By    |   Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 01:45 PM

Pastor Joel Osteen is one of the most popular preachers in America today and is known for delivering powerful sermons. When it comes to life itself, Osteen says it is a gift from God and we should be thankful for our lives, everyday.

Here are 10 of his most memorable quotes on life:

1. Osteen tells the Huffpost Live that we should thank God for life and not always ask for more. "I don't think you should spend your life praying for things, but I do believe you should thank God for what He's given you."

2.
"To live your best life now, you must learn to trust God's timing, you may not think He's working, but you can be sure that right now, behind the scenes, God is arranging all the pieces to come together to work out His plan for your life."

3. You won't be rewarded by God if you spend life upset at others, advises Osteen. "You can live your life angry, bitter, mad at somebody or even guilty, not letting go of your own mistakes, but you won't receive the good things God has in store."

4. Life is about honoring God, Osteen tells Larry King in a TV interview. "The main rule to me is to honor God with your life. To live a life of integrity. Not be selfish. You know, help others. But that's really the essence of the Christian faith."

5. In his top-selling book, "Become a Better You," Osteen notes that relationships are the key to life. "Friend, there's no greater investment in life than in being a people builder. Relationships are more important than our accomplishments."

6. God's blessings will lead us through life, Osteen advises in an interview with Vanity Fair. "I don't believe that we're supposed to drag ourselves through life defeated and not see God's blessings. But you have to make the right choices and follow that still, small voice within you. Because I think that's how God leads us."

7. By blessing your life you'll have more confidence, Osteen writes on his website. "Speak blessings over your life and as you do you'll go out with more confidence, you'll be more congenial and in turn you will attract more friends."

8. "Living your best life now means being excited about the life God has given you. It means believing for more good things in the days ahead while living in the moment and enjoying it to the hilt."

9. "God wants you to have a good life, a life filled with love, joy, peace, and fulfillment. That doesn't mean it will always be easy, but it does mean that it will always be good."

10. "If you want to truly enjoy your life, you must be at peace with yourself."
