A Bit of Wisdom by C.S.Lewis • Bible Truths

Tuesday. April 19th, 2022

Hello Beautiful Friends,

Today, I would like to share some of my favorite quotes from C.S.Lewis. I have long enjoyed his books, writings and his faith journey. I have included some biblical passages with the quotes. I hope you find them to be encouraging as you travel your faith journey. Have a terrific day! May the Lord bless you and keep you ~ Peace be with you!

“The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”

~C. S.Lewis

Boosting About Tomorrow

“Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”
—James 4:13-17 (NIV)

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.”

~C. S. Lewis

A psalm of David

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.” —Psalm 143:8 (NIV)

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

~C. S. Lewis

God’ Mercy and Israel’s Unfaithfulness

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!”
—Isaiah 43:18-19a (NIV)

Treasures In Heaven

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” —Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)

“You must ask for God’s help. Even when you have done so, it may seem to you for a long time that no help, or less help than you need, is being given. Never mind. After each failure, ask forgiveness, pick yourself up, and try again. Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself but just this power of always trying again.”

~C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

A psalm of David

“But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.” —Psalm 31:14-15a (NIV)

Thanks For Their Gifts

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” —Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

God’s Covenant With Noah

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”
—Genesis 9:16-17 (NIV)
