Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#2. Why would anyone entertain Satan's questions about God's goodness when everything is good? But a few bumps in the road, and our knowledge of God seems fragile, and that's what Satan is counting on. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#3. James intentionally enlarges the scope of suffering when he writes, "trials of many kinds." By doing this, he invites those who experience depression to learn that, whatever the cause, depression will test our faith and serve as a catalyst for growth rather than a reason for despair. Yes, depression is spiritual in the same way that all suffering brings us face-to-face with critical spiritual realities. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#4. Joy is not the opposite of suffering. If it were, a person practiced in joy could crowd out pain because one couldn't exist with the other. Instead, joy can actually be a companion to suffering. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch

#6. When you are confident that you are the Father's treasured possession, you are also confident that his loving care will continue forever. Building warehouses is a waste of time and space.

Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch

#8. I have a new philosophy. I only dread one day at a time. - Charlie Brown #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#9. Now listen more carefully to depression. Like all feelings, it is a kind of language. Guilt says, "I am wrong." Anger says, "You are wrong." Fear says, "I am in danger." Depression, too, has a message, but the message is usually not that simple. "Whereas some emotions are clear and unambiguous, depression's language is more heavily encrypted. It might take some decoding before it is understandable, but it is worth the effort. RECONSTRUCTING #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#10. Then, when shame strikes, it is so nasty you have to numb yourself, and what better anesthetic than your addiction? It is the perfect vicious circle. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#11. God says that he will give you grace to handle the disappointments that lie ahead; your task is to live for him in the present. At first, this feels reckless, as if you were enjoying the thrill of a speeding car when you are courting devastation at the next turn. But it isn't reckless to trust in God rather than yourself. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#12. Shame lives in the community, though the community can feel like a courtroom. It says, "You don't belong - you are unacceptable, unclean, and disgraced" because "You are wrong, you have sinned" (guilt), or "Wrong has been done to you" or "You are associated with those who are disgraced or outcast." The shamed person feels worthless, expects rejection, and needs cleansing, fellowship, love, and acceptance. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#13. All it takes is a tradition of demeaning, critical words from the right person. All it takes is nothing from the right person. No interest in you, no words spoken to you, no love. If you are treated as if you do not exist, you will feel shame. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#14. To establish a Scriptural counseling relationship, the speaker says we must know the person to the level that they feel like they are known and to the level that we are moved by the hardness of their experience. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#15. Fear in the biblical sense ... includes being afraid of someone, but it extends to holding someone in awe, being controlled or mastered by people, worshipping other people, putting your trust in people, or needing people. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#16. Ironically, our desire to clean ourselves actually minimizes the problem of uncleanness. It assumes we can give ourselves a good enough scrubbing to get a little holy before we meet the Holy One. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#17. Think about the nature of depression. Life is turned inward. You already have a sense that, for all practical purposes, God is not present. Add to that your relentless condemnation and pervasive self-criticism, which have persuaded you that God doesn't love you. You couldn't be a more obvious spiritual target if you painted a bull's-eye on your chest. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#18. Hope will only grow in the ground of humility. #Quote by Edward T. Welch

Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#21. We are more concerned about looking stupid (a fear of people) than we are about acting sinfully (a fear of God). #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#22. Shame is the deep sense that you are unacceptable because of something you did, something done to you, or something associated with you. You feel exposed and humiliated. Or, to strengthen the language, You are disgraced because you acted less than human, you were treated as if you were less than human, or you were associated with something less than human, and there are witnesses. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#23. If I can trust the word of a friend, why do I question the word of the God of the universe? Go figure. Sin is truly bizarre. [Running Scared, p. 111] #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#24. Once we get over the mild jolt to our pride - I would like my spouse to love me because she thinks I am the greatest male alive - we couldn't ask for anything better. The character of God is the basis for our connection to him, not our intrinsic worth. Self-worth, or anything we think would make us acceptable to God, would suit our pride but it has the disturbing side-effect of making the cross of Jesus Christ less valuable. If we have worth in ourselves, there is no reason to connect to the infinite worth of Jesus and receive what he has done for us. So if you feel unworthy of God's love, you can turn in one of two directions. You can turn inward, in which case you are looking for a little self-worth to bring to the Lord, and that is pride. Or you can turn to him and discover that he has a heart for the unworthy. He pursues those who, like Hagar, have no glory or honor in themselves. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#25. The fear of man is the sinful exaggeration of a normal experience. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#26. First we saw only our own shame. Now we see that Jesus' shame was deeper than our own, and we were among the scorners. First we saw only our own alienation and rejection. Now we see that Jesus' alienation and rejection was at the hands of the entire world, ourselves included. First we saw only contempt and self-contempt. Now we see that all human contempt was focused on Jesus - and we participated. No matter how stubbornly resistant to change your shame might be, witnessing extreme shame like this will move your shame to second place in your thoughts. This doesn't mean it disappears, but it makes a difference when your shame is number two on your list rather than number one. It makes a huge difference. When Jesus and his shame occupy our attention, our own shame becomes less controlling. Let us "fix our eyes on Jesus" (Hebrews 12:2 NIV). Fix your eyes on the one who absorbed shame and then announced that its reign was over. At least you will no longer feel alone. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#27. Through our struggles and pain, we are being offered perseverance, the character of God. Hardships are intended to give us a spiritual makeover, "that we may share in his holiness" (Heb. 12:10). Therefore, when God encourages us to persevere, he is not stumbling for encouraging words. He is teaching us how to look like him. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#28. Many depressed people have been hurt and rejected by others. They feel as though basic relational needs have not been met, and they will be stuck in depression until they are. Rejection from parents, spouses, or friends has left a profound emptiness that feels like an emotional handicap. What does this have to do with the heart? Consider first the example of Jesus. He is God, but he was truly human. If anything is clear from his life, he didn't get love from people, he never prayed that he would know the love of other people, and he didn't seem emotionally undone by rejection and misunderstanding. Rather, his deepest needs, as noted in his prayers, were for the glory of his Father to be revealed and for his spiritual children to be protected from the evil one and united in love (John 17).

#29. God's self-revelation is a higher authority than our feelings. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#30. What is most important to us? What do we love? What is most dear to us?2 We shouldn't be surprised that these questions get to the core of our being. They also point to where we are headed. All roads eventually lead to our relationship with God. Do we love what he loves? Is he most dear to us? #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#31. God tests us because we are so oblivious to the mixed allegiances in our hearts. The purpose of the test is to help us see our hearts and if they are found traitorous, we can turn back to God. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#32. Hiding. Covering up. Self-protection. Feeling exposed. They are telltale signs of shame. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Edward T. Welch
#33. The reason Scripture doesn't give clear guidelines for assigning responsibility is that it is not essential for us to know precise causes. This is good news: you don't have to know the exact cause of suffering in order to find hope and comfort. #Quote by Edward T. Welch
Tommy T Welch quotes by Florence Welch
#34. At the beginning of my career I was going through a really weird phase of dressing in boys clothes. I would only wear one American Apparel T-shirt and shorts and brogues the whole year round. Not the same T-shirt, obviously, but one style of American Apparel T-shirt. I think I was going through a tomboy stage. #Quote by Florence Welch
