Motivational quote: "In every difficult situation is potential value. Believe this, then begin looking for it." Norman Vincent Peale
Thought #1: He's right. We look for what we expect to find, and often find it. Do you look for God to work in your life? Do you look for God to do amazing things at church?

Prayer: Lord God, let us expect to find You today.
