Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it! (Zig Ziglar, late motivational speaker and writer)
We often have very little control over what happens to us. We didn’t choose our birthplace, our parents, or our nationality, but those are factors that we must live with. We can be resentful about those issues and wish they were different, but that’s a waste of time and effort. We must look at such things realistically and determine to make the best of them.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23:6).
