Problems II

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. (Aldous Huxley, 20th century English writer)

Like the proverbial ostrich with its head in the sand, we sometimes find it easier to ignore a problem and act as if it doesn’t exist than to face it head-on. We have all found that Huxley’s comment is right on. As much as we wish it weren’t there, the problem keeps surfacing, and we have to do something about it. Identify and acknowledge the issue. Face it squarely and bravely.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up. (Isaiah 43:2)
