“Everything you do,
every thought you have,
every word you say
creates a memory
that you will hold
in your body.
It’s imprinted on you
and affects you in subtle ways –
ways you are not always aware of.
With that in mind,
be very conscious and selective.”

“The purpose of God’s blessing is to enable you to be a great channel of blessing to others.
If you have nothing, there is nothing you can do for anyone else;

When you are blessed, you have a mighty foundation
from which to impact others. You are blessed to be a blessing.”
~ Brian Houston,
