“You may have heard it said that attitude determines altitude, and it’s true. A positive attitude of faith will help you rise higher in life but a negative attitude will hold you back. Attitude is a choice. We can choose to focus on what is right in life or what is wrong. When you feel down, don’t let your thoughts push you around instead push your thoughts around. Rearrange your thinking so it lines up with what God says about you. Put on a new perspective and set yourself up for blessing and increase! What are you thankful for today?” -@VictoriaOsteen #LakewoodChurch
