"A small trouble is like a pebble.
Hold it too close to your eye and it fills the whole world and puts everything out of focus.
Hold it at a proper distance and it can be examined and properly classified.
Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true setting, just one more tiny bump on the pathway of life."
- Celia Luce
"Nobody will make a lock without a key.
Similarly God will not give problems without solutions.
If a problem can be solved, then there is no need to worry about it.
If a problem can not be solved, what is the point in worrying about it?"
- Author unknown
"Faith is not a guarantee against trouble, but to defeat."
- Corrie ten Boom
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
By Your mercy, God we are entrusted with the service of proclamation why we never lose heart. No, we give not up hope. Although we also have the outward man perish, our inner life renews itself day by day, and here we can count on because we believe in Your Word and the Gospels being assured that we will be able to harvest on time.
Jehovah, You are the one who gives strength to the weary again, and the indigent an abundance of power. We, who rely on you, renew our strength and mount up with wings as eagles; we will be able to walk and not become tired, run and not become depleted. For this we plan with the new man on his way to true understanding, innovating after the image of its creator.
