At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different that your dream. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s “happy every after,” just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while people make even take your breath away.
Grey’s Anatomy

Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future. It’s simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.
Joni Erickson Tada

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Helen Keller

Without faith a man can do nothing; with it all things are possible.
Sir William Oslir

And then I realized I do have faith. Faith in myself. Faith that I would one day meet someone who would be sure that I was the one.
Sex and the City

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
Erich Fromm

Our Creator would never have made such lovely days, and given us the deep hearts to enjoy them, above and beyond all thought, unless we were meant to be immortal.
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. Touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are sacred moments and life itself is grace.
Frederick Buechner

Love is still a simple act of faith, and a faithful heart is always worth the wait.
Neil Diamond

Because being in an actual relationship means taking a risk, you know? It’s just, a leap of faith. No matter how many times one might have been disappointed in the past.
Sex and the City

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.
Gail Devers

Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods.
C. S. Lewis

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr

You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.
Mary Manin Morrissey

Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.
Rabindranath Tagore

Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts and no one to thank.
Christina Rossetti

You can’t measure faith.
Nicole Langkamp

Come like the day, come chase away this darkness
I’ve been living here so long and I give up
Come wash away everything I’ve built between us
And I will sing unending songs of Your love
Rush of Fools

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 4:16

Rest in Me, My child. This time devoted to me is meant to be peaceful, not stressful. You don’t have to perform in order to receive My love. I have BOUNDLESS, UNCONDITIONAL Love for you. How it grieves Me to see My children working for Love: trying harder, yet never feeling good enough to be loved. Be careful that your devotion to me does not become another form of works. I want you to come into My presence joyfully and confidently. You have nothing to fear, for you wear My own righteousness. Gaze into My eyes and you will see no condemnation, only Love and delight in the one I see. Be blessed as my face shines radiantly upon you, giving you peace.
Jesus Calling

You are my strong tower, shelter over me, beautiful and mighty. Everlasting King, You are my strong tower, fortress when I’m weak. Your name is true and holy and Your face is all I seek
Kutless

When I wander through the desert and I’m longing for my home, all my dreams have gone astray. When I’m stranded in the valley and I’m tired and all alone… It seems like I’ve lost my way. I go running to your mountain where your mercy sets me free
Kutless

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Maryanne Williamson

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world
C. S. Lewis

Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.
C. S. Lewis

God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain.
C. S. Lewis

Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
Helen Keller

Come like the day, come chase away this darkness
I’ve been living here so long and I give up
Come wash away everything I’ve built between us
And I will sing unending songs of Your love
Rush of Fools

C. S. Lewis

its inside, its in between,
these times you’re healing
and when your heart breaks
the times that you feel like you’ve fallen from grace
the times you’re hurting
the times that you heal
the times you go hungry and are tempted to steal
in times of confusion and chaos and pain
im there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
im there through your heartache
im there in the storm
my love i will keep you by my power alone
i dont care where you’ve fallen, where you have been
i’ll never forsake you
my love never ends, it never ends
Tenth Avenue North

And I’ll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don’t fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you
Tenth Avenue North

You got to wake up, live, love with a bit of energy cause the rhythm you’re sending me is oh so nice. And I finally found the reason the meaning for my beliefs and I been waiting for this my whole life.
The Movement

Ooh, your love is a symphony
All around me, running to me
Ooh, your love is a melody
Underneath me, and into me
Oh, your love is a song
Your love is a song
Oh, your love is a song
Your love is strong
Switchfoot

You are everything that I live for
Everything that I can’t believe is happening
You’re standing right in front of me
With arms wide open
All I know is
Every day is filled with hope
You are everything that I believe for
And I can’t help but breathe you in
Matthew West

I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet
It ought to be
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Jason Gray

I stumbled upon this and thought you needed to be reminded of this simple truth that I find myself often overlooking. And please try not to think that I’m sounding cliche and giving cookie cutter responses. But here’s the truth. You aren’t perfect. You’re far from it. (And that’s a universal you, not just you). God doesn’t expect you to make all the right choices. He knows that we are going to turn from him 99 % of the time. Hell, I know I do. But he gave is son for that 1% giving way for the possibility of a relationship with you. You are redeemed through his blood. And that’s how God looks at you. As a little 5 year old version of you, running toward you in hopes that he can just squeeze the crap out of you. That is who you are in Christ. So don’t listen to those lies in your head that you aren’t “enough.” Just focus on that 1% of when you turn to Christ.
Nicole Langkamp

Turn me around. Pick me up. Undo what I’ve become. Lead me back to the place of forgiveness and grace.
Rush of Fools

You’re all I want. You’re all I’ve ever needed. You’re all I want. Help me know you are near.
Kutless

As I wait, you make me strong. As I long, draw me to our arms. As I stand and sing your praise you come and fill this place.
Ten Shekel Shirt

If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.
C. S. Lewis

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
St. Therese of Lisieux

Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.
Gordon B. Hinckley

You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body
C.S. Lewis
