“The tests of life are to make, not break us.
Trouble may demolish a man's business
but build up his character.
The blow at the outward man
may be the greatest blessing to the inner man.
If God, then, puts or permits
anything hard in our lives,
be sure that the real peril, the real trouble,
is that we shall lose if we flinch or rebel.”
