Road Blocks

This last Sunday as part of the ‘Dare To Dream’ series at Mavuno, I spoke about how to guard your vision when you face the inevitable opposition. Here are a couple of quotes for any dreamers out there who are facing some road blocks on their journey to purpose!



But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded
(NIV Bible 2Chronicles 15:7)

The price of success is perseverance. The price of failure comes cheaper

You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it
(Margaret Thatcher)

Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. GOD, your God is with you every step you take
(The Message Bible, Joshua 1:9)

Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determination

A diamond is a chunk of coal that made good under pressure
(Classic Crossword Puzzles)

If God is for us, who can be against us?
(NIV Bible, Romans 8:31)

It’s never too late to be what you might have become
(George Elliot)

With all this going on for us, dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time and effort
(The Message Bible, 1Corinthians 15:58)

If you are intent on following God’s dream for your life, dont give up… keep on keeping on!

  1. True that.

    Got one you could add to those, It’s by Myles Monroe, I paraphrase:

    Ordinary people do extraordinary things because circumstances made a demand on their potential.

    Thanks for the quotes.

  2. To our ordinary passie:-) doing SUPER extraordinary stuff! Yaani God bless you sana! You have no idea the transformation that is happening to the ordinary Mavunite under your leadership! I pray that God will continue to fill your cup. Mob blessings to you!

  3. Thanks @ ukwelii and kisa.

    Here’s another quote I found about Nehemiah that I think is rather cool…

    There has always been a true elite of God’s leaders. They are the meek who inherit the earth (Mat.5:5). They weep and pray in secret, and defy earth and hell in public. They tremble when faced with danger, but die in their tracks sooner than turn back. They are like a shepherd defending his sheep or a mother protecting her young. They sacrifice without grumbling, give without calculating, suffer without groaning. [They live to see those under their charge succeed] They are the salt of the earth. And Nehemiah was one of them.

    From Excellence in Leadership by John White

  4. great quotes. i love this one by Andy Andrews

    “How long must a child try to walk before he actually does so? Do I not have more strength than a child? More understanding? More desire? How long must I work to succeed before I actually do so? A child would never ask that question, for the answer does not matter. By persisting without exception, my outcome-my success-is assured. I will persist without exception. I focus on results.”

  5. whoa! big God bless you to you Pastor M. You have brought life into the lives of many by allowing to be used by God. nutcase that was extremely powerful on persistence.

    I do believe at mavuno our quest for greatness will not be for the pleasure of many but as you say passie ‘in the end, we win’ because he won at the cross

  6. Wow…I was about to Give up on Something in My Life……i have been asking GOD to Speak…and i think this is what i needed….Will keep on Pressing on..
