Three Day Quote Challenge, Day 2

Here is my second quote:

32492042_10155248211176637_8903282177416888320_n

It seems there’s drama everywhere I look. Lots of emotional people expressing their opinions and disagreements. And it’s soooo easy to be drawn into it. However, as Christians, I believe we should be influencing others, not being influenced. After all, Christ lives in us and we should be allowing His peace as well as light to shine through us. If we get pulled into other people’s storms, our light is diminished just as storm clouds diminish the light from the sun. And our peace is destroyed just as the winds destroy the peace of calm sunny days.  We have the peace of Jesus in us  but only by staying out of the storms will be able to share it with those who come seeking refuge.

In the same vein, I also like the visual from the following quote. Repeating it usually helps me stay out of other people’s drama:

Not my circus. Not my monkeys.  (or zoo or jungle).

I’ve heard it from several places and I don’t know who to give credit to for it. If you know, kindly tell me so I can add it to this blog.

Thank you again Sue Love at Run With It for nominating me for this Three Day Quote Challenge.

Now I would like to nominate God’s Warrior at Taking Up My Cross for the 3 Day Quote Challenge because he has a wide range of interests and is completely bible based. I can’t wait to see which quotes he decides to share!

Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

For 3 days, provide a quote each day and why you like or chose that quote.

Nominate one or more bloggers each of the three days for the Challenge and then send them a comment letting them know they have been nominated.

(When you receive a nomination, if you’re too busy, you can do it later if need be.)

  1. I like that quote. It goes along with something the Lord gave me to write yesterday in a practical application of Psalm 46 to our world today. From the passage:

    “The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
    He raised His voice, the earth melted.
    The Lord of hosts is with us;
    The God of Jacob is our stronghold.” Ps. 46:6-7

    The Lord was showing me these “uproars” in our world today, but how we need to not be afraid of what is happening or is going to happen or what even might or might not happen. He was reminding me of his complete sovereignty over all that he has created, and that he is to be our stronghold, our refuge and our protection (our security) during these “uproars.”
