Be Lighthearted in Times of Distress

June 5, 2017 pwm1

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

Paine, Thomas

—Thomas Paine

God is constantly testing us.  That is why we are on this short journey of life—consider earth a proving ground.  The way we act, especially when the going gets tough, judges our character; and the tough times can also be our greatest times of personal and spiritual growth.  As you face the continual challenges of life, identify them for what they are: wonderful opportunities to grow closer to God.
