Chapter 5, Page 18, Book 16

Another day is dawning
Another day's begun
Another day to turn to God
And pray, Thy will be done

A day to slay doubt's dragon,
To know within your soul
That as you give yourself to Him
He'll bless and make you whole.

A day to live with purpose
A day to show you care
When others turn to you distraught
Confused or in despair

A day to share God's blessings
In quiet countless ways
That touch the heart with hope and joy
And brighten cloudy days

A day for sweet rejoicing
For gratitude and praise
Because His love enfolds you
Both now, and all your days.

May 18th - no doubt about it

It is easier to believe than to doubt. 

Everett D. Martin

Since you can choose your own thoughts, when doubt comes, you can learn to recognize it for what it is, say, No, thank you, and keep on believing!  

Like fear, joy, and sadness, doubt is part of human nature, and it needs understanding. Doubt can tower over us, an imposing darkness that makes us afraid to move. Failure and rejection can feed Doubt until it grows into a monster.

When in doubt, don't. 

Saul W. Kellerman

Choosing to slay the dragon of doubt with an attitude of kindness and serving, in action,  will  open up all kinds of wonderful possibilities for you each day. 

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! If you must-but never quit.
Life is queer, with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might of won if he'd stuck it out;
Stick to your task, though the pace seems slows-
You may succeed with one more blow.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you may never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things seem worse that you must not quit. 


Keep believing, don't doubt, just believe!

I like that, when in doubt,don't. It can be easy to get into that doubt mode and wonder if anything would change or if this will happen, etc., but its just as easy to believe that things will happen. We just have to be patient and not doubt.

I like that also! The older I get the more I realize things always work out!

Another hard lesson, but necessary it one is to be truly happy with their life. I have always loved that poem by mr/Ms Anon. They do some very good work.

i needed to hear this this morning. thank you for the pep talk. "It's when things seem worse that you must not quit." Something to remember.
