Spiritual Birthday Quotes

Whether the birthday gal or guy needs to refill their inner spiritual tank or get more in touch with their spiritual side, count on these Top 10 religious birthday quotes to deliver just the right dose of spiritual nourishment.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."
Leonard Cohen

For the birthday boy or girl: Nothing, and nobody, is perfect. Everything and everyone is flawed in some way.

Ironically, it's through imperfection we are forced to shine a nourishing light through the cracks in our foundation on ourselves, our family and our friends.

Imperfection teaches us some harsh (but invaluable) life lessons that bring us closer than ever to our own idea of perfection.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"What you are is God's gift to you. What you become is your gift to God."
- Hans Urs von Balthasar

For the birthday boy or girl: Whatever our spiritual beliefs, we can all agree that life is a precious gift and, on Day 1 of our lives, a clean slate.

The path we take the rest of our days is, of course, up to us, despite the whirlwind of opportunities, obstacles and choices that blindside us.

What we choose to do with our lives should include a perpetual "gift of kindness" that we and the universe can use every day to make the world a better place, one person at a time.

And it doesn't have to be a huge gift — just huge in impact.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Whatever it is that stirs your soul, listen to that. Everything else is just noise."
Nicole Lyons

For the birthday boy or girl: We should all follow our bliss. If we don't, all we will hear is the noise of everybody else's expectations, opinions, fears and desires. This cannot end well.

At best, we may wake up one day living someone else's life. More likely, we'll come down with a serious case of the "spiritual missing outs" and feel deprived and, ultimately, miserable.

When we make the time to listen to ourselves and our own dreams, our heart and soul can only be filled with joy, love, hope and peace. Now that's bliss.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Remember the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you."

For the birthday boy or girl: Our hearts and souls want what they want. Of course, only we ourselves can figure out what our hearts and souls desire and need. 

And when we eventually pinpoint what our hearts and souls crave, we'll discover the not-so-secret door to our very own sanctuary.

This is where all our soul-enriching joy, peace, laughter, hope and love come from. This way, our sense of well-being is only a thought away, empowering us to take our sanctuary anywhere.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears."
Native American Proverb

For the birthday boy or girl: Tears are the eyes of the soul and, if we're patient and diligent, can be the path to enlightenment and, ultimately joy.

Sadness is not bad, nor is it bad to feel sad. It's a God-given gift that serves a very special purpose.

Sadness gives us insight into our emotional selves (our hearts and souls), challenging us to process our feelings, heal ourselves spiritually and come out of it all with renewed faith.

Yes, it takes work but the reward is divine.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Have faith in your journey. Everything had to happen exactly as it did to get you where you’re going next."
Mandy Hale

For the birthday boy or girl: Faith. It means different things to different people. To me, it comes down to trust. I trust the universe to guide me to my next destination, even if the journey has many twists, turns and detours along the way.

Whatever our spiritual beliefs, everybody needs a little faith to see the light or silver lining ahead, particularly in dark times.

On the road to anywhere, faith is the bridge between where we are now and where we should be.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Of all the music that reaches farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart."
Henry Ward Beecher

For the birthday boy or girl: When all else fails, hurts, disappoints, discourages, frustrates or angers us, we should not let our demons take over.

In spite of it all, we should become a part-time angel and love our fellow man and woman to the tune of our own hearts.

There's nothing quite as uplifting as giving the gift of love. Heaven is what happens when there's still a song in our hearts in the midst of hell.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Faith does not make things easy. It makes them possible."
Luke 1:35

For the birthday boy or girl: Faith is the fire that burns inside us, pushing us forward, even when we can't put one foot in front of the other.

Faith is a promise we make to ourselves that blessings are just around the corner, which makes just about everything we want to achieve at least possible.

To harness the power of faith
, we have to reach out of our comfort zones and work at believing that all things — even our sink-or-swim, baptism-by-fire moments — will not only pass but will also end well. And they will, if we have faith.


Religious Birthday Wishes & Quotes - Spiritual Birthday Messages

"Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting."
Elizabeth Bibesco

For the birthday boy or girl: In other words, give of ourselves and don't take credit for it (just forget all about it). That's true charity.

And if someone gives us a gift of kindness, we should express our gratitude, never forget it, and even better, pay it forward without a second thought.


90+ Religious Birthday Wishes to Celebrate Enlightened Souls

"If you doubt, you won't see...If you see, you won't doubt."
Paramahansa Yogananda

For the birthday boy or girl: There are no certainties in this world. Not even death and taxes are certain — both, after all, are still open to interpretation.

So, doubt is warranted, even necessary, if it leads to further investigation and, ultimately, greater knowledge about the world. If, however, it stops us in our tracks on the road to enlightenment, it serves no purpose but to undermine our beliefs.

The first step away from doubt toward belief is to at least entertain the idea that everything requires further insight. Believing is seeing.
