Quote Of the Day

Over the last few years, I have had an increasing awareness of anxiety, fear and worry in my life.  I am blessed to be able to walk through it with a very close friend and we are always finding new quotes and verses to encourage one another in this battle for FAITH!  So here is the latest:

"There is nothing - no circumstance, no trouble, no testing - that can ever touch me until, first of all, it has gone past God and past Christ right through to me.  If it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose, which I may not understand at that moment.  But as I refuse to become panicky, as I lift up my eyes to HIm and accept it as coming from the throne of God for some great purpose of blessing to my own heart, no sorrow will ever disturb me, no trial will ever disarm me, no circumstance will ever cause me to fret - for I shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is! - That is the rest of victory!"

-Alan Redpath
