Mottos to Live By

I have two mottos by which I live.  They are ‘never give up and never give in’ I base this motto the text found in  Philippians 4:13 , “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”  Whether I’m playing a game with friends, or my entire worlds seems out to get me, this motto plays on my lips.

My second motto is more of a prayer than a saying which I recite several times a day– ‘Your will, Father not mine, Your will, Father, not mine, and in Your time.’  The scripture on which I base my faith is found in Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”  It’s taken many years for me to learn that God knows what’s best for me.  Whenever I’ve forgotten this truth, I’ve suffered in my own defeat.  His plan for my life far exceeds any dream or goal I could imagine.

So what promise is your personal motto for living each day?  Or maybe two?   Share your motto  with me and tell me how it encourages you.  You can do that either in the comment column on this blog or on facebook or my e-mail account–  If you wish I will pass on the words you find encouraging encouragement along your name if you’d like to others.   Besides I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Oh, there are so many awesome promises — something to suit every need! Two that I find myself claiming often, though, are:

    The joy of the LORD is my strength… even when life seems dreary or impossible.


    He who began a good work in me will go on completing it… Don’t give up; rather, press onward and upward!

    (Those are my own slightly revised “translations.” :))
