We all need a bit of encouragement at times, don’t we? It is most needed when we find ourselves at a crossroad and hope seem to be lost in the midst of what we are going through. Truth be told, hope is never lost. We just need to look to the right place where we can grab hold of it in an instant to take us to the next level. Here are a few quotes from some amazing influential Christian leaders. It is my prayer that you be blessed by them.
