Quotes for Helping Yourself through Grief


Two words will help you cope when you run low on hope: accept and trust. Accept the mystery of hardship, suffering, misfortune, or mistreatment. Don't try to understand it or explain it. Accept it. Then deliberately trust God to protect you by His power form this very moment to the dawning of eternity." From Hope Again, When Life Hurts and Dreams Fade by Charles Swindoll

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it" Charles R. Swindoll

"I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me." Charles R. Swindoll
