Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
No matter how grim your world is, if you can read about the accomplishments of others, you can create the beliefs that will allow you to succeed. Chose to see yourself in a more positive light Anyone can create and find role models to become their beacons of possibility. Even though they understand the realities of the day.
Today we have rich examples of possibility and part of the purpose of the holy bible is to remind us of this immutable fact.
