FACE THE WIND

Activated - - NEWS -

If a bird is fly­ing for plea­sure, it flies with the wind, but if it meets dan­ger, it turns and faces the wind, in or­der that it may rise higher.— Cor­rie ten Boom (1892–1983)

You gain strength, courage and con­fi­dence by ev­ery ex­pe­ri­ence in which you re­ally stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you can­not do.— Eleanor Roo­sevelt (1884–1962)

The things we try to avoid and fight against—tribulation, suf­fer­ing and per­se­cu­tion—are the very things that pro­duce abun­dant joy in us. Huge waves that would frighten the or­di­nary swim­mer pro­duce a tremen­dous thrill for the surfer who has rid­den them. “We are more than con­querors through Him” in all these things—not in spite of them, but in the midst of them. A saint doesn’t know the joy of the Lord in spite of tribulation, but be­cause of it.— Oswald Cham­bers (1874–1917)
