FC: You Are Loved!
1: History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again. - Maya Angelou
5: My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny. - Elaine Maxwell
7: Laura Story - "Blessings" Lyrics We pray for blessings We pray for peace Comfort for family, protection while we sleep We pray for healing, for prosperity We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering All the while, You hear each spoken need Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things ‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops What if Your healing comes through tears What if a thousand sleepless nights Are what it takes to know You're near What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise We pray for wisdom Your voice to hear And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love As if every promise from Your Word is not enough All the while, You hear each desperate plea And long that we'd have faith to believe ‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops What if Your healing comes through tears What if a thousand sleepless nights Are what it takes to know You're near And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise When friends betray us When darkness seems to win We know the pain reminds this heart That this is not, this is not our home, It's not our home ‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops What if Your healing comes through tears And what if a thousand sleepless nights Are what it takes to know You're near What if my greatest disappointments Or the aching of this life Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy And what if trials of this life The rain, the storms, the hardest nights Are your mercies in disguise
14: People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them. ~G.B. Shaw, Mrs. Warren's Profession, 1893 | Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. ~Earl Nightingale | “Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” -Newt Gingrich | "If we want to change our lives, our relationships or even the world we must start by understanding and overcoming the shame that keeps us silent." -Anonymous Professor
15: "Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light." — Brene Brown
23: The best way out is always through. - Robert Frost
29: Youre Beautiful by Mercy Me The days will come when you don't have the strength When all you hear is you're not worth anything Wondering if you ever could be loved And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much You're beautiful You are made so much more than all of this You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His You're beautiful I'm praying that you have the heart to find Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight For all the lies you've held inside so long And they are nothing in the shadow of the cross You're beautiful You are made so much more than all of this You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His You're beautiful Before you ever took a breath Long before the world began Of all the wonders He possessed There was one more precious Of all the earth and skies above You're the one He madly loves Enough to die You're beautiful In His eyes
37: We know you can do it. We pray that you will. We love you!
