayer:
Prayer is co-operation with God.
It is the purest exercise of the faculties God has given us -
an exercise that links these faculties with the Maker
to work out the intentions He had in mind in their creation.
- E. Stanley Jones

You cease to move into yourself, away from others.
You give up your antagonism.
You begin to move toward others in love.
God moved toward you in gracious, outgoing love,
and you move toward others in that same outgoing love.

Character is supreme in life, hence Jesus stood supreme in the supreme thing -
so supreme that,
when we think of the ideal, we do not add virtue to virtue,
but think of Jesus Christ, so that the standard of
human life is no longer a code but a character.
- E. Stanley Jones

never from demanding that others live simply -

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.

Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

but in rising every time we fall.

our friends, our community, for the whole world.

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -
as a butterfly would.
By honoring and enjoying
the freedom of our loved ones,
we gain our own freedom.
Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

our only job is to move our doubting minds aside
and let the miracles flow.

Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
