Here’s a three quotes and or tips that empower me to keep moving in my purpose:

#1. Live on Purpose with Passion!

Passion is associated with everything I do!

@LadyCookQuote- “Passion Lives, It Breathes When You Breathe!”

Don’t be afraid to stand alone. Passion gives you the strength to get up the next day and start again!

#2. BELIEVE! Believe in your purpose!

The purposeful life finds meaning in new things. Miracles happen when you believe!

#3. Trust the process and Have Faith!

Today is a new day to choose joy, to choose to smile, to choose to look up, to choose faith, to choose Jesus. It gives to you an opportunity to pray, to surrender, to let go, to hold on, to praise, to laugh, to believe, to hope, to persevere, to serve, and to love.

Developing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is a step-by-step, line-upon-line, and precept-upon-precept process. We promote the process of strengthening our faith when we do what is right—increased faith always follows as a consequence.
