Grin and Bear It

We all have burdens to bear but the Lord gives us strength.

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.   2 Corinthians 12:10

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28

Get Your Bearings

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3:5,6

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  Romans 12:2
