I read this morning a fascinating quote from E.Stanley Jones:
"A young army officer said this, 'Weather, in war, is always favorable, if you know how to use it.' That is the point--if you know how to use it. The fact is that everything that comes to you in life is favorable--if you know how to use it."
I look at the day before me and grimace over the tasks, but then I wonder, Is everything favorable if I know how to use it?
I look out at the icy rain and frown over the weather, but then I ask myself: How can I use this?
Beautiful things are coming; I'm already choosing joy. Over these last 600 blog entries, I'm learning to use whatever comes in order to learn, grow, and find beauty. That's God promise, and I find that He keeps it.
Do you know how to use whatever you're going through?
