Support (Five Minute Friday)

When I got the prompt word for today, I didn’t know what to write about so I did what I usually do and searched the internet for quotes to help support my efforts. Quotes are overabundant on the internet. I found a few that I just can’t resist sharing tonight.


“Supporting another person’s success won’t ever dampen yours.” Toby Mac

“He reached down from heaven and rescued me…He drew me out of deep waters. Psalm 18:16

“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.” Isaiah 43:2

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

“Sleep in peace tonight. God is bigger than anything you will face tomorrow.” Dave Willis

“Do not be afraid or discouraged. The battle is not yours but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15

“Love asks me no questions and gives me endless support.” William Shakespeare

“Someone in your life needs to hear they matter. They’re loved. They have a future. You can tell them.” Toby Mac

We all need our friends and family to support us. However, even if they are all dead r gone from our lives right now, the things they have said to us all our lives will still be there to support and guide us in all we do. God is there to support us as well.

Times get extra tough and we need the strength and prayers our loved ones can provide. Take a minute right now to pray for someone who is on your mind or in your heart. Go ahead, we will wait. You needn’t get down on your knees to pray, save those knee for another time and just pause where ever you happen to be and think your prayer heaven-ward for God to hear.

Do you have a favorite quote that gives you support in times of trouble?

Please, won’t you share it in the comments below to lift all of us a little?

    As the fight for my life goes on, the quatation 9which I think I may have originated) that gives me the greatest comfort is this (and I ask your pardon in advance):

    The good may die young, but badass lives forever.

    I am SO not going gently into that good night.
