Every tussle with adversity is designed to further buff the perfectly formed diamond of your soul.
If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?
An athlete elevates his game not by practice alone, but by competing against stronger opponents.
He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.
Embrace your inner David and rise up to meet Goliath. The satisfaction of triumphing over so great an adversary will taste that much sweeter.
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
You may even look forward to finding yourself knee-deep in misfortune just so you can know the joy of overcoming it.
God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly, not one.
