Have you made the most important decision of your life? Where will you spend Eternity? To make heaven is as simple as ABC- Accept you are a sinner, Believe that Jesus died for your sin and Confess HE is Lord.

"The Victor"

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will.
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.

By C. W. Longenecker

The way you think would affect your life hugely - either positive or negative. Start thinking positive thoughts today!


  1. It's so true! I really think it's this positive attitude that led to Nigerians being rated as the happiest people on earth!

    Personally, I know I always feel better when I'm being positive but every now and then I fall into negative thoughts and all it does is make me feel miserable!
