Don’t be victimized; be victorious. Don’t just receive; give. Don’t be easily influenced; be an influencer. Yes, the reversal can be a process, but it’s largely a matter of perspective, and perspectives can be chosen. The laws of the Spirit now work in your favor. Choose to take full advantage of them. <BR> <BR> Have a great Wednesday. Bless you. Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:52:52 EST Tuesday... Having a lovely day. Nice and peaceful. Yea!
