Quotes for a Peaceful Attitude

CS Lewis God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
Francois Fenelon Peace does not dwell in outward things, but within the soul; we may preserve it in the midst of the bitterest pain, if our will remains firm and submissive. Peace in this life springs from acquiescence to, not in an exemption from, suffering.
Robert J Sawyer “Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.”
Joel Osteen “God wants you to have a good life, a life filled with love, joy, peace, and fulfillment. That doesn’t mean it will always be easy, but it does mean that it will always be good.”
Joyce Meyer Many people feel so pressured by the expectations of others that it causes them to be frustrated, miserable and confused about what they should do. But there is a way to live a simple, joy-filled, peaceful life, and the key is learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit, not the traditions or expectations of man.
Norman Vincent Peale Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
Francois Fenelon Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to God’s will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety; desire only the will of God; seek him alone and supremely, and you will find peace.
Thomas Watson God sweetens outward pain with inward peace
Joel Osteen “It’s vital that you accept yourself and learn to be happy with who God made you to be. If you want to truly enjoy your life, you must be at peace with yourself.”
Joyce Meyer “ We don’t have to work at trying to get rid of every stressful situation. We need to learn how to embrace peace. ”
Norman Vincent Peale “I truly believe that if we keep telling the Christmas story, singing the Christmas songs, and living the Christmas spirit, we can bring joy and happiness and peace to this world.”

Quotes on Humility

Augustine If you plan to build a tall house of virtues, you must first lay deep foundations of humility.
C S Lewis “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
Francois Fenelon Whoever will labor to get rid of self, to deny himself according to the instructions of Christ, strikes at once at the root of every evil, and finds the germ of every good.
Joyce Meyer The only way to uproot pride is humility—freedom from pride and arrogance, a modest estimation of your own worth. It doesn’t mean you think lowly of yourself, but it means you are very careful not to think more highly of yourself than you ought to.
Zig Ziglar When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you.
Madeleine L’Engle “In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there’s no danger that we will confuse God’s work with our own, or God’s glory with our own.”
Charles Wesley Keep us little and unknown, prized and loved by God alone.
Augustine Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.
Ernest Hemingway “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
Mahatma Gandhi “It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson “A great man is always willing to be little.”
Blaise Pascal Do you wish people to think well of you? Don’t speak well of yourself.
C S Lewis “As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on thing and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”
H Jackson Brown Jr “Every person that you meet knows something you don’t; learn from them.”
J M Barrie “Life is a long lesson in humility.”
Joyce Meyer I think it’s safe to say that most sin stems from pride. It’s an independent spirit that wants to do its own thing without any authority or direction from anyone else.
Watchman Nee Towards himself a Christian should have a broken spirit, but towards God it should be one of rejoicing always in Him. He rejoices not for its own sake nor because of any joyful experience, work, blessing or circumstance, but exclusively because God is his center.
Rick Warren Pride builds walls between people, humility builds bridges.
Abraham Lincoln “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”
Charles Spurgeon Humility is to make a right estimate of one’s self.
Criss Jami “To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
Martin Luther “True humility does not know that it is humble. If it did, it would be proud from the contemplation of so fine a virtue.”
Albert Einstein “A true genius admits that he/she knows nothing.”
C S Lewis We must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.
Augustine It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
Joni Eareckson Tada Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God’s strength in you.
Andrew Murray The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us in our daily conduct.

Hopes & Dreams

P1050252

God plants dreams in people’s hearts.
But many people do not continue all the way to the
end in order to follow Him to the fulfillment of that dream.
Many get started and quit get started and quit get started and quit.
They do not continue because their broken heart overwhelms their hope.
They do not have any inner strength to carry them through to the end.
Jesus will bind up your wounds and heal your bruises.
His Word is the medicine for your soul.

James A Michener “Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.”
Lance Armstrong  “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.

Gena Showalter “Giving up is the only sure way to fail.”
Friedrich Nietzche “That which does not kill me, makes me stronger.”

“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility.

Quotes on Contentment and Worry

Contentment is a choice

P1080929

A Contented attitude

P1040938What is contentment?

Paul says in Philippians 4:11 “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Does that mean we are satisfied staying where we are? No, contentment means we can be happy or content, not full of stress and worry, whatever our circumstances. We find joy not just in our great heights but in the ordinary and in desperation as well. God wants us happy just traveling through our journey. Joyce Meyer says tells us to enjoy our journey from where we are now to where God is taking us.

Contentment isn’t passive, it’s accompanied by Godliness. It comes from being in right relationship with God and as first Timothy 6:6 says “true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” This means that God will bless us for just being there in whatever circumstance we find ourselves, using us to build relationships with trust and strength. We can be leaders even when we’re not in charge by affecting those around us with a good attitude.

 

P1010479What happens when we live discontented?

Unrestrained discontentment leads numerous mental and physical problems. Discontentment which results from believing we deserve more or better than we have creates a nasty attitude in us. The truth is none of us would want what we justly deserve without Jesus. Discontentment is an expression of mistrust and it dishonors God. Discontentment breeds insecurity, jealousy, strife, greed and worry.

A major problem with discontentment is worry. What is worry – a destructive mental habit which leads to numerous health problems. It is the most destructive disease. Many physical ailments are caused by dammed up anxiety and worry including arthritis, hypertension and ulcers.

 

P1010479 - CopyWhen is discontentment beneficial?

Discontentment that doesn’t come from wanting so much that it eats us from the inside out comes from our heart through God. It’s what inspires greatness; it inspires an extraordinary life in Jesus. As John Eldredge explains in Desire: the journey we must take to find the life God offers

In the quiet moments of the day we sense a nagging within, a discontentment, a hunger for something else. But because we have not solved the riddle of our existence, we assume that something is wrong—not with life, but with us…

We feel guilty about our chronic disappointment. Why can’t I just learn to be happier in my job, in my marriage, in my church, in my group of friends? You see, even while we are doing other things, “getting on with life,” we still have an eye out for the life we secretly want…

Even though we sleep, our desire does not. “It is who we are.” We are desire. It is the essence of the human soul, the secret of our existence. Absolutely nothing of human greatness is ever accomplished without it. Desire fuels our search for the life we prize. The same old thing is not enough. It never will be.

Discontentment may be the voice of God telling us it’s time to change something in our lives or to be a benefit to others. Discontentment may lead us to do something great for Him. In the correct perspective it is a good thing and can transform our lives and the lives of those we touch.

A Prayer for Contentment

Lord, help us to pray every day to count our blessings and to recognize that all we have comes from you.

Quotes for a Confident Attitude

John Maxwell We’re only an attitude away from success
Eleanor Roosevelt We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.
Helen Keller Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Joyce Meyer Insecurity, self-doubt, and fear can totally prevent us from ever reaching our full potential…where there is potential, all the parts necessary for success are there, but they are not yet put into action. Potential cannot manifest without form. What stands in the space between potential and manifestation? I believe it is three things: time, determination, and hard work!
Zig Ziglar “When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.”
Norman Vincent Peale “Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
Joyce Meyer “We don’t need self-confidence we need God-confidence”
Joyce Meyer “Attitude is your thought life turned inside out”
John Maxwell “believing the best in people usually brings the best out of people:”
William James “human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind”
Norman Vincent Peale “there is a deep tendency in human nature to become precisely like htat which you havitually ingrane yourself to be”
Mahatma Gandhi “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
Joyce Meyer “Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
Norman Vincent Peale “conditions are created by thoughts for more powerfully than conditions create thoughts… on the contrary think negative thoughts and you create around yourself an atmosphere propitious to the development of negative results”
Joyce Meyer “God has a good life for you, but you must have your mind completely renewed in order to experience it”
Ralph Waldo Emerson “A man is what he thinks about all day long”

A Confident Woman

Beaver River Falls, Minnesota

Beaver River Falls, Minnesota

Confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do — and not worrying over what you can’t do. A confident person is open to learning, because she knows that her confidence allows her to walk through life’s doorways, eager to discover what waits on the other side. She knows that every new unknown is a chance to learn more about herself and unleash her abilities.

~  Joyce Meyer ~

 

 

Confident Strength

P1170564 (2)

“We need to have a sense of triumph. Sometimes our confidence is shaken when trials come, especially if they are lengthy. We should have so much confidence in God’s love for us that no matter what comes against us, we know deep inside that we are more than conquerors. Be confident that during the trial, you will learn something that will help you in the future.“

Quotes for a Positive Attitude

Joyce Meyer “You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind.”
Norman Vincent Peale “Optimism, when applied to your life, develops strength and peace within you.”

Walt Whitman “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”
Muhammad Ali Jinnah “I do not believe in taking the right decision, I take a decision and make it right.”
Walt Whitman “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”
J. Sidlow Baxter “What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.”
Mandy Hale “A positive attitude turns “I can’t & I won’t,” into “I have & I WILL!”
Tae Yun Kim “Maintain an attitude of anticipating success!”
Israelmore Ayivor “What then is an attitude? An attitude can be redefined as an established pattern of responding or reacting to people and events under a given condition for a specific reason. It obtains its source from beliefs, values, choices and character and tells more about what a person feels about a standing circumstance.”
SupaNova Slom “The worst disability in life is a bad attitude.”
E.A. Bucchianeri “Well, if it can be thought, it can be done, a problem can be overcome”
Rodolfo Costa “Cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives, and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.”
J.A. Konrath “If you can quit, quit. If you can’t quit, stop complaining – this is what you chose.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett “If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
Israelmore Ayivor “Positive attitude enables you to go with passion and see possibility in every challenging circumstance. It was by that, that great achievers picked up metal scraps on the floor and saw machines built from it.”
Henry Ford “If you say you can or you can’t you are right either way”
Grant Von Harrison “You have the choice of deliberately directing your thinking, or allowing other forces to dictate your desires and attitudes.”
Mandy Hale “There is nothing that can happen TO you that can’t also happen FOR you…if you’ll let it.”
Charles F. Glassman “Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to success.”
Norman Vincent Peale “Deep within the individual is a vast reservoir of untapped power awaiting to be used. no person can have the use of all this potential until he learns to know his or her own self. the trouble with many people is that they got through life thinking and writing themselves off as ordinary commonplace persons. having no proper belief in themselves they live aimless and erratic lives largely because they never realize what their lives really can be or what they can become”
