"God doesn’t care what you’re not. He cares who you are. You are His, you come from the Master, and when He adds His extra to your ordinary and His super to your natural, nothing is impossible for you." ~ Joel Osteen

When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.

~ Joel Osteen

Giving a smile and saying a cheerful word to some-one actually picks us up...

how much more would an act of kindness or a small gift?  

"God gives us hopes and dreams for certain things to happen in our lives, but He doesn't always allow us to see the exact timing of His plan." ~ Joyce Meyer

If you want to have sustained joy, you have to not only make sure that you think right but you also have to make decisions now that are going to guarantee some joy in the future and maintain healthy attitudes. ~ Joyce Meyer

Another thing I remind myself is that God knows what's Best for me.~ Joel Osteen

Somethings do not always turn out the way we expected them to.    

God is the author and finisher of our faith, but He’s not obligated to finish what He didn’t author.

Learn how to enjoy where you are on the way to where you're going.


Joyce does small acts of kindness when she's out and about in her daily life. She figures that anything she preaches

she should put into practice herself. She shows you how to line up your attitudes in a way that helps you to win in life

and believes that if healthy emotions have helped her, they will help anyone. Joyce had an upbringing that was anything but easy__ and she has wholeness now that she likes to pass on to others.

Joel is about the most grace giving un-judgmental person I have had the privilege of knowing in a lifetime - through his preaching and conversations on-line. He has had the privilege of growing up in a positive happy family in Jesus and has a contagious bright outlook of his own. He loves to take those things that have blessed him and share them with everyone__ especially those who may not have had such a good start in life.

Both Joyce and Joel in their special way will help you to feel good about yourself and God.
