Family Matters 10-16-18

It is inevitable that we will face problems in life. It doesn’t take long for us to realize that everything doesn’t turn out like we wanted it to. That’s life! The question we must ask ourselves is whether we will allow those times to make us bitter, or make us better. Martin Luther King said, “The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

When we face obstacles, we discover things about ourselves that we might not have known before. We can’t run from our problems and we can’t become better by being bitter. You might even find that you are stronger than you thought you were. I have heard it said, “The brightest thunderbolt is the one that comes from the darkest storm.” My husband says, “You may have problems, but don’t let problems have you!” Determine to come out on the other side stronger and better!
