Inspirational Thoughts from Jesus
Matthew 5:3-12 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who suffer persecution for living righteously, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for likewise they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Matthew 5:13-16 You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how could it become salty again? It would be good for nothing, but to be thrown outside and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world: a city that is set on a mountain cannot be hidden; neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a lampstand; and it gives light to everyone in the house. Likewise, let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
John 8:36 If the Son sets you free, you will surely be free!
John 14:1-4 Do not let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. There are many rooms in My Father’s house. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that you may be where I am. And where I go you know, and the way you know.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to Me, all you who are weary and weighed down with heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in spirit. Indeed, you will surely find rest in Me! My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I am standing at the door knocking: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with Me.

Isaiah 40:28-31 Have you not known or heard that Yahweh, the everlasting God and Creator of all the earth, does not faint or ever become weary? Indeed, His understanding is inexhaustible! He gives strength to the weak, and power to those who have no might. Even the youth will faint and be weary, and utterly fail; but those who wait on Yahweh will receive new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run, and not become weary, they will walk, and not faint!
Isaiah 55:6–11 Seek Yahweh while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; may he return to Yahweh, who is merciful, and He will abundantly pardon him. ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ says Yahweh. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return, watering the earth and making it bring forth and bud—to give seed to the sower and bread to the hungry, so also will My word go forth from My mouth; it will not return to me void, but will accomplish what I please, and prosper in whatever I send it to do.’
Isaiah 51:11 Therefore, the redeemed of Yahweh will return; they will come to Zion with songs of praise. A crown of everlasting joy will rest on their heads, filling their lives gladness. They will rejoice as sorrow and mourning flee from their presence!

Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw new heavens and a new earth, for the first ones had passed away; and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, that is, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And then I heard a great voice from heaven, which said, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them, and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither will there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away.
