“My soul is exceedingly perplexed right now! What shall I say, ‘Father! Rescue me out of the clutches of this hour!’ No! This hour is the very culmination of my destiny!”
— John 12:27
Great triumphs are often born out of great pain. Embrace your circumstances, however difficult they may be. Though you feel like dying, hold onto life with everything you’ve got. Live just a little bit more. Live one day at a time (and if that would seem to be too much, then make it one moment at a time.)
There is a plan at work, and you have a part to play in it, but your success in the great drama of life depends in part upon your outlook.
Choose to see beauty instead of the flaws. Choose to see potential, though your natural mind may seem to see only impending catastrophe. Let your hope and your belief be so strong that they burn right through the doubts and fears.
