May 9 Quote of the Day

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.
Calvin Coolidge

 

Worry about the future will only give you ulcers.

You can’t possibly avoid every single problem that life will throw at you. I am reminded of the ‘Temors’ movie where the survivalist, Bert, bemoans the fact that he had prepared for nuclear war, World War III,anything catastrophic that he could think of but he hadn’t prepared for underground monsters. Those he just had to find a way to defeat with what he had available. And he did with the help of his friends. You, too, should prepare the best you can but don’t worry that you can’t prepare for everything. If life throws something at you that you aren’t ready for, improvise! Don’t worry about all those troubles you can see.  Most of them will be gone before they get to you anyway.

1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

Father, we thank You that You care for us. Each day new trials and anxieties come to us. Sometimes they are easily set aside but often they remain a heavy weight for us. We lift our concerns up to You and ask that You take them. Carry them for us. Give us wisdom to deal with each new day and each new situation in a manner that would bring glory to you and peace to ourselves and our families.
