Courage encourages courage. Mark Buchanan

Unless and until we rest in God, we will never risk for God. Mark Buchanan

Here lies the basic flaw of all doubt. It can never really be satisfied. No evidence is ever fully, finally enough. Doubt wants always to consume, never to consummate. It clamors endlessly for an answer and so drowns out any answer that might be given it. Mark Buchanan

Sometimes doubting is not a lack of faith, but an expression of it. Sometimes to doubt is to merely insist that God be taken seriously not frivolously, to insist that our faith is placed in and upheld by something other than seeming conjuring tricks. Mark Buchanan

Mindset of the man too busy: I am too busy BEING God to become LIKE God. Mark Buchanan

And then God gave me insight: this was winter. It would end, in time, but not by my own doing. My responsibility was simply to know the season, and match my actions and inactions to it. It was to learn the slow hard discipline of waiting.

It was my time to walk without sight. Mark Buchanan

The examen is a form of personal inventory. At day's end, spend time in prayerful reflection on your day: your comings and goings, routines and disruptions, work and play, discoveries and disappointments. Think about who you met, or missed. Think about your moments of aloneness. In all, ask two questions: when was I most alive, most present, most filled and fulfilled today? And when was I most taxed, stressed, distracted, depleted today? A simpler, and more spiritually focused, version of those questions: when did I feel closest to God, and when farthest? Mark Buchanan

Physical sickness we usually defy. Soul sickness we often resign ourselves to. Mark Buchanan

Once we begin to flee the things that threaten and burden us, there is no end to fleeing. God's solution is surprising. He offers rest. But it's a unique form of rest. It's to rest in him in the midst of our threats and our burdens. It's discovering, as David did in seasons of distress, that God is our rock and refuge right in the thick of our situation. Mark Buchanan

All the wickedness in the world begins with an act of forgetting. Mark Buchanan

Busyness makes us stop caring about the things we care about. Mark Buchanan

Sabbath's golden rule: Cease from what is necessary. Embrace that which gives life. Mark Buchanan

Many of us are confessional giants but ethical midgets. Mark Buchanan

God gave us laughter, I think, as a balm to wash the wounds of our own blunders, as a splint to mend the bones we break in our rashness or vanity. Mark Buchanan
