I read this online and thought I’d share it with you all… I know not everyone is religious (irrespective of whatever religion), so I did excerpts of what the original website said (website at the bottom), barr point #4, the others have been slightly altered without losing the ultimate meaning (I think):
1. Remember that your Character should always be stronger than your Circumstances.
We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we choose to respond. In those moments when I choose to stop complaining and instead give thanks for the good in my life, the parts that seem bad start to seem much less significant. Choose to keep a positive attitude and thankful heart regardless of what you’re going through.
2. Remember that your Struggles always lead to Strength.
Every difficulty in your life, whether big or small, is something to produce more strength, faith and perseverance in you! All your pain has a purpose.
3. Remember that timing is always perfect.
Have the patience to wait instead of forcing your own.
4. Remember that God will never leave your side.
You may feel like you’re going through this struggle all alone, but He will be by your side to the end so never lose hope!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
