Wow, today is Day 26 of our Write 31 Days Challenge! We could use a little inspiration to finish strong with our Top 10 Inspirational Quotes to Encourage.
You may find yourself in need of encouragement during a much more trying time than writing for a blog. We hope you find some comfort in the words below in the midst of trials you may be facing.
There is no particular order of importance to this list. The words of others resonate more or less depending on our circumstances and seasons of life. Quotes are also more meaningful when we know the history of the person who said the words. It can put our struggles in perspective.
We’ve included a little background to some of the authors below. We may not agree or identify with everything for which they stand, but we can relate to some of what they have gleaned from their experiences.
We might have named this post the Top 10 Inspirational Quotes to Encourage THAT AREN’T IN THE BIBLE. We consider God’s Word to be the best book of encouragement. 🙂 You can rely on it for the ultimate words of comfort!
