The Rooms of a Woman's Heart

I am slowly working my way through Carol McLeod's The Rooms of a Woman's Heart and found a few passages I want to share. (This is the third time I've posted this - with something added each time.)
"Your impatience does not change the timing of God in your life, and when you being to compare yourself with those around you, God does not relent. God quietly and tenderly reminds you that He is God and His promises remain true." p. 52

"Actually, maybe we are the ones with a twisted sense of favor, because what we think is horrible just may turn out to be wonderful! When God visits us and informs us of His plan, what we do not understand may bring unspeakable joy! What messes up our well-laid plans and possibly a delightful time in our lives just may be His divine handiwork!" p. 70

"If I throw out a boat hook from the boat and catch hold of the shore and pull, do I pull the shore to me, or do I pull myself to the shore? Prayer is not pulling God to my will, but the aligning of my will to the will of God." p. 185-186 quoting E. Stanley Jones
