When you pass through the waters I will be with you. -Isaiah 43:2
Hey Chile. What’s going on? How’s it going? (Inhales.) The world is dejected, angry, tied, sad, grieving, and mourning so hard right now. Most of us are fighting differnt battles daily. And then there’s that same battle that so many of us are fighting together. Whew Chile it’s rough. And yes I said, tied. Not tired, but tied.
In all times of my life I yearn for a good scripture and I love to see or a good ole quote. I follow so many quote pages on Instagram. (aprildanielle_) And my Pinterest (RedLipstickandCammies) boards are ridiculous when it comes to quotes. I love quotes that motivate me, encourage me, fill me up, uplift me and make me see myself (self awareness.) I love love quotes. I love a good ole makes me chuckle quote. I love a, Whew, I been there before quote. I love a good ole, stop playing games with your goals, type ah quote. I’m so serious when it comes to a ,‘I KNOW THAT’S RIGHT CHILE!’ kinda quote. I like a bold statement written in words.
Ya’ll it ain’t nothing like a scripture that speaks to you. Especially, especially! A scripture that you weren’t necessarily looking for but it jumped out at you on the same day that you had to reach waaay down to even make it to the next hour. That scripture that makes you feel like you just touched the hem of His garment. Whew Jesus! That spiritual quote that will make you go to church in the middle of your living room! Sometimes you just need to see it, say it, hear it!
And that is exactly why I am here. I’m fitna give you some quotes that will give you that extra push to get up, get over it, and get through it. Chile, I will write a good quote on my bathroom mirror with red lipstick just so every time I use my bathroom I will see it, say it, and hear it. I don’t play about my peace. Every morning, when I wake up and prepare to get out of my bed. The first thing I see when I reach for my phone is my Jesus Calling devotional book. Which one I choose is up to me. That choice could cost me my peace of mind. Do you feel what I’m saying? Or nah?
Get out your notebook, journal, cell phone, pencil, pen, or lipstick. (That’s right.) Write it down. Read it, feel it, do it. These quotes may be for a relationship you needed to end yesterday. Whether it be with him, them, or they. Some of these quotes may make you fall in love, more. Some quotes may give you the motivation to finally start. There are quotes that may give you the encouragement to not quit. There may be a quote that makes you quit, your job. And there are some quotes that might make you check yourself. All I know is you need to be writing because it’s some of everything here.
I call this, THE GOOD QUOTE.

A little progress each day adds up to BIG results.
Just because you’re doing a lot doesn’t mean you’re doing something.

Excuses are monuments of nothing. They build bridges to nowhere. Those who use these tools to incompetence seldom become anything but nothing at all.

A dead battery can’t jump a dead battery. Get away from people who cannot charge your spirit when you need a jump.

My energy creates my reality. What I focus on is what I manifest.
Deep conversations, genuine prayers, & transparency attracts me.
In the middle of my chaos, there was you.
Imagine a man praying to God that he gets to marry you.
God has a love story with your name on it.
