Helplessly Quotes

I hope you like these inspirational quotes about Helplessly.

and then accept whatever Spirit provides,
we live a life of purpose and joy.

We've got some difficult days ahead.

I would like to live a long life.

And I've seen the promised land.
I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight, that we,
as a people, will get to the promised land.
