From Egypt into Canaan

"If you have faith in Christ you will not resent the fact that life is a pilgrimage, but will rather rejoice that it is so, because you will know that the pilgrimage is but a part of your exodus — an exodus from Egypt into Canaan, from bondage into freedom, and that an everlasting freedom. Your only regret will be that it takes such a long time, but even while you are here you will know a peace of mind and comfort that no one else can possibly feel."

~Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones

For we do not have an enduring city here: instead we seek the one to come.

~Hebrews 13:14

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

~Philippians 3:20

Laid Aside Letters

We lay aside letters never to read them again, and at last we destroy them out of discretion, and so disappears the most beautiful, the most immediate breath of life, irrecoverable for ourselves and others. 

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

From Lines During a General Election

Their threats are terrible enough, but we could bear
All that; it is their promises that bring despair.
