15 Notable Quotes That Point Your Life Forward

John Wesley
“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.”

Ted W. Engstrom

Harriet Beecher Stowe
“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

Thomas A. Edison
“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.”

Brian Tracy

John R. Wooden
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”

Louis Sacher
“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.”

James A. Michener

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Don’t ever give up.
Don’t ever give in.
Don;t ever stop trying.
Don’t ever sell out.
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.”

Yvonne is a positive thinker, a catalyst for change, and a conduit through which holistic healing takes place and destiny is fulfilled. Her ministry through her blog, Empowerment Moments, came at a very low point in her life and was born out of much adversity, persecution, physical abuses, and rejection to the point of her being suicidal. She was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. But through some miraculous means, God has given her pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable, to reach the unreachable and to empower, inspire, motivate, encourage and uplift the hurting and spiritually wounded to bring about healing and wholeness - mind, body, soul and spirit, one person at a time.

  1. You are absolutely right Kalley. We should not ever magnify or focus on our weaknesses … but rather our strengths to build on them, and to cultivate them in order for us to grow and to move forward. Great contribution you've made! Blessings and do continue to have a great day. Stay safe and keep warm.


  2. Hi Pastor Ava:
    I am surely thanking I really did not feel like posting but I quickly had to remind myself of my 365 one word 'persevere' and to nudge myself that this blog is not about me, but about God and what He wants accomplished through me and for faithful readers like yourself who follow this blog as a source of encouragement and inspiration.

    Much love and thanks as always for your love and support.


  3. John R. Wooden
    “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”

    This is my favorite. I read somewhere that we should work on improving our strengths, not weaknesses. It is our strengths that will help us move forward!


  4. ” Do not ever give up, give in, stop trying or sell out…….start where you left off, but never give up.” Thank you Minister Yvonne for such a lovely post. So often we become tired and want to give up, but thanks be to God Almighty for his Spirit of Endurance. Great post.
