Favorite Quotes To Keep You Going

I like quotes more than anything. It’s a quick way to get the gist of anything and can have so much to say in such few words. That’s one of the reasons I love writing so much. Words have so much power in them and can inspire so much, so I’m going to be sharing a few that I keep handy when I need a positive boost.


And if not, He is still good.

Sadly I don’t know who said this, there are many different sources, but I love it so much. It gives me so much hope because with whatever happens God always has the ultimate plan in my life and I can trust Him to guide me to what He wants.

The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive. • John Green, Looking for Alaska

Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite books and I can probably pick out tons of quotes that I love, so I narrowed it down. The book has some bitter truths and this quote is so simple and reminds us to let go or we’ll just go round and round.

That didn’t happen, of course. Things never happened the way I imagined them. • John Green, Looking for Alaska

It may be a bit a a downer, but hear me out. I tend to always make up grand scenarios in my head that would never come true, so reading this was 1) cool that someone relates and 2) made me realize that we need to stop imagining things a certain way because it will just upset us if it doesn’t happen. It reminds me to just go with the flow.

Don’t be afraid; just believe. • Mark 5:36

Since I can remember, this verse always stood out to me. I panic easily and want to be in control of everything. It’s another reminder to just leave everything in God’s hands and He’ll make things happen.

To create is to reflect the image of God. To create is an act of worship. • Erwin McManus

I never considered myself that creative but by selling myself short I realized that I was not living up to my full potential. This is one of those quotes that just gets to me and makes me want to use my talents because God gave them for a reason.


I had such a hard time narrowing down quotes because I have so many and I’m probably going to remember tons more after. What are some of your favorite quotes? I would love to hear them!

  • You and I are very similar in respect to the John Green the way things we imagine quote. Learning to not be disappointed when those grand scenarios don’t work out is one of my biggest ongoing battles. I really like that quote too.

  • Love these quotes! They’re so very helpful, especially starting the new year! I love the very first one! It actually comes from Daniel 3:17-18. (The abridged version lol) It’s talking about Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego getting thrown into the fiery furnace. They say to the King that God will deliver them from the fire, and even if doesn’t they still won’t worship the kings statues because God is good. I just love that story! And the quote has really helped me so much in the storms of life!

  • THANK YOU! I keep seeing it float around and never knew where it’s from. Now I need to go brush up on Daniel. It’s definitely a verse that keeps you focused on God!
