“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.

You, Him & Everyone Else

“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.”

~ Joyce Meyer,
