One of my favorite books is The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. Corrie ten Boom and her family helped many Jews escape to freedom during the Nazi Holocaust in the Netherlands. Her family was betrayed and sent to prison. Great suffering and adversity challenged the faith of the ten Booms. Yet they remained strong.
Every day we face challenges and adversity that can paralyze us from moving forward in our lives. We must learn to realize that worry does not change our situation or at all help...in fact, worry drains the strength that we have to fight.
As a follower of Christ, I must choose to keep my eyes on Him and remember that God is bigger than my problems. I must equip myself each day, focus on my great God, and unite with others of the same cause so that I can move forward in my life with strength.
