    "At the timberline where the storms strike with the most fury,

    the sturdiest trees are found."
    - Hudson Taylor

    From Lou: I spent some time at my friends farm and learned some valuable lessons. The corn stalks on the outside rows of the field have little ears of corn and so not much corn. BUT this allows them to grow larger and stronger stalks stronger stalks. These stronger stalks protect the rest of the field from storms. My friend started his harvest but cutting down these outside stalks first one year. A storm interrupted his harvest and he had to stop. The next day he went out to finish harvesting that field. But the whole field had been flattened by the storm. Without the protection of the stronger outside rows the rest of the field was destroyed by the storm. Maybe you are a Christian who is strong against the storms that come constantly against you and so you seem to have little fruit. Maybe you are like the rows of corn on the outside rows that protect the rest of the flock.

    "Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can

    never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change

    things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems,

    we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems,

    we can have victory."

    - Warren Wiersbe

    "God knows our situation; He will not judge us as if we had no

    difficulties to overcome. What matters is the sincerity and

    perseverance of our will to overcome them."

    - C.S. Lewis

    "The way to Heaven is ascending; we must be content to travel

    uphill, though it be hard and tiresome, and contrary to the natural

    bias of our flesh."

    - Jonathan Edwards

    "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide

    will turn."
    - Harriet Beecher Stowe

    "Do not be lazy. Run each day's race with all your might, so that

    at the end you will receive the victory wreath from God. Keep on

    running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won

    by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps

    the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that

    Jesus is Victor."
    - Basilea Schlink

    "Storms make the oak grow deeper roots."

    "We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our

    place, and bear our cross, and thereby rob us of our crown."

    - William Booth
