Turn That Negative Into A Positive “It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes.” Psalm 119:71, NKJV I have been convinced for a long time that problems come into our life for a purpose and that God can take anything negative in our life and turn it into a positive.

You’re Not Alone “But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me…..” 2 Timothy 4:17, NKJV One of the loneliest times we can have is when we face a time of need without having a friend to talk to about it with. Everyone needs at least one trusted friend in whom they can confide. One of our great old hymns is entitled; “I Must Tell Jesus”. We can always tell Jesus.
