CoT: Positive Perspective – this year has brought a series of negative events for many, which got me thinking about the story of Joseph in the Bible. He was sold into slavery by his own brothers, went to jail after being falsely accused of romance with Potiphar’s wife, was forgotten by the cup bearer and baker in prison, lived through famine, separated from his family…but, he still praised God and testifies in Genesis 50:20 saying what others meant for evil, God used to transform into good. I believe He’s still working that way today, so look for what good might be coming out the other side! …And if you’re sore after the workout today (bad), remember, that means you’re gaining strength (good)! 🙂
