Jesus Says Don't Give Up Plus Famous Motivational Quotes

All of us have lost someone we knew to a suicide or an accidental drug overdose or to alcohol. As Josh Gobin has sung "everyone wants to be understood", "everybody wants to be loved." "don't give up."

So many actors and actresses have died - tragic, senseless deaths.

Don't let your heart be heavy.

Jesus loves you.

Don't give up - you are loved!

Mother Teresa - Jesus in Disguise

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Mother Teresa

Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.

Reach Out to Those Who Are Hurting - Every Day in Every Way

I moved to Wisconsin two years ago. Strangely the world is different here. My world in Chicago was denoted by always locking my doors. Always looking behind me for the sake of safety IF someone was following me. Here in Wisconsin, life is much different.

I first found this out when the Post Office handed me their phone number! Just little me, a common citizen - the care and attention was remarkable. I am still talking about it - 24 months later.

Yesterday, I had a very unusual circumstance. I was pulling into a parking lot and a large SUV nearly hit me! I quickly honked and the collesion was averted. But to my amazement the lady got out of the car! At first I was taken aback. If I was in Chicago, I would have been scared. I was absolutely confused - why was she walking up to my car? I didn't understand.

She kindly came up and apologized! She lovingly placed her hand on my shoulder (I am still in the car!) and gently and very sincerely asked for forgiveness! Wow! And I thought the Post Office experience was remarkable.

Kindness and reaching out is what God wants from his children. God wants us to be together. God wants to be with us. Where two or more are gathered....I shall be with you. Isn't that beautiful.

Put away the pride. Reach out to others today. We are all God's children. God loves each and every one of us very much.

Don't give up - and don't give up on others. Reach out.

Starfish Story - Every One Counts

They say that Jesus is within all of us and each of us counts. This is not me saying this, these are words from those much wiser than me.

The story of the starfish I feel is so poignant and important in our lives. I urge you to take the time and enjoy this special video.

The story is essential to our understanding that each and every one of us will fail at some time and we all need a helping hand.

"The Story of the Starfish

A father and his son were walking along a deserted beach after a particularly high tide had washed up thousands of starfish onto the sand.

The boy started picking them up and throwing them back into the water one by one.

The father quizzed his son saying "You can't save them all, there are millions, you can't possibly make a difference."

The boy smiled, bent down and picked up another starfish and as he threw it back into the sea, he replied, "Made a difference to that one."

My personal favorite is song number 5 by a group called Breaking Benjamin - I will Not Bow I Will Not Break.

The Roy Jones Jr video is amazing - be sure to watch each step, it is number 7 and starts around minute 3. I want to be able to kick that high.

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

"johncfl 21 hours ago

Reminds me of a quote from one of my favorite books:
"Things around us―houses, jobs, cars―they're props, they're settings for our love. The things we own, the places we live, the events of our lives: empty settings. How easy to chase after settings, and forget diamonds! The only thing that matters, at the end of a stay on earth, is how well did we love, what was the quality of our love?"
The Bridge Across Forever
Richard Bach

Suggest Positive Thoughts - Motivation is the Key

To live simply, speak kindly, care deeply, and love generously is evidence of a blessed life. God transformed my mind and life to where these things came easier and easier through a relationship with Jesus. Praise Him for performing a miracle in my life! He quite literally brought me from death to life and life abundant!"

Josh Groban - You Raise Me Up Official Video

Let Jesus Raise You Up

"When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be."
