"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Love these Rick Warren quotes from his book-Prophet of Purpose

”I used to think that life was hills and valleys-you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth. I don’t believe that anymore. Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it’s kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at times you have something good and something bad in your life. No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on .. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for….”
Quote by Rick Warren in book Prophet of purpose-the Life of Rick Warren by Jeffery L. Sheler 2009 pgs. 210


“He reminded his flock of the staggering worldwide toll: '40 million people infected with HIV/AIDS, 700,000 children infected at birth during the previous year, a child dying of AIDS every minute.” “Sometimes when people read statistics like that they get mad at God,” he said. “They say, ‘Why is God allowing this? Why doesn’t God do something about this? What is God’s plan for these people?’ I’ll tell you what God’s plan is. It’s sitting in your chair. You are God’s plan. God wants to use you to make a difference in the lives of these other people.”
Quote by Rick Warren in book Prophet of purpose-the Life of Rick Warren by Jeffery L. Sheler 2009 pgs. 218


In March 2005, Warren was the first evangelical preacher invited to address the Harvard Forum at the university’s Institute of Politics in the Kennedy School of Government. There, according to a journalist who covered the event, “He called for ‘more civilized dialogue’ in the nation’s political discourse and a ‘return to the old definition of the word ‘tolerance.’ That word used to mean a respect for those who had completely different opinions and worldviews. But today it doesn’t mean that. It means that all ideas have equal value. That’s nonsense, irrational and illogical. The Harvard students responded to Warren’s remarks with a standing ovation.”

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
