Nothing great has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe something inside them was superior to circumstances. (Bruce Barton, late American congressman)

How many times have you been overcome by the difficult circumstances of life? They cover you like a mattress, leaving you little breathing room and greatly restricted mobility. Like a mattress, if you are on top, however, circumstances can be used to good benefit. Don’t let the environment and the difficulties of life keep you from exercising your determination to move on.

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:7)
