Our decisions determine destiny

You are the sum total of every decision you have ever made - good, bad or indifferent. Neither God nor the devil can be blamed for where you are in life. You are where you are and have what you have because of your decisions.

Let the Lord lead you to thankful life

Psalm 100 is the song of a thankful heart, a command to worship and serve this God, who made us by entering into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. These praises unto God must be sung from our lips and from the depths of our souls. We must praise the Lord in the place recognized by the world as His court and also within the gates of our secret lives. If there is no praise for our God, then surely our song will not be accepted.
