encouraging words

What encouraging words help you? We all need our own healing words, hopefully you might find comfort and reassurance here.

“We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence….we need silence to be able to touch souls” Mother Theresa

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” Romans 12: 12

“When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom or criticize you, REMEMBER they’re telling you their story. Not yours!”

“Don’t worry about what people say behind your back, they are the people who are finding faults in your life instead of fixing the faults in their own life”

“ There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it hardly becomes any of us to talk about the rest of us “ – Edward Wallis Hoch

“Sometimes it is better to be kind than to be right. We do not need an intelligent mind that speaks but a patient heart that listens”………hold that thought, and make that ‘usually’

Beautiful gifts!  Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Want them? Give them. You’ll receive them back manifold…..!

“If we can find short-term incentives that are consistent with our long-term objectives, it is much easier to make the right decisions in the moment.” – Tom Rath, Wellbeing:The Five Essential Elements.

“Often, the very people out to get us are afraid of us.”

I jotted these quotes and encouragements from various sources.

I have found it encouraging, reading them every now and then, to keep my perspective on the right track.
