And moreover we use them to inspire each other. When powerful words are uttered, the possibilities are endless. Every Christian should have quotes that they carry within their heart and soul throughout life. These gracious words of wisdom will be the difference makers. When a bad day is in the forecast, every Christian will find a silver lining when they recite these powerful quotes.

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom

It’s important to deal with the issues at hand and move forward. Allowing sorrow to overflow into tomorrow is self inflictive and will only further produce negativity in life. When worrisome times take the wheel, do your best to overcome the obstacle and find the positivity in the next day.

“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” – Soren Kierkegaard

It’s relatively easy to dissect the past and pin point the mistakes made. However, it’s not an easy task to figure out the mistakes you will mistake as you move forward. The only solution is to accept that there is no solution at all – we must live our lives true to our faith. Along the way, you’re destined to make mistakes. Instead of standing stagnant, learn and move forward.

“Never lose an opportunity for seeing anything that is beautiful; For beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, And thank God for it as a cup of His blessing.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

God is all around us. His presence is in the air we breathe, the smile on children’s faces and even in the love that we share with friends and family. Without God there would be no existence. It’s important to remember the power of the Lord.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Life is full of chances – some of them good and others bad. Regardless of the outcome, it’s important to live life to its fullest. That means learning how to get up when you fall. In reality an individual’s future is contingent on the decisions they make and the opportunities that individual chooses to seize.

“He said “Love…as I have loved you.” We cannot love too much.” – Amy Carmichael

Everyone gets their heart broken a few times and many of those people wish, internally, that they didn’t love as much. But, the truth is no matter how much you think you love something or someone it will never amount to God’s love. Remember the Lord never put a meter on his ability to love and neither should you. If you guard your love then you’ll never experience real love.

“The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, ‘O God, forgive me,’ or ‘Help me.’” – Billy Graham

When you get kicked down it’s relatively easy to feel sorry for yourself and loathe within self pity. However, it’s important to recognize that reality behind difficult times – they’re frequent and they happen to everyone. Instead of allowing yourself to wallow in pity, ask God for guidance and forgiveness. Once you’ve reached out to your Savior you will find the answers to the future.
