5 Quotes to Spark Encouragement

 

“The thing I love about God is He intentionally guides people into failure… I’ve realized that I used to be afraid of failing at the things that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.”

““The Bible is clear about two principles: (1) We always need to forgive, but (2) we don’t always achieve reconciliation. Forgiveness is something that we do in our hearts; we release someone from a debt that they owe us. We write off the person’s debt, and she no longer owes us. We no longer condemn her. She is clean. Only one party is needed for forgiveness: me. The person who owes me a debt does not have to ask my forgiveness. It is a work of grace in my heart.”

― Henry Cloud

 

“I am grateful, even in the not knowing because it stretches my faith. It makes me trust when I can’t see. It causes me to stop and pray and ask and listen. It makes me dependent. It reveals my weakness in such a way that I deeply need God.”

Mary DeMuth

 

“Friendship is a deep oneness that develops when two people, speaking the truth in love to one another, journey together to the same horizon.”

Tim Keller

 

“Sin gets its power by persuading me to believe that I will be happier if I follow it. The power of all temptation is the prospect that it will make me happier.”

John Piper
