For the JOY set before you...

YOU and those around you will benefit from the effort.
It takes denying yourself the luxury of entertaining destructive thoughts, and replacing them with God thoughts......Jesus the author of our faith, looked for the joy in the middle of His cross.

Jesus the original positive thinker.~love jackie
