Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Peter

I Peter 5: 6 - 10

6
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you at the proper time,
7
casting all your anxiety upon Him, 
because He cares for you.
 8
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.
Your adversary, the devil, 
prowls about like a roaring lion, 
seeking someone to devour.
9
But resist him firm in your faith, 
knowing that the same experiences of suffering 
are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
10
And after you have suffered for a little while,
the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ,
will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.


A blessed Sunday to you all my friends.
Happyone : )

  3. For those who wonder why we want to have a relationship with God, this ability to cast our anxieties on Him is just one of the many benefits.

  5. Based on the events in Boston this past week, the devil is indeed on the prowl.
