T.D. Jakes
“a setback is a setup for a comeback”
T.D. Jakes
“Each day is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to Him.”
T.D. Jakes, Maximize the Moment: God's Action Plan For Your Life
“Its not over, until the Lord says its over.”
T.D. Jakes
“If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”
T.D. Jakes
“As we forge deeper into this issue of forgiveness, we must be prepared to open up and discuss things that bother us before they escalate to a crisis level. We must examine our struggles with forgiveness in which there are not overt offenses or blatant betrayals. I'm convinced that seeds of resentment take root in the silent frustrations that never get discussed. Other people cannot read our minds--or our palms!--and that is why we have tongues to speak.”
T.D. Jakes
“Never make a permanent decision about a temporary situation.”
T.D. Jakes
“Blame unto others only as you would first blame yourself.”
T.D. Jakes
“We are the people that we have been waiting for and no one else is coming.”
T.D. Jakes
“When God has a plan for your life, I don’t care how much you murmur and complain and kick and fuss and scream and yell. When you know that God has a plan for your life, He got you tied up… I serve a God who will tie you up when you’re acting crazy, tie you up, while you’re trying to do your own thing, tie you up while your temper is raging, tie you up, when your ambition is out of control. Sometimes, God will tie you up til the time is right. Nothing will work, your money won’t work, your career won’t work, the boyfriend will leave, the house will sell, cause when God has you tied up, He’s not gonna let you get away. He’ll say, Be still and see the salvation of the Lord.”
T.D. Jakes
“Unforgiveness denies the victim the possibility of parole and leaves them stuck in the prison of what was, incarcerating them in their trauma and relinquishing the chance to escape beyond the pain.”
T.D. Jakes
“Silence isn't golden and it surely doesn't mean consent, so start practicing the art of communication.”
T.D. Jakes, Let it Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven
“God has invested entirely too much in you for you to be comfortable in anything less than you were created to be.”
T.D. Jakes
“To those of us who often procrastinate on the decision we feel intimidated by lack of education or any area of weakness. I relieve you with this statement: It is not how much you know that arms you with the tools of great decision making, but rather how much you ask. Ask questions.”
T.D. Jakes, Making Great Decisions Reflections: For A Life Without Limits
“Let It Go!!”
T.D. Jakes
“I may be, tied up, but at least, I am HIS. I may be hurting, But I am HIS, I may be reluctant, but I am HIS, I may be lonely, but I am HIS, I may be frustrated, but I am HIS, That’s why I am praising Him, because I’m glad He tied me up. He stopped me from doing the things I would have done, that would’ve messed up myself. When I look at how my friends got loosed, I thank Him for tying me up. When I look at how the neighborhood boys are locked up in jail, I thank Him for tying me up. I am not happy about it then, but I’m glad about it now. When I think about the person I almost married, When I think about the job I almost got, When I think about the people who wouldn’t let me join their clique, When I think about the people who stops talking to me, I thank Him for tying me up. I thank Him for the rope that got me tied up.”
T.D. Jakes
“You cannot be a Big person with a Small heart”
T.D. Jakes
“To be unforgiving is like to drink poison and wait for someone else to die!!

Rev. TD Jakes (have I said how much I love ya!)”

T.D. Jakes, The Lady, Her Lover, and Her Lord
“The brilliance of morning is in sharp contrast with the darkness of night" - Woman thou art loosed”
T.D. Jakes, Woman, Thou Art Loosed! the Novel
“What woman would not appreciate a God who becomes her attorney, assumes her case, requires no fee, and wins her the victory?”
T.D. Jakes, The Lady, Her Lover, and Her Lord
“A whole woman will always attract a whole man. And when they touch, they will fuse to create a whole marriage. Ultimately, when the time is right, they will produce whole children.”
T.D. Jakes
“You’d be surprised at the things that look great on the outside but are dysfunctional on the inside. Be sure to function as good as you look”
T.D. Jakes
“Some young ladies are so starved for male approval that what should be a normal attraction to men is accelerated into an obsessive need for male affirmation. Tragically, these dear ladies allow themselves to be devoured in the arms of men who have neither regard not respect for them as people.”
T.D. Jakes
“When you don’t become fixated on winning the prize or appearing successful, and instead pursue your passions, then you will discover the fulfillment that comes from living by instinct.”
T.D. Jakes, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive
“My mother would take the Band-Aid off, clean the wound, and say, “Things that are covered don’t heal well.” Mother was right. Things that are covered do not heal well.”
T.D. Jakes, Healing the Wounds of the Past
“Much like the removal of moles and skin lesions is done to prevent them from growing into more serious skin abnormalities, removing minor discord before it becomes a calamity is an important use of our time. Most people don’t like to make waves and they swallow frustration and bury true feelings, not wanting to compromise temporary tranquility, never realizing that massive turmoil doesn’t start out massive—it grows beneath the skin like a cancer that could have been avoided with early detection.”
T.D. Jakes, Let It Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven
“When you begin to realize that your past does not necessarily dictate the outcome of your future, then you can release the hurt. It is impossible to inhale new air until you exhale the old.”
T.D. Jakes, Healing the Wounds of the Past
“Sometimes what makes us insecure and vulnerable becomes the fuel we need to be overachievers. The antidote for a snakebite is made from the poison, and the thing that made you go backward is the same force that will push you forward.”
