Thought for the day:

“I’m such an optimist I’d go after Moby Dick in a rowboat and take the tartar sauce with me.” –Zig Zigler

God’s Word for the day:

Therefore, since we are surrounded by a such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and protector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning it’s shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will nor grow weary and lose heart.  (Hebrews 12:1-3)
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.  Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.  (Hebrews 12:11)

Fanny Crosby’s most loved and widely known hymn is optimistic, too!

Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His spirit, washed in His blood.

Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blessed,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

–Pastor John
