The 3 Day 3 Quotes Challenge – Day One

Robin,ย Carly, and Jo have all nominated me for the 3 Day 3 Quotes challenge, so I’m going to add them together and make this a 9 Day 9 Quotes challenge! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks guys, this is going to be so much fun! (Though I don’t know if I’ll nominate three bloggers each day; I think I’ll nominate one per day since I’m doing 9 quotes.) I posted one yesterday as well for the Sunshine Blogger Award, so I guess this will be 10 days of quotes. (And then Penelope Grace shocks all of her readers by going from posting once a week to posting ten days in a row. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜…)

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days, one quote each day.
  • Share why this quote appeals to you so much.
  • Nominate three different bloggers for each day.

Fun story… back in 2016, I shared several of my favorite quotes and Bible verses on images I took or made, so I’ll be reposting a few of those. But I also plan to make a few new images with quotes if I have time. ๐Ÿ™‚

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)

So this one… I like it because it is a reminder that if we keep persisting, we can reach the goalย if it is in God’s will. God could have taken the snail and brought him to the ark, but then the snail would have missed out on the journey that God may have had in store. He doesn’t always give us an easy way to get to wherever He asks us to go. We must keep pressing toward the goal. โค

Here is one of my favorite quotes by Charles Spurgeon, that I combined a while back with a photo I took of a snail. ๐Ÿ™‚

Persevere, according to my dictionary, means, “to continue in some effort, in spite of difficulty, and be steadfast in purpose.”

1st Corinthians 15:58: Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Persevere for the Lord; for He is worth the effort! ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever! Let Israel say, โ€œHis steadfast love endures forever.โ€ Let the house of Aaron say, โ€œHis steadfast love endures forever.โ€ Let those who fear the Lord say, โ€œHis steadfast love endures forever.โ€ Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. (Psalm 118:1-6)
