I believe that when you think of the negative, and you get up discouraged – ‘There’s nothing good in my future’ – I really believe it almost ties the hands of God. God works where there’s an attitude of faith. I believe faith is all about hope.
I’m not looking to exclude people, I’m looking to include them.
You may have made a lot of wrong choices, but you’ve also made a lot of choices that were right. Focus on your good qualities. Focus on your victories. Get off the treadmill of guilt.
You cannot wait until everything becomes better before you decide to have a good attitude. You have to be the best you can be right where you are.
I DECLARE God is going before me making crooked places straight. He has already lined up the right people, the right opportunities and solutions to problems I haven’t had. No person, no sickness, no disappointment, can stop His plan. What he promised will come to pass.
If you cannot get along with yourself, you’ll never be able to get along with other people.
When you are grateful, that allows God to do great things in your life.
It seems like when I was growing up there was more compromise, wanting to work with each other, and I think all of them – all of the lawmakers – have hearts to do what’s right, and they all are passionate about it.
I don’t think it’s that hard [to lead a Christian life]. To me it’s fun. We have joy and happiness.
Nobody owes me anything. I am not at a disadvantage. I am equipped, empowered, and anointed.
I want get across to not just the church world. I want to get outside those walls to everyday people.
The moment you speak something out, you give birth to it. This is a spiritual principle, and it works whether what you are saying is good or bad, positive or negative.
