These are just a few quotes from different movies, speakers, presidents, authors and athletes, as well as a few scriptures, that have helped me.
A good quote is…well it’s just a good pick-me up. We all need those.

“As you go through this day, trust Me to provide the strength that you need moment by moment. Don’t waste energy wondering whether you are adequate for today’s journey.

“God loves you. Personally. Powerfully. Passionately. Others have promised and failed. God has promised and succeeded. He loves you with an unfailing love, and His love, if you will let it, can fill you and leave you with a love worth giving.” -Max Lucado

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ” -Marianne Williamson

May we be consumed with the Creator of all things rather than with things created.

You were made BY God and FOR God and until you understand that, life will never make sense.
Do you what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyway.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
