AYRI- 30 Quotes to Take into my 30’s

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own];… Jeremiah 1:5 (AMP)

A new decade begins and I’m excited to see what God has in store for me for year 30 and beyond. I thought a lot about how I would commemorate my 30th on AYRI and eventually decided on sharing 30 of my favourite inspirational quotes. My prayer is that you discover some that you can incorporate in your life and be encouraged as you seek to pursue all that God has purposed for you.
