The mind of sinful man is death, but
the mind controlled by the Spirit is life
and peace.
Romans 8:6

 A POWERFUL STEP TOWARD LIVING at your full potential is to discover the power of your thoughts and words. Many people are not reaching their full potential because their thinking patterns are defective. You cannot think negative thoughts and expect to live a positive life. You can't think thoughts of failure and expect to succeed.

You've got to quit dwelling on the negative. Don't magnify your problems. Magnify your God. The bigger we make God, the smaller our problems become. Quit dwelling on what's wrong in you life, and start dwelling on what's right in your life. Learn to focus on your possibilities, on what you can do, on your potential. Then go out each day expecting good things. Friend, if you are going to live your best life now, you must learn how to control your thought life.

(From Joel Osteen's Your Best Life Begins Each Morning--Devotions to Start Every Day of the Year)

This is true. I know it and yet at times fail. Oh how satan loves to take away our joy. There is so much to be happy about in life.
"Be still and know that I am God."
He is, and we are in His hand...
