Do you see the glass as half empty or half full? Do you brace yourself for the next calamity, or do you prepare yourself for the next blessing? Your attitude is critical for what occurs in your life. Joshua told the Israelites, “Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you” (Joshua 3:5). Consider what you would like God to do in your marriage, envision it and prepare yourself for it.
