Encouragement for your journey

We all need some encouragement from time to time.
Here are some quotes, scriptures and pictures to lift your spirit and give you a little push when times get tough.....

If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?  - Unknown

I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders. – Jewish Proverb

James 1:12 "Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which [the Lord] has promised to those who love Him."

Romans 8:35-39 "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, "For Thy sake we are being put to death all day long; We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered." But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
“Adversity is the diamond dust heave polishes its jewels with”  ~Robert Leighton

Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” ― C.S. Lewis
