Ang’s March Reads and QOTMs

Treasuring ChristIt’s hard being a mom. I know in my heart that the gospel changes everything – even how I view my role as a mother. But I so easily forget that Christ’s love for me, His work on the cross, His living Word – these gifts offer me the opportunity to respond to frustrating situations and mundane circumstances with His perspectives. What a breath of fresh air this book was for my worn-out self. I’m sure I’ll be revisiting this wonderful little read in the years to come. (Thanks to my sweet sister-in-law for gifting it to me a couple of years ago!)

Check out a few of my favorite quotes from my March reading.


A greater gift than time is the gift of forgiveness of our sins through Christ Jesus so that we can behold our holy God. ¹

No mother’s nighmarish valley is so dark that Jesus cannot bear her burdens the whole way through. ¹

More relevant than our mothering choices or strategies is whether we are walking in a manner worthy of him, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God (Col. 1:9-10) ¹

Oh, let none think his labor of love is lost because the fruit does not immediately appear! Nearly forty years did my father labor here… I took some pains among this people too, and my strength also seemed spent in vain… but the seed, sown so long since, now sprang up, bringing forth repentance and remission of sins. ²

… I mention these little circumstances to show how easy it is to redeem every fragment of time (if I may so speak), when we feel any love to those souls for which Christ died. ²

Two kinds of people, but all lived and died by the same sword. ³

We were outcasts without a kingdom to save us, and the gods were too far above in the heavens to hear our cries. ³

“Maviah…” I turned back. “Yes?” “You will find that Yeshua loves you.” ³

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? – Isaiah 55:2


Gloria Furman, Treasuring Christ when Your Hands Are Full ¹
John Wesley, John Wesley’s Journal ²
Ted Dekker, A.D. 30 ³
