When we long for life without difficulties remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.
Teach us O Lord the disciplines of patience for to wait is often harder than to work.
Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please but as the opportunity to do what is right.
Lord where we are wrong make us willing to change where we are right make us easy to live with.
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.
If you hug to yourself any resentment against anybody else you destroy the bridge by which God would come to you.
