We all know life happens, but we are confident that God will gives us the grace to recover but it starts with our thoughts. Start thing positive thoughts. Here is what the Apostle Paul says "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things (Philippians 4:8)."
