Friday Quotes…

I absolutely love quotes.  I carry a journal devoted completely to quotes whereever I go.  You never know when you’ll run across something completely amazing!  Below is my all time favorite quote.  It basically says what I want to say, even though I had no idea I wanted to say it…

“Anyone can look holy if she’s killed her heart; the real test is to have ones heart burning within her and have the patience to enjoy what there is now to enjoy, while waiting with eager anticipation for the feast to come.”–The Sacred Romance. 

Read it again… slowly…

Is your heart buring within you, or have you killed it, not knowing what else to do?  What do you think is the “feast to come”?

  • Well, since I know this is your favorite quote – it’s one that I’ve begun praying over you daily! Your feast is coming!!

    Thanks for continually encouraging me to be passionate. It’s contagious!

    I love it! Truthful as well.

  • I’m a guy, so this might sound weird. I really like that quote and I think it definitely rings true for more than just women-folk.

    In my mind, the feast to come is an eternity of satisfaction and life devoid of want, but not necessarily devoid of desire.

  • Hmmm! You know I am a quote man! :-)

  • Abbi Zeliff says:

    I think that my heart is learning to live again. I feel that I’ve been squelching it for some time now, trying to be what the world wanted me to be rather than who God desires me to be. I really struggle to live in the moment, but that’s something I am getting better at doing. God’s really been working on me in the last few months.

    For me, the “feast to come” means the fulfillment of a dream–whatever it is one looks forward to…for some, marriage; for some, babies; for some, starting their own company; for some, writing a book, starting a movement, changing the world. I think the “feast” is individually designed by God for each person and it’s up to us to enjoy every moment LEADING UP TO IT, not just the moment when it finally “happens”.

    I think the real trick is “passionate patience”. Hmm. Now THERE’S a concept.

  • ooohh, I like that. THere is always an inticipation of the feast i me. I tend to look so forward to it that I forget to enjoy the now. :)
