Some Bravehearted Quotes....

 Some of you may know this but I am a huge lover of epic, bravehearted quotes... so here's a few of my favorites... enjoy :)

"The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct."
Written in the 1940s by former U.S. Senate Chaplin, Peter Marshall

"Do you desire holiness? Run to God and stay there."  -Paul Washer

“Fix your eyes on the rising Morning Star.  Don’t be disappointed at anything or over-elated, either.  Live every day as if the Son of Man were at the door, and gear your thinking to the fleeting moment.  Just how can it be redeemed?  Walk as if the next step would carry you across the threshold of Heaven.  Pray.  That saint who advances on his knees never retreats.”
- Jim Elliot

“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.”
- C.T. Studd

"Here am I, send me, though you said the ones who labor are few, still my heart hears the call, and I want to give it all to you. Oh, to reach the ones nobody does, give up my pride and even work in the mud, I want to be like those who spilled their blood, and gave it like water to you."
- Keith Green

“The one concern of the Devil is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayer-less studies, prayer-less work, prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” - Samuel Chadwick

“The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of christian,But the fact that I am a christian does make me a different kind of woman.”

"In Him alone lie our security, our confidence, our trust. A spirit of restlessness and resistance can never wait, but one who believes he is loved with an everlasting love, and knows that underneath are the everlasting arms, will find strength and peace.”
― Elisabeth Elliot

“Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.”
― Elisabeth Elliot

“Stand true to your calling to be a man. Real women will always be relieved and grateful when men are willing to be men”   -Elisabeth Elliot

"Your life is in God's Hands. Your life hangs by a slender thread of sovereign grace tonight. You belong to God, He made you, you exist for Him. God made life, He know what life is for and He has a right to take it and a right to give it whenever He pleases."  -John Piper

"The way we display the supreme worth of Jesus is by treasuring Him above all things and then making choices which make the joy we have in His supreme worth manifest."  -John Piper

"Are you going to throw away your life? Are you going to buy into the American dream, minimize suffering , maximize comfort, maximize ease, maximize security, build bigger barns, work for the bread that perishes, lay up treasures on earth, covet the praise of man, and be happy for 80 years and perish? Is that the way you are going to waste your life? Or are you going to see Christ crucified and risen and reigning and bearing your sins, as the infinite treasure of your life that He really is, and then make life choices that display to the world His value?"  -John Piper
