MEDITATE ON THE THINGS OF GOD   by Joyce Meyer

If you don’t want to be devastated by discouragement, then don’t meditate on your disappointments.

We can allow our thoughts to dwell on the bad things until we become totally discouraged and devastated, or we can focus our attention on all the good things that have happened to us in our life–and on all the blessings that God still has in store for us in the days ahead.
