When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
One small positive thought can change your whole day.
Don’t let anyone tell you there’s something you can’t do. If you have a dream, protect it. If you want something, go get it.
God only gives three answers to prayer:
2. ‘Not yet.’
3. ‘I have something better in mind.
Stand for what is right, even when it means you have to stand alone.
Strong people don’t put others down, they lift them up. You shouldn’t give up. Fight for yourself and who you are.
You’ve got to go through the worst times in life to get the best.
Remember, the struggle you are in today is developing your strength for tomorrow.
God is the best listener, you don’t need to shout, nor cry out loud. Because He hears even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart.
The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.
Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone. Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful!
When you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on the possibilities, you’ll have more opportunities!
You won’t ever be good enough to the wrong person. But to the right person, you are everything that they need & want in life.
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished
“Wild ducks make a lot of noise, but they also have the sense to benefit from occasionally flying in formation.”
“The art of living lies not in eliminating but in growing with troubles.”
“10% of conflicts are due to difference in opinion. 90% are due to wrong tone of voice.”

I was homeless once in a faraway place. I still ran…8 miles a day up a small mountain about 6 days a week. I did it so that I would be ready for the life that belonged to me when it came back.
I was invited to take whatever I wanted from a garden that grew near me, so I picked leaves and herbs and flowers and peas and beans and even things I didn’t like very much that none of the other tenants of the shelter I lived in took advantage of. There were at least 100 of us maybe more, the garden was all to myself. I did it to keep my body and mind as healthy and strong as I could on my food stamp budget so I would be able to spring into action and be a part of society when I was given <–(and I use that word loosely) the chance. Instead of prescriptions for depression, I asked the VA to prescribe the vitamins I couldn’t afford. Avoid the comfort food, stay away from the donuts & cake & bread and ESPECIALLY if they are free.
If you are challenged, if you are hurting, if you are having a difficult time, take care of yourself in spite of your circumstances, eat well, get good sleep, exercise, have beautiful conversations with yourself, and treat yourself as if you are getting ready for the performance of a lifetime, it will be the best thing you could ever choose to do for yourself. your moment will come, and you’ll be ready for it. Keep going, you will live again, you will love again.
