Quotes That Inspire Me, Pt. 2

Hey there, everyone! ❀ I hope that you’re doing well. πŸ™‚ Last month, I shared a post that talked about some of my favorite quotes at the moment, and today I’m back for parr two! Pinterest has so many inspirational quotes, and I am constantly finding new ones that are extremely relevant to my life.

Just like last time, I have handpicked five that I’d like to share with you. Let’s get right into this!

My Top 5 Current Favorite Quotes

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.

For many, this day is at the very end of each week, but on most modern calendars (I’m still not sure why, haha), Sunday starts off each new set of seven days. I know for me personally, I have a hard time with Sundays, because it’s the last bit of my weekend. While my weekdays could be considered by none as stressful or negative when juxtaposed to the joyful end of the week, it still makes me sad that my break from school is drawing to a close. I would think that this is normal for most people, but I desire to look at Sundays differently. It should be a day spent enjoying being with my family, as well as reflecting on the week before and looking ahead to the week soon to follow. Dreading the future, no matter how boring the following days may turn out to be (lol), ruins what could be a positive mindset.

Stay close to anything that makes you glad to be alive.

Many of my current hobbies and interests, from blogging, to playing the piano, to writing stories, make me extremely happy to be alive. At this moment in my life, they bring me great joy, but that doesn’t mean that they always will. However, I want to focus on spending my time doing things that I truly enjoy, and slowly getting rid of anything else.

The Lord isn’t slow about keeping His promises.

This quote was derived from 2 Peter 3:9, and I absolutely love it! It’s something so important for me (and all of us!) to remember, and this quote is a beautiful way of putting it.

Sometimes, I need to focus on the battle God wants to win in me more than the battle I want Him to win for me.

This one completely stopped me in my tracks. I have read hundreds thousands of inspirational quotes, but there are just some that have deeper meaning for me than all the rest. The above quote^ is one such example. I’ve never thought about exhibiting such surrender before, but I absolutely want to now. It’s hard to focus on whatΒ He desires when we’re so desperately chasing after whatever we’re focused on. This really gave me something to think about.

Somebody, somewhere is depending on you to do what God has called you to do.

This is another mind-blowing quote for me. I could just picture myself helping the people the Lord has called me to serve … it’s a beautiful thought. ❀

    1. I’m happy you liked them, Lydia! It would be hard for me to pick a favorite, too (: aw thank you!! I would enjoy doing a tutorial. Also, just so you know, many of my pictures come from free photo websites, such as Pexels and Pixabay. I wish I had taken the pics in this post, but I didn’t, haha. You should definitely check out those websites!

  2. Weekends are a mixed bag for me. Sometimes I get to be lazy, and sometimes I spend most the weekend working. I wouldn’t say my weekdays are horribly stressful or anything, but I am working pretty much all day until around 6 or 7 in the evening, depending on how early a start I get. (Late start today, haha!) Some of that work is dog/animal stuff and piano, which are rewarding, and some of it is school, which really depends. πŸ˜‰

  3. Great post Maggie! This one is encouraging me today: The Lord isn’t slow to keep his promises. Made me think that he promises to love us and his love isn’t on a timeline. Everything else that we ask for is a gift.

  4. Girl, the last quote!!! Quotes like that one always encourage me. As a Christian, I’ve also heard quotes like, “Only you can tell your story.”

    I really love what you shared because they all are true. I too sometimes look sadly on Sundays because it is the last day before the week begins again. But you’re right, perspective needs to change for the better, not the worst. πŸ™‚

  5. I love the first quote! I’ve found that if I don’t take Sunday to rest, I’m so much more stressed and tired the rest of the week. When I was younger, I never understood why my parents would tell me to rest on Sundays but now I understand! Need those rest days! πŸ™‚

  6. I liked the quote, “Somebody, somewhere is depending on you to do what God has called you to do.”

    Becuase it’s a reminder that we are called to go make disciples and that somewhere, there are people that God wants you to touch.

  7. “Somebody, somewhere is depending on you to do what God has called you to do.” I love this. Sometimes, good things are not happening to us because we are the good thing that needs to happen to other people. ❀
