Catherine Marshall

  • Often God shuts a door in our face, and then subsequently opens the door through which we need to go.

  • ... truth could never be wholly contained in words. All of us know it: At the same moment the mouth is speaking one thing, the heart is saying another ...

  • So once I shut down my privilege of disliking anyone I chose and holding myself aloof if I could manage it, greater understanding, growing compassion came to me ...

  • ... in rejecting secrecy I had also rejected the road to cynicism.

  • ... I learned that true forgiveness includes total acceptance.

  • ... those who've never rebelled against God or at some point in their lives shaken their fists in the face of heaven, have never encountered God at all.

  • ... where there was hunger there would also be bread.

  • ... I believe the old cliché, 'God helps those who help themselves,' is not only misleading but often dead wrong. My most spectacular answers to prayers have come when I was so helpless, so out of control as to be able to do nothing at all for myself.

Catherine Marshall, U.S. writer
