Trials, temptations, disappointments

 "Trials, temptations, disappointments – all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fibre of a character, but strengthen it. Every conquered temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before." - James Buckham

Come what may, let us persevere. Cling to God, surround yourself with good counsel and friends who care not only for your material good, but your spiritual good.  Dance, sing and play.  Listen to music and sing in your car with the window down.  Trials, temptations, disappointments will come, don't be surprised, rather be prepared like a warrior for battle.  Be not afraid, you are not alone!
