[I]t might be a little higher than 92%, but I didn’t want to brag. And I am not afraid at all for you to talk to any of my friends and family to find out if I am telling the truth.
It’s said that happiness is based on circumstances, while joy is based in the Holy Spirit. Joy is NOT determined by circumstances. We can all have it regardless of our situation.

You’ve done your best, tried your hardest and at times received complete rejection, right? No every time, but occasionally, right?
That’s because everyone does not care about their life counting and they don’t care about yours either.
Don’t let that discourage you. Don’t let it make you bitter as it does so many. Instead, accept it and continue to serve.
Serving and sharing should never be measured by the return. It’s measured only by the selflessness by which we give. And then, regardless of others, your life will count.
