Inspirational quote made into memes and though some are copyrighted, they are free to use as long as they are unaltered.
The inspiring and motivational poem “Invictus” written by William Earnest Henley is a poem for the ages. It is so ably applicable to anyone who suffers indignity, injustice, invisible illness or pain.
When we are suffering inside from any type of illness that is not obviously apparent we suffer alone and usually in silence. Let this verse inspire you and help you realize that through our God we can have an unconquerable soul that through the grace of God we are indeed the captain of our fate and the captain of our soul. It matters not what others think it only matters that our God blesses us with an unconquerable soul and blesses us with the strength to be the captain of out destiny.
I dedicate this poem to all my fibro friends and all those who suffer Fibromyalgia and other invisible illnesses.
By William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
In spite of the fibro that covers me which is as despairing and black as a pit. I thank my God! For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have winched and I have cried out loud, but I have not given up. My head is bloodied from the circumstance of my illness that I didn’t ask for, but for which I suffer. Beyond this pain and burden are more wrath and ache.
But in spite my suffering through all the years to follow they shall find me unafraid. It matters not the pain or angst or how powerful the fear, because I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.
What speaks to me from this poem are three lines in particular: 1. For my unconquerable soul, 2. I am the master of my fate, and 3. I am the captain of my soul. What part of this poem speaks to you. Is this an encouraging poem to you?

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
Following Jesus Christ will bring peace into our lives. There are many places in our lives where we need peace. Try as we may, we cannot always acquire peace on our own. Faith in The Master will bring peace into every aspect of our life. The world will give us tribulations and tribulations take peace away. But Jesus has overcome the world so that among other things, we can have peace where the world would tell us otherwise.
Even in tribulations we can have peace equal to our faith in Jesus Christ.
Success is the ability to get inside your mind and stay there until you have figured something out, came up with a solution or just had a respite from the grind. Don’t be afraid of your mind. He who is afraid of his mind will not achieve success. (Callahan)
Government may try to control me. Temptations may try to enslave me. Persecutions may try to stop me. But I am the master of my destiny. It matters not what others do to me, say about me or feel about me. For with my mind I am my destiny. (Callahan)
Success is what you define it to be. Know what success you want or you’ll just be spinning your wheels. (Callahan)
Some of the greatest inventions and discoveries were made possible by mans ability to harness power and disperse it in a way that made great things happen. If you can learn to harness the vast energy and power of your mind and all the thoughts therein you can disperse that great power and you to can conceive and achieve great things. You can change the course of your life. There are yet many things to discover, many things yet to be done, many things to teach. As much as mankind has achieved there remains much more to do and you could be in the middle of it all. (Callahan)
Learn from the memories. Respect the past. Live in harmony for today. Be happy with what you have. Go forward into the unknown future with faith, hope and love. (Callahan)
