Favourite Quotes (Explanation)

As promised I’m doing a completely different post on the picture I blogged about a few weeks ago with my favourite quotes (if you haven’t seen it click here: https://asdawkins.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/favourite-quotes/ )

“In you, through you, for you, there’s no limit to what God can do.” — Im not sure who this quote is by but it’s on a poster at my physio therapist’s office/gym. I love it because of the message it brings. It’s simple but very reassuring. Any time i have doubts about things i dream of doing i immediately remember this quote and I’m energized to just hit the ground running.

“Trust God in everything so you can trust him for everything.” –Anon. – This one i found one morning on Our Daily Bread’s website. Again another true and inspiring quote. When you trust God IN every situation whether it be good or bad you can trust Him that at the end of it you’ll be exactly where you need to be and that it will be for your good.

“I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence I can reach for, perfection is God’s business.” – Michael J. Fox. — This is definitely my favourite of them all. I first saw this quote on Myspace when I was about 14. I remember reading it like five times just to let it sink in. Sometimes we can get so caught up in what society expects of us that we try so hard to be “perfect.” It’s impossible. Nobody is perfect! NOBODY. And i had to let that sit with me for a while until it became my mantra “Only God is perfect, just do your best.” I recited that for years and still do when i start to get a little hard on myself or my self esteem gets down.

“Dum Spiro Spero.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero — While i breathe i hope is the English translation. Constant reminder when life gets tough and things seem to be going all the way wrong is that as long as I’m breathing i have the will to turn it around. (thinking of tattooing this one)

“Life isn’t about finding comfort(shelter) in the storm, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Acheron (Sherrilyn Kenyon) — They’re many variations of this quote around but i first read it in a book called Seize The Night (or was it Acheron?) I don’t quite remember which book it was to be honest. (lol) But it’s definitely a quote i hold on to.

And lastly, “Some of God’s greatest gifts are surrounded by great challenges.” Another Daily Bread post; THIS is a reflection of my life. I know exactly what this quote means because it is my testimony! This is just a reminder that even though there might be pain in the night, joy comes in the morning. Another mantra of mine. 🙂

These are my favourite quotes and what they mean to me. Share yours with me in the comments or on your blog and send the link to my page!
