Great Christian Quotes to Encourage You to Do Something

It is so very easy to become discouraged as we walk through life. One of the easiest ways to do this is when we are doing nothing. When we have no real goals in life we lack direction and this is when we get lost and do not know our purpose in life. Here are some Christian quotes that I pray encourage you to do something.

Quotes from Famous Christians

You Can Do it

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” ~ Helen Keller

Behave in Love

“Do not waste time bothering whether you ‘love’ your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him.” ~ C.S. Lewis

Keep Moving Forward

“If you can’t fly, then run, If you can’t run, then walk, If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Cry Out to God

“The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, ‘O God, forgive me,’ or ‘Help me.’” ~ Rev. Billy Graham

Use Circumstances Wisely

“God has a purpose behind every problem. He uses circumstances to develop our character. In fact, he depends more on circumstances to make us like Jesus than he depends on our reading the Bible.” ~ Pastor Rick Warren

Long for God

“I’ve often thought, I’m nobody. Why would God answer my prayer? But God’s not impressed by eloquence; he’s impressed by our longing for him.” ~ Stormie Omartian

Song Lyrics About Doing Something

“I’m so tired of talking about
How we are God’s hands and feet
But it’s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It’s alright, ‘somebody else will do something’
Well, I don’t know about you
But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don’t want a flame, I want a fire and
I wanna be the one who stands up and says
‘I’m gonna do something’ ~ Matthew West, Do Something

“When you don’t move the mountains
I’m needing you to move
When you don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When you don’t give the answers
As I cry out to you
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in you” ~ Lauren Daigle, Trust In You

But is blessed if we trust and obey.” ~ John H. Sammis, Trust and Obey

“I will sing, yes, I will praise, even in my darkest hour
Through the sorrow and the pain
I will sing, I will praise, lift my hands to honor You
Because Your word is true, I will sing” ~ Don Moen, I Will Sing

The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore” ~ Matt Redman, 10,000 Reasons

When I’m sinking like a stone
And if feels like I’m alone
I will worship You” ~ Paul Baloche, I Will Worship You

“Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We’ll sing and shout the victory.” ~ Eliza E. Hewitt, When We All Get to Heaven

“I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait
I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience
While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait”.~John Waller, While I’m Waiting
