Hey! I'm Leah Goode and here are some quotes of mine that I've tried to live by:

Christianity isn't about being perfect. It's about having your imperfections made beautiful in Christ.

The cross isn't just symbolic. It's a lifestyle.

When you fall into the wide path but realize your mistake and come back to the narrow path, Jesus doesn't rebuke you.. he says, "I missed you."

Here are some quotes from Theo F. Baart:

Worshiping God is like singing a love song.

David, a man after God's own heart, sinned real bad and God forgave him, so wouldn't He forgive us too?

God is our rock of refuge, so let us come to him and find our refuge in him. He will care for us no matter what happened, it's never to late for God's refuge.

Hi, my name is Courtney and I'm 14. Here is my quote I made up a few years ago:

Jesus stole my heart!

Until we finally realize we have absolutely no righteousness of our own in any form, that we are morally and spiritually bankrupt. Anything we might do thinking we have our own righteousness is a pretence and an insult to a Holy God. Until we realize that God came to us first and that we did not come to Him through any goodness of our own and that salvation is fully God's gift to us and that by grace through faith believing in our Lord Jesus Christ He gives us His own righteousness. Until we understand fully that God the Father can only be satisfied with what His Son did for us on the cross can we understand that serving Him is not appeasing Him but loving Him in worshipful gratitude and reverential humility. Only then can we begin to know how to serve Him in His strength and not our own.
~ Richard D. Teague

This is a scripture I do my best to live by:

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 NIV)

Salvation is Free but it is not cheap. ~ Donald Gill

I just wanted to submit this quote, it was something God whispered to my heart during a downfall in my life. A time when I just needed to hear his voice, but in all my efforts I couldn't understand what he wanted me to hear during that storm. Then he told me something: "In the midst of all the heartache, anxiety, fears, wonder and guilt you'll hear me whispering to your soul."

That just really hit home with me.

Hey! My name is Elizabeth Wilson. I'm 16 years old from Alabama. I want to put this quote on your website. This is my favorite verse in the bible.

Seek the Lord in prayer for guidance and direction. Don't force anything. Allow God to open and shut the doors of opportunity. Your part is simply to obey. If He has planted this idea in your heart and is behind what you're doing, He is obligated by his own character to see it through. Remember this: God is responsible for all the consequences of your obedience. You are responsible for all the consequences of your disobedience. ~ Charles Stanley

Hey there. My name's Caroline and I'm 14, from California. These are some quotes, and concepts that help me through my day-to-day experiences in this world. the last few are cute, and some of them made-up by me (:

If God was visible, I'd have no faith left to prove.

The Earth can shake. The mountains can crumble. But God is the Rock to which I stand upon.

(Psalms 3) He shall be like a tree, Planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruit in it's season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. If we are like trees, we bear fruit. Fruit only has one purpose, to nourish. Our "fruit" needs to be uplifting to others, and glorifying to God.

God isn't just a band-aid for our hurt, He's the doctor too.

If God could find my number, He's got yours too.  ("for you did not choose me, but I chose you" John 15:16)

I'm fifteen, and I've got a lot of learning left to do. But one thing I have truly begun to learn, and that is that everything has a purpose, and that purpose will be accomplished. Whether we see it as a blessing or the temporary opinion of curse, God has a purpose for everything. So here's a quote that I remember when I need a little reminder. ~ Megan Johnston

Christ's love is grace because he loved those who hated Him.

If pain didn't exist, we would never know comfort.

Why would Christians go to heaven if God comes to Earth? (Rev. 21:2-3)

The nature of Man is too dark for him to see his own monstrosity.

Being in the hands of God is being in an iron grip. God will not let go of you, and no one can remove you.

You cannot understand how good God is through His grace without understanding how evil Man is.

Be wise to insure that every idle word spoken is carried with peace, driven with love, and filled with hope. For this we know is certain, one day our words will become our last. ~ Courtney Taylor James

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

There is no looking back. I have stepped over the line. I won't let up, back up, give up, or shut up. My Focus is Clear, My path is Straight. My God is Reliable. I am a disciple of Christ. I am not ashamed of the Gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: First for the Jew, then for
the Gentile.

Every choice has a consequence.

Only God is greater than love.

Christ came before you
The Holy Spirit comes with you
The Father comes a little after
They all meet you together in the end

Hope you like it!

God is in control of your life, you’re in control of whether that’s true or not.

My name is Akua Asamoah Kwarteng from Ghana in West Africa. I was inspired when I saw the wonderful quotes on your webpage, it was my first time. I pray that God helps you to reach all languages with His inspirational words. Well, this is a quote I encourage myself with:

If you say you can, you can
Never say you can't
Because God has no can't in his dictionary
So be positive as an image of God
For with Him all impossibilities are possible

When you are going through Hell, don't stop!

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a married mother of two. I was just sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful day God gave me and I thought of this quote:

Don’t let fiction overcome the word. – Michelle Young

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.

I asked God for water, He gave me an ocean.
I asked God for a flower, He gave me a garden.
I asked God for a friend, He gave me all of YOU...
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

Here are some quotes from Anne Dela Viña. She offers these to encourage those who are experiencing unexplainable trials:

Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, but God's always ready, to answer your call.

He knows every heartache, sees every tear, a word from His lips can calm every fear.

Your sorrows may linger throughout the night, but suddenly vanish at dawns early light.

The Savior is waiting somewhere above, to give you His grace and send you His love.

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, "God always sends rainbows .... after the rain.

You can't tap your back for a job well done.
You can't hug yourself for comfort.
You can't cry on your shoulders when tears fall.
That's why you have GOD in your life,
to let Him do whatever you can't.

Emotions are like an ocean; sail on it but don’t build on it. While sailing, make God your Helmsman and His word your anchor.
Never allow your emotions to set you in motion. It takes you through a rugged unstable path

Here are three quotes submitted by JR Almodovar from the Philippines:

We are all here on earth to study and learn about our spirituality.. we will be taking our final examination later on to know if we pass or fail.. and we'll know then where we are heading to.

The greatest gift we received is Life; the life we have and the life that was given to redeem us.. now what are you doing to that LIFE?

The most precious metal of all? GOLD.. Nope, the nails used to take away our sins.

Here are three quotes by Glenn W. Davies - W.I.R.E.D. Youth Ministries Inc.

If Christ unconditionally loved me how can I do any less to others?

If our awesome God is already in our tomorrows, can we not trust Him with every today?

No one who has ever chosen to trust God has made the wrong decision.

My name is Misty Tesch. I am a single mom of two kids. This quote here has helped me to deal with people that I have had problems with. It does help if you just remember this saying:

Love the unlovable
Forgive the unforgivable
Cause that is what God would do.

Here is another quote by Misty:

There are two kinds of people…Ones who believe in God…Ones who don’t believe in God.

Hi, I'm Gerard, and I'm 14. I made these quotes myself.

Life isn't a journey, it's a walk with God.

I look in the sky, and I see clouds.
He looks from the sky, and He sees repentance.

He sees me, not through my eyes,
But through my heart.

CROSS = Christ Repented Our Sin Selflessly

The following quotes were submitted by Ashley P. (Ohio), age 16. Here motto is: "Pray daily: God is easier to talk to than most people."

Joy isn't a feeling that comes and goes. We choose to live in joy by trusting in God. And that joy makes us strong.

Jesus was not a victim at the cross. He was a volunteer. He went and willingly died for you. He didn't have to. He wanted to.

Even if you were the only person on earth, Jesus would have still gone to the cross for you. That's how much he loves you.

The creation is God's gift to humankind. Such a precious gift is surely worthy of our protection and care.

Sometimes God puts difficult people in our lives to change us. Sometimes he puts us in their lives to change them.

What could possibly make more sense than asking for what you want from the most powerful and loving person in the universe? Even if He says no, at least you've taken your request all the way to the top.

When you need him the most he is there
When you are not in dire need of his help he is there

When you are in pain he is is watching
When you are weeping he is listening

You don't appreciate him but he is there
You push away his love but he is fighting for you

All he is doing is testing your faith
Will you win or lose?

Abigail ~ God's child

The winning horse doesn't know why it runs a race.

God wants us to win.

Only GOD can turn MESS into... a MESSage
a TEST into... a TESTimony
a TRIal into... a TRIumph
a VICTim into... a VICTory
GOD is GOOD... all the time.

If frustration comes, think of happy thoughts.
If you can't go on, sit and look at the sky.
If you can't think anymore, lay down and cover up with pillows.
If things get mixed up, call a friend.
And if everything else fails there is one you can trust, even from the very beginning... GOD.

If GOD gave you roses and then you ask, "Why are there no thorns?"
God would just smile and show His bleeding hands
saying... "I took them away, to save you from pain."

Here a few quotes from Deb that she has in her Bible that she really likes and would like to share:

God formed us,
Sin deformed us,
Christ transforms us.

If you can think of nothing for which to give thanks, then you have a poor memory.

When you pray, it’s better to have a heart without words, than words without heart.

When God forgives, it’s time to forget!

Hi! My name is Lura Cox and I am currently a student at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, NC. I am currently doing the Bible study, A Heart Like His, by Beth Moore. Here are some quotes I found to be helpful from her Bible study. I hope these brighten someone’s day!

God needs all of your heart- not just a part of it.

Lord, don’t let me forget what it was like without you.

If you are delighting in God, and there is something not in His will, you will tire of it.

Praise God for all the times He told you “No”. Every time He tells you “No”, He’s leading you to a better “Yes”.

You can come to a point where you have to change your life or get out of the Word because it’s painful; to live in the Word, you have to change your life and surrender it to God.

Only God can give us the completeness we desire.

Anything we’re hanging onto besides God is hanging on by a thread.

If a conversation is between at least two people...let God have His part.

A sword is only as good as its edge---the sharper the edge the better for battle.  The study of the Word of God is to hone and sharpen the Sword of God that is used in our warfare against the unseen sinful forces of the world.  

When Jesus saved me, I was lost, undone, and a mess---since that day I’m not as lost, not as undone, and not such a mess.  I’m thankful that God is long-suffering.

Here's a quote that I learned in college that helped me to make it through:

God never gives us more than we can handle, He just pushes our limits so that we can handle the blessing that He has in store for us.

Here's another quote that I came up with when I didn't know what God had for my life after college when it came time to do what I'd learned in college.

Life is great when you love what you do! Take risks every once in a while. Go skydiving, bungee jumping, or white water rafting in the Grand Canyon. Or just do something, not knowing fully what will happen, trusting in God that He will make a good thing in the end. And after you've tried everything else, if you do just that, you will have found in the first place that what you really wanted is something that can only be obtained by not relying on yourself.

Though my mind struggles with the scandal of faith, my heart knows for certain there is only one true God. Therefore I will always point you in His direction, though I may not be able to go with you that day. - Beverly T. Gooden

God decided to stop leading us tomorrow
Because we didn't follow him today...

What if...?
God didn't walk with us today

because we did not open the door of our hearts...

What if...?
God would not hear us today
because we would not listen to Him yesterday...

What if...?
God answered our prayers the way we answer his call to service...

What if...?
God met our needs the way we give Him our lives...

This quote was written and submitted by 13 year old David from California. He said it changed his life:

We have 1 thing to consider every time that we are faced with a choice. Would you rather die in regret wishing you hadn’t done something in your life, or die in aspiration wishing you had done more in your life? But above all we must remember God, and honor him in every decision that we make.
