Success Quotes

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people

and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest
critics and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate
beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch or a redeemed
social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

 
 
“The vision to see, the faith to believe, and the will to do will take
you anywhere you want to go.”
Anonymous
 

“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-
satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you
are capable of becoming.”
John R. Wooden

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:3-4

A New Purpose

A 60-year-old hotel in Kansas is being renovated into apartments. A rusty ship that is docked in Philadelphia is being restored and may become a hotel or a museum. Hangar 61, an admired piece of architecture at the old Stapleton Airport in Colorado, is being transformed into a church. Each structure had a specific use that is no longer viable. Yet someone was able to see promise and a new purpose in each one.
If structures can find new life and purpose, why not people? Think about these men in the Bible whose lives took an unexpected direction. There was Jacob, who wrestled with the angel of the Lord (Gen. 32); Moses, who talked to a burning bush (Ex. 3); Paul, who was temporarily blinded (Acts 9). Their stories were different, but all had a change of purpose when their encounter with God sent them down a new path.
We too may experience circumstances that change the course of our lives. But God reminds us of this: I loved you before you loved Me. I want to give you hope and a future. Give all your worries to Me because I care about you (1 John 4:19; Jer. 29:11; 1 Peter 5:7; John 10:10).
As you cling to God’s promises, ask Him to reveal new direction and purpose for your life.
 
 
God has a purpose for your life,
So what you have to do
Is follow Him, believing that
He’ll keep directing you. —Sper
 
 
Keep your eyes on the Lord
and you won’t lose sight of life’s purpose.
