What you don’t see coming never comes
Don’t behave and act for where you are, behave and act for where you are going

Whatever affects your hope affects your joy

He who serves God can never be ashamed
It doesn’t matter how hard the devil tries, if he cannot take your eyes off God, he cannot clothe you with shame. Selah!
- Never allow your hope to be lost irrespective of whatever was lost (Job 14:14; Ruth 1:16-17)
