Sharing some Personal Spiritual Thoughts (and Prayers)
These are some of the notes (in point form) from thoughts and quotations that I’ve written down and collected over the years*, which may be of interest and get you “thinking” about these “airey-fairey matters”. Hope that these “rather personal” thoughts may be helpful, uplifting and perhaps even inspirational to you too.
Sharing a Few Personal Thoughts* That I’ve Jotted Down Over the Years in my ‘Little Books, my Prayer Diary (and Diaries)’

“Hope is the anchor of the soul”
Look upward and you go within
“I am an ordinary writer inspired by an extra-ordinarily great Spirit.”
- Lindsay M (‘The Prophet’)
I don’t believe in setting goals, but in going after our dreams.
PEACE: Let me be a channel for your peace, empower as many people as possible, advance humanity, try to build global bridges (in some small way… one mind, one life, one heart, one small step at a time).
Don’t limit God. My Grace is sufficient for you. Increase my faith, extend my territory. SURRENDER (total)
“Lord, Let more people experience who You really are. Expand my spirit.”
The highest goal of my ‘little’ life is knowing You.
Be a light of hope to others.
“The full flower that is the hope of the world may be found in the figure and life of Jesus.”
“A life lived in the Spirit of Christ will never die.”
May you see God’s bright light on the road ahead.
Get close to God. SURRENDER to God’s will, but this is NOT passivity. One needs to take ACTION, stepping out in FAITH. TRUST (for greater and ultimate good) and OBEY!
“Let more people experience who You really are. Expand my spirit.”
“Lord, give me dreams to broaden my horizons and help me to reach out to all you have in store for me. Use my little life as a focus for Your endless possibilities.”
“Lord, increase my faith and broaden my horizons for all the rich promises you have in store for me. Reveal Your Honour and Glory”

About the submitter:
In his various writings Craig strives in some small way to break down social, cultural, religious and economic barriers through “planting, then sowing ideas as ‘seeds of hope’”. He believes that whilst we should celebrate our differences, what we share is way more important than what divides us.
The various books* that Craig “felt inspired to write” are available at: http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4http://www.creativekiwis.com/amazon.html and http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/craiglock
Craig is currently writing a new novel, a rewarding tale of faith, hope and especially love
“Faction”, but perhaps even a true story!!!!
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.”
- Chinese proverb
“A book is small enough to hold in your hand; but when you read it, the walls fall away and you’re in a room as big as the world.”
“A book, like a dog, is man’s best friend, but inside it’s too dark to read.”
- Groucho Marx (I “tink”)

.“The world’s smallest and most exclusive bookstore”
Together, one mind, one heart, one life, one small step at a time, let’s plant the seeds, the hope for a better and brighter future
“Many small (yet significant) steps by many ‘ordinary, little’ people will eventually reach their destination.
