“Create a trophy room in your heart.”

A thought by Max Lucado (2015-09-15) from his book, Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now (p. 64). Thomas Nelson. Kindle Edition. (Click on the title to go to Amazon.com to buy the book.)
Max continues, “Each time you experience a victory, place a memory on the shelf. Before you face a challenge, take a quick tour of God’s accomplishments. Look at all the paychecks he has provided, all the blessings he has given, all the prayers he has answered. Imitate the shepherd boy David.

She was sounding like her mother. ‘If he has helped you fifteen different times, don’t you think he will help you this time?’”
Very, very good advice for you and me today, don’t you think?
I don’t know what you are going through today but I …
