Promise of a new Day

It isn’t for the moment that you are stuck that you need courage, but for the log uphill climb back to sanity and faith and security.
—Anne Marrow Linbergh—

It’s not just major challenges that require courage. Even the minor skirmishes with life demand some deep breaths, perhaps hushed prayers, and lots of hope.

We’d glide more easily through every day if we’d accept that struggle is a part of the process of life; that it offers us more opportunities for us to realize our individual potential than any other dimension in life.
Struggles strengthen us, enrich our character, temper our emotions. They enhance our beginnings in untold ways, and yet we plead to be spared them. How ironic that we each long for greater success, at least some recognition for our accomplishments, but recoil from the very experiences that guarantee these personal satisfactions.
My struggles today are gifts in disguise. I will grow accordingly.
