10 Inspirational Quotes on Not Giving Up

10 Inspirational Quotes on Not Giving Up:

  1. “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” – Maya Angelou

  2. “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison

  10. “The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.” – Author Unknown

 

 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” – James 1:2-4 MSG

“There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!” – Romans 5:3-5 MSG

 

“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.” – Galatians 6:9-10 MSG

I Will Not Lose Heart

 

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
The Message (MSG)

Hold On

Here is a great video and song by 3 of my friends from Broadjam: Dianne MacAdam, Nathaniel Jones, and Peter Olach (their links are below)  – Awesome song and video! I need to remember this – HOLD ON!

HOLD ON

I’m tired of pulling weeds
I’ve been here on my knees
But they keep coming back (they keep coming back)

No matter how I try
To light my darkened sky
It always turns to black (it always turns to black)

I need to get away
From all these debts to pay
I’m living in the red (so tired of this debt)

Fingers about to break
Can’t seem to cure this ache
I’m clinging to the ledge (don’t know if I can)

It’s all I can do
To Hold On

And I can hear the train
Making its way again
Somehow the steel on steel (sounds like a promise)

I climb on board the car
Nothing but my guitar
And try to lose the fear (and leave the darkness)

I’m leaving all I know
I’m going with the flow
And pray my soul’s fulfilled (I’m leaving all I know)

The only way to see
If this is right for me
Is to leave the status quo (I’m leaving all I know)

It’s all I can do
To Hold On

You’re battered, bruised and scarred
This life can be so hard
You must remember Who You Are

Take the time to breathe
The water will recede and
Find a way to stop the bleeding
Hold On
Hold on
