Random Sayings to Encourage and Uplift You

"Whatever I have, Whatever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am." ~Philippians 4:13, The Message

"Pile your troubles on God's shoulders -- He'll carry your load, He'll help you out."
~Psalm 55:22, The Message

"Jesus said, 'Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift for you to God, and you will begin to sense His grace." ~Matthew 6:6, The Message

Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember that amateurs built the ark.
Professionals built the Titanic.

"Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible, and receives the impossible."
~Corrie Ten Boom

There were eleven people, ten men and one woman, hanging on a rope dangling from a helicopter.. The weight of eleven people was clearly too much for the rope, so the group decided that one person would have to get off. No one could decide who should go.
Finally, the woman volunteered. She gave a touching speech, saying that she would give up her life because women were used to giving up things for their husbands and children. When she finished speaking, all the men started clapping...

Never underestimate the power of a woman.
