I am so weak that I can hardly write, I cannot read my Bible, I cannot even pray, I can only lie still in God’s arms like a little child, and trust. Hudson Taylor

Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind. C.S. Lewis

It is hard to have patience with people who say “There is no death” or “Death doesn’t matter.” There is death. And whatever is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn’t matter.  C.S. Lewis

When the time comes for you to die, you need not be afraid, because death cannot separate you from God’s love. Charles Spurgeon

 Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see. Helen Keller 

It is a precious thing beyond all words – especially in the hour of death – that we have a God whose nature is such that what pleases Him is not our work for Him but our need for Him.  John Piper

Faith is different from proof; the latter is human, the former is a Gift from God. Blaise Pascal

I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done. Hudson Taylor

“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?”  Mother Teresa

So teach us to number our days, That we may get us a heart of wisdom. Ps 90:12 (NASB Bible)

“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” C.S. Lewis

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis
