Moving Thoughts Friday…on Wednesday?

Every Friday (or Wed. in this case) I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.

It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.

Since I’m heading to the ACFW conference, and will be mostly offline until early next week, you get your Moving Thoughts Friday question early.

Favorite quote?

**I'm loving the dialogue so far on my new
Facebook writer page. Please come join the conversation!


  1. Fav quote... I have a lot. This one is kind of long, but very powerful. Here it is:
    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are ment to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permisson to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.''

  2. Hmmmm.....

    Probably any quote from Michael Scott on The Office. He is very profound.

    Take this one, for example:
    "Yeah, I went hunting once. Shot a deer in the leg. Had to kill it with a shovel. Took about an hour. Why do you ask?"

    Can't wait to see you, woman!

  3. Okay....Tabitha - GREAT quote! I haven't read that one in a really long time. I used to have it on my blog when I did quotes/verses on the side panel. Such inspiring and true words!

  4. Oh dear. No fave quote here. I love reading them but rarely remember them. *blushing with embarrassment*

  5. I think one of my favorite quotes is by Colonel Henry Knox who said, "We want great men who, when fortune frowns, will not be discouraged."

    Have a blast at ACFW! Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back.

  6. One of my favorites is from Stormie Omartian. I don't remember the exact wording, but it's something like, "God doesn't want us to know the future. He wants us to know HIM...and trust Him for the future."

    See you soon, girlie! :)

  7. Have a great time! Can't wait to hear all about it.

    Mine: "I have held many things in my hands and lost them all. But that which I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess." Martin Luther

  8. Two favorites:

    Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else. ~ Judy Garland

    I believe Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. ~ C.S. Lewis

  9. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fulness to dwell in Jesus.

    Colossians 1:19

    I am blown away every time I read this or think about it--God in a man, to show us God fully. Wow. I can't--I won't--get over it.

  10. Wendy:
    "The Lord will perfect that which concerns me." Psalm 138:8a
    I found this in the late 1970s and that issue that I feared then has yet to happen.
    I include this scripture in encouragement cards I send.
