To be alive is a special gift from God. There is always the opportunity to outdo your negative past and start anew with the gift of life that the creator has blessed us with. Live everyday in praise and thanksgiving for what you've achieved and the greater things that lies ahead.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer, supplication and thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, will keep your hearts and mind in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6
