Crash the Chatterbox

Crash the Chatterbox

Author: Steven Furtick

Publisher – Multnomah: Colorado Springs, Colorado, 2014

In reading this book, I have come to the conclusion that Steven has a way of writing one liners.  Let me provide fifteen quotes from the book:

  1. My soul sometimes feels like a Twitter feed where I’m following a million of the most annoying people ever, and I can’t find the Unfollow button (3).
  2. When lies are not confronted, callings are not fulfilled (9).
  3. The voice you believe will determine the future you experience (12).
  4. The chatterbox cannot control the thoughts and trajectory of the child of God who faces each day with this attitude: I have nothing to prove, because I am already approved (31).
  5. One of the main reasons we struggle with insecurity: we’re comparing our behind-the-scenes with everybody else’s highlight reel (34).
  6. I like to say that doubt is like a telemarketer.  The best strategy is never pick up the phone (51).
  7. Paper beats rock.  Rock beats scissors.  Scissors beats paper.  Dove beats serpent (61).
  8. So in other words, there is only one kind of fear I can find in the Bible that God endorses:  the fear of God (74).
  9. God whispers because He’s close (111).
  10. A believer who is equally convinced of these two realities–sin is serious, but Christ is enough–is the Enemy’s worst nightmare (124).
  11. My joy is not determined by what happens to me, but what Christ is doing in me and through me (170).
  12. Only God is big enough to fill the gap (177).
  13. Don’t let what you expected keep you from what God wants you to experience (184).
  14. A spirit of gratitude can find a blessing within any burden (193).
  15. No matter the depth of discouragement or discontent, God will always give me a way of escape, called gratitude (196).
