Friday Five: Quotations and Affirmations 2

I thought I’d share something from my quotations collection for today’s post. If there are themes for these quotes, they have to be strength and courage to make choices. Some have a Biblical connotation, while others are about life in general. A couple of these quotes are from women who have proven to be strong themselves. I hope that you will find something that strikes a chord of strength in you, whether you’re a man or a woman.

1. “A man has to want to be in a relationship with me. I don’t want a man to be with me just because it’s convenient — I am not a 7-11!” (The source for this is unknown, but I’ve heard variations of this on at least two television shows and a movie.)

2. “You’ve got to make the choice to rejoice!” (Source Unknown)

3. “Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)

4. “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” (Mother Teresa)

5. “It’s our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” (J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter Series)

My challenge to you:

Find a scripture that illustrates one or more of the quotes. For example, the Mother Teresa quote reminds of this verse:

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. John 13:34 (NLT)

I’m praying for all of my followersand fellow bloggers this weekend. It’s something I feel led to do. If you have a specific prayer requests, post it in the comments or send it to me privately at lbtk1@aol.com

Have a blessed weekend!

    Here’s a verse for no. 2, from Habbakuk 3:17-18:

    “Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
    though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
    though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
    yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.”

    Great Post!! Thank you in advance of your prayers for your followers and bloggers. We all need prayer!! If it’s important enough that you need it given to God, then it doesn’t matter how simple or complicated or whether we can say what it is or not. 🙂
