THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Refuse to be discouraged when stormy clouds come your way,
but trust in tomorrow you’ll find a brighter day.
Refuse to be discouraged when you’re faced with doubts and fears,
but keep on pressing onward for the joy beyond the tears.
Refuse to be discouraged, and in time you’ll understand
that if you keep believing things will work out…. Just as planned
