Wisdom for the Journey
If you think you know it all, you’re a fool for sure;
real survivors learn wisdom from others.
PROVERBS 28:26 (THE MESSAGE)
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Our attitude toward things is likely to be more important
than the things themselves.
Attitude is the librarian of our past,
the speaker of our present,
the prophet of our future.
Afflictions color your life
but you choose the color.
An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity;
A pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity.
HERBERT V PROCHNOW
Some people complain because God put thorns on roses,
while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns.
A pessimist is a person who, regardless of the present,
Is disappointed in the future.
A thankful disposition will always find some cause for cheer
And a gloomy one will find a cloud in the brightest sky
and a fly in the sweetest ointment.
Let us cultivate a spirit of cheerfulness
And we shall find so much in God and in our lives
to encourage us
that we shall have no room for doubt or fear.
Thankfulness that is put into words has a healing effect
upon the soul.
Joyful is the person who finds wisdom,
the one who gains understanding.
PROVERBS 3:13 (NLT)
On the Journey with You,
