If you believe that you are one with God, that you co-create whatever comes into your life, and that everything happens for a reason, then it follows that hardships are nothing more than course corrections on your spiritual path.
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.
If you could but look through God’s eyes, you would see God’s fingerprints everywhere and glimpse the beauty and perfection inherent in every trial and tribulation.
We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking, only to learn that it is God who is shaking them.
Charles C. West
Knowing you will be presented only with obstacles you are capable of handling is immeasurably comforting.
I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.
You may feel overwhelmed at the time, but everything in your life has led you to that moment, has prepared you for the challenge at hand.
Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.
Hold on to even a fragment of faith and a sliver of hope, and despair can only nip at your heels.
There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle.
