Monday Morning Motivation: Quotes From Books

Welcome to Monday Morning Motivation!

This is a feature where I will be sharing quotes from books that have motivated and encouraged me in one way or another.

I hope you will find some of these quotes inspiring and uplifting.

This week, I’ll be sharing quotes from a book I am currently reading and although I am yet to finish reading this book, it has blessed me tremendously already. I am grateful to God for bringing this book my way because it has caused me to dig deep within my heart and put me on a path I am glad that I am on. I highly recommend this book and I hope you are blessed by it as much as I was. I would be sharing some quotes from this book with you and I hope it gets you thinking and shifting your mind in the right direction.

I wish you a brilliant week ahead!

“There is no simple theological answer to pain; the answer is a relationship with God in the midst of pain. Those who need things in neat little black-and-white packages cannot tolerate such a faith.”
― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do

“If we demand perfection from ourselves we are not living in the real world…The inherent problem in the relationship between the ideal & the real is that the ideal judges the real as unacceptable and brings down condemnation and wrath on the real. This sets up an adversarial relationship between the two and like all adversaries, they move further and further apart.” ― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do

“It is easy to say we love others, but difficult to allow them the freedom inherent in love.” – ― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do

“Freedom comes from taking responsibility; bondage comes from giving it away.” – ― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do

“No real and deep change occurs outside of relationship and trust, for that is the place where the heart lives. People often say, “I know that in my head, not in my heart.” For the heart to know it, the heart must return to the vulnerable place where the rules were first written on it. Through this sort of vulnerability, it can learn new rules.” – ― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do

“If we feel responsible for other people’s feelings, we can no longer make decisions based on what is right; we will make decisions based on how others feel about our choices.” – ― Henry Cloud, Changes That Heal: The Four Shifts That Make Everything Better…And that Anyone Can Do
