STOP AND THINK – Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way. (Isak Dinesen, pen name of Karen Blixen, Danish author)

Dinesen continued, “So many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.” When we face “difficult times,” instead of worrying about what we may not be able to control, we would do better to think again about all the good things life is offering us. Most of us are better off than we deserve; so let’s thank God and trust Him in the hard times.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
