A Calm Faith

Virginia 009

“The antidote to frustration

is a calm faith,

not in your own cleverness,

or in hard toil,

but in God’s guidance.”

.

~ Norman Vincent Peale

.

It is good to work smart and persevere

but if all of your time and effort is not

being spent in doing God’s labor

the outcome will be in vain and frustration

will be the wages.

Have faith; be kind, be loving, be patient,

be tolerant, be compassionate and know

that peace of mind and serenity

will be your reward.

Happiness is a calm faith in God’s guidance.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Avoidance

061

.

“Part of the

happiness of life

consists not in

fighting battles,

but in avoiding them.

A masterly retreat

is in itself a victory.”

.

~ Norman Vincent Peale

.

Most battles are ego driven, selfish,

self-centered desires which will benefit no one.

Stubborn, bull-headed, mean, lazy or ignorant

do not constitute good reasons to start a crusade.

Compromise, there is usually a better way.

Today, if you feel that you must fight,

pick a cause that will benefit the whole world.

Remember, even Jesus found it necessary

to confront the money changers in the temple.

Happiness is avoiding the battles.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
