Life is a battle in which we fall from wounds we receive in running away. —William L. Sullivan—

Our experience in this life is a composite of many lessons—lessons which will ease our personal growth and offer us the opportunities necessary

to encourage our unique contributions. Clearly, not all lessons are easy or pleasurable when we first encounter them, but their rewards are great if

we choose to learn from them, and we can be certain that no lesson is without its reward. Those things we need to experience, to learn, to

understand, will present themselves again and again until we have attended to them. We may choose to close our minds one time, and even close them again, but the lesson will not be put off for long. Another experience will surround us, offering once again the opportunity necessary for the personal growth we’re destined to realize. We must trust that our lives are unfolding in ways that will evoke our full potential, and that no challenge comes that earlier lessons haven’t prepared us for.

Tackling my lessons head-on is a decision I can make today.

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
