Most polyphenols work as antioxidants in the body, meaning they can combat environmental harm such as radiation, UV damage, and pollution.

many years after being sold into slavery by his brothers and held in an Egyptian prison, Joseph was put in charge over all the affairs of Egypt. When his brothers showed up at the palace looking to purchase food during the famine, you would think Joseph would be bitter and vindictive. But it says he remembered the dreams of promise God had shown him about them as a young man—not the betrayal, the hurts, the injustices. God had used all the difficulties to get him to where he was supposed to be.
When God gives you a dream, when He puts a promise in your heart, it doesn’t mean it’s going to come to pass without opposition, delays, and adversities. There will be things you don’t understand.

Let God fight your battles. The palace is coming.
