Walk down the street and observe how many people you see that are happy and or smiling. You won't find too many. The Lord has said that all people are responsible for their own motives, attitudes, desires, and actions. Thoughts are ideas, concepts, and images in a person’s mind. The power to think is a gift from God, and we are free to choose how we use our power to think. The way we think greatly affects attitudes and behavior, as well as our standing after this life. Therefore you can have a pretty good idea of what kind of thoughts a person allows into their mind by observing their outward countenance. It is amazing to me how accurate this is. So much hinges on our thoughts and attitude. Make those two things positive and light will flood other aspects of your life! All of this is possible only because of Jesus Christ. Let us use it for good. "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."-Winston Churchill

20I say unto you, my brethren, that if you should render all the athanks and bpraise which your whole soul has power to possess, to that God who has created you, and has kept and cpreserved you, and has caused that ye should drejoice, and has granted that ye should live in peace one with another—
21I say unto you that if ye should aserve him who has created you from the beginning, and is bpreserving you from day to day, by lending you cbreath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own dwill, and even supporting you from one moment to another—I say, if ye should serve him with all your ewhole souls yet ye would be funprofitable servants.
22And behold, all that he arequires of you is to bkeep his commandments; and he has cpromised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth dvary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do ekeep his fcommandments he doth bless you and prosper you.
