“Keep your head up and think of 3 things that makes you smile. If you focus your energy on the good things then your day will manifest into great day.”
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.~ Philippians 4:8
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6
Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” John 13:7
The new year has begun. It’s time to set new goals, dream bigger, explore new experiences that will push you into the great person you are meant to be. It’s time to release the fears, step out on faith and strengthen the gifts you have. It is the time to be intentional of being sincere of others and remove the selfish ways that may block your blessings. Unclutter the thoughts of “I can’t” and get it done in 2021.
