sorrow

Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.    Charles Spurgeon

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.          Philippians 4:6-7

faith

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, Faith looks up!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

worry not

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” Corrie ten Boom

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Sorrow, defeat & victory

We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, “Why did this happen to me?” unless we ask the same question for every moment of happiness that comes our way.  ~Author Unknown

Defeat may serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.  ~Edwin Markham
