Inspiration for a New Year

One of the gifts in my stocking last week was a little book called “Purpose for Every Day Living for Fathers.” I’ve made it part of my morning devotional reading and it’s been very inspirational. It’s filled with very short chapters that start with an inspiring intro, then are filled with quotes from great thought leaders. On this, the last day of 2009, I’d like to share some of the quotes I read this morning to get you pumped and ready for 2010.

We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Who we are today is the result of choices we made yesterday. Tomorrow, we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose to change. ~ John Maxwell

I’ve never seen a monument erected to a pessimist. ~ Paul Harvey

We must admit that we spend more of our time concentrating and fretting over the things that can’t be changed than we do giving attention to the one thing we can change: our choice of attitude. ~ Charles Swindoll

Fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. ~ Rick Warren

Faith means believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse. ~ Philip Yancey

Be hopeful! For tomorrow has never happened before. ~ Robert Schuller

I hope your 2010 is NOT all you hope it to be. I pray that it is MORE!
