"There's something about a person filled with hope...
The enemy always fights you the hardest when he knows God has something great in store.
When the bottom falls out and it looks like you hit an all-time low... when it just couldn't get any worse... You don't know what God has around the corner. That is not the time to get bitter. That's not the time to get negative. That is the time to put your shoulders back and boldly declare: My time is coming. I am a victor and not a victim."
- It's Your Time, by Joel Osteen, p.23
