Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Emmanuel Teney

As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.

Mother Teresa
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Kahlil Gribran
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.

Henry Ward Beecher
Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.


Saint Augustine

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.


Sherwood Eddy

Faith is not contrary to reason. Faith is reason grown courageous.

I'm going to have to try approaching tomorrows with faith instead of anxiety. Cause the whole anxious mom thing is not working for me. Thanks for posting these great quotes!

I love the last quote! Faith isn't just being stupid. It's anchored in things that make sense even when the world around you tells you that stupidity is the accepted trend. :)
