We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.”~ Harry Ironside

 In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18


God’s ultimate goal for your life on earth is not comfort, but character development. He wants you to grow up spiritually and become like Christ. Becoming like Christ does not mean losing your personality or becoming a mindless clone. God created your uniqueness, so he certainly doesn’t want to destroy it. Christlikeness is all about transforming your character, not your personality.   The Purpose Driven Life


Take on an entirely new life—a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself out in your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you.     Eph. 4:22

attitude change

My Heart – Christ’s home. Christ in you changes have to, to want to.    Joyce Meyer

We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.      Charles R. Swindoll

joy & gratitude

Joy is thankfulness, and when we are joyful, that is the best expression of thanks we can offer the Lord, Who delivers us from sorrow and sin.” Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica

“Gratitude is medicine for a heart devastated by tragedy.  If you can only be thankful for the blue sky, then do so. ”
Richelle E. Goodrich
