“When I wake up, I expect things to be good.
If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can
’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway.
So why not try to make the most of it if you can?
Some days, they pan out a little better than others,
but you still gotta always just try.

“80% of people’s problems are about how they feel about themselves.”
“Stop being tormented by everyone else’s reaction to you.”
“Today, Lord, I am going to do my best with Your help and for Your glory.
I realize that there are many different people in the world with a variety of opinions and expectations.
I will concentrate on being a God-pleaser and not a self-pleaser or man-pleaser.
The rest I leave in Your hands, Lord. Grant me favor with You and with men
and continue transforming me into the image of Your dear Son. Thank You Lord.”
“By choosing your thoughts,
… selecting which emotional currents you will release
and which you will reinforce,
you determine the quality of your Light
(You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and
the nature of the experiences of your life.).”
“I am so blessed. I’ve been way over-blessed.
At 64 years old, I look forward to going to bed
every night so I can wake up in the morning
and see what blessing is going to come my way
that day. Because you never, ever know what
God’s got in store for you.”
