Favorite Quotes

Here are some of my favorite quotes and scriptures by topic. These words (particularly the scripture verses) have had healing power in my life, and I daily feast on them. I hope they can help you if you need a refreshing boost of encouragement today!

Trials:

Our world is filled with hurting people who have lives that are spinning out of control with pain we didn’t ask for or could ever even imagine. And God is making a promise to us, saying, “I am a universe maker and I am a heart former, but I am also big enough to be intimately acquainted with all the circumstances of every one of your lives, and I promise you, no matter what comes in this lifetime, no matter how difficult the road or how dark the night, I will hold onto you and I will literally hold you together.”-Louie Giglio

‎You’re blessed when you’re out of options, and all you can do is lean on God. Because when you realize your need for God, it is only then that you tap into His immeasurable greatness and goodness. You’re blessed when you’ve been stripped of that which is most precious to you. Because only then can you be tenderly embraced by the One most precious to you. – Eric Ludy (Paraphrase of Matthew 5:3-5)

Purity:

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Hope:

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the scriptures, we might have hope. Romans 15:4

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his son. Romans 8:28-29a

Healthy Thinking:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8

    Hi Jennifer, I found your site on accident while looking for an appropriate Bible quote as words of encouragement to our Director at Fresh Start Ministries in Ontario, CA as we seek a new building for the ministry. Your Roman’s 8:28 just nailed it! Thank you for a humble and beautiful blog that expresses your faith and allows others to share in the Word. May
    your day be as wonderful as your heart is.
