STOP AND THINK – There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events [in life] are blessings given to us to learn from. (Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, 20th century Swiss-American psychiatrist)

Kubler-Ross also says, “Know that everything in this life has purpose.” Many today live as if life was just a series of happenstances. Rather than planning and living life with purpose, they merely react to the current circumstances, hoping for the best. What will be will be, they think. How much more exciting and fulfilling it is to pursue life with purpose.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me. (Philippians 3:13-14)
