Popular Joel Osteen Quotes

A grateful heart is like a sponge that soaks up God’s goodness.


No matter how long it’s been, no matter how impossible it looks, if you’ll stay in faith, your time is coming.


When things are difficult, smile by faith. Don’t wait until you feel better.


Some things you can only learn in the struggle. When it’s easy, when everything is going your way, that doesn’t take any faith.


You have to take the good with the bad, smile when you’re sad, love what you’ve got and remember what you had…Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret, people change, things go wrong, just remember, life goes on.


Forgiveness doesn’t mean that what that person did was right or that you even have to get back into a relationship with that person. Forgiveness simply releases the debt they owe you so that God can release the debt you owe Him. Ask the Lord to search your heart and show you if there is any unforgiveness blocking His blessing in your life. Ask Him to show you more about this gift of forgiveness so that you can walk in the freedom and victory He has for you today.


It is a hard thing to let go of mistakes we’ve made and sins. God wants us to do that because He knows the guilt and the condemnation will keep us from becoming who He has created us to be. Salvation and Christ’s love is a gift. You don’t earn it. You’ve got to receive that gift. I think one of the most important things is starting off the day forgiving others and forgiving yourself. You learn from your mistakes, but I don’t think you have to drag them back into today.


You may be at a crossroads in your life. You may have issues to deal with; people you need to forgive. You can go one of the two ways. You can ignore what you now know to be true and keep burying that bitterness in your life, pushing it deeper and allowing it to poison and contaminate you and those around you. Or you can make a much better choice by getting it out in the open and asking God to help you to totally forgive and let it all go.


When we don’t forgive, we’re not hurting the other person. We’re not hurting the company that did us wrong. We’re not hurting God. We’re only hurting ourselves.


FORGIVE The People That Hurt You. God Will Pay You Back With Double The Joy…Double The Victory.


People will try to label you not good enough, too slow, too old, too many mistakes. You can’t stop negative comments or prevent negative labels, but you can choose to not let them hold you back.


Every setback means you’re one step closer to seeing the dream come to pass.


Life is flying by. You don’t have time to waste another minute being negative, offended or bitter. If someone did you wrong, get over it and move forward.


I’m not the judge. You know, God didn’t tell me to go around judging everybody.
