Worry and Trust – Wisdom from the Past to Help you Today

Click to visit the original postI re-blogged this because the quotes from this Worry and Trust article are encouraging.

  • How a fretting disposition can lead us into further problems: ‘Contentment delivers us from an abundance of temptations. Oh, the temptations that men of discontented spirits are subject to! The Devil loves to fish in troubled waters.’ (p.126)

  • On Learning from Life’s Tough Experiences: ‘I make no question but you find it so, that your worst voyages have proved your best.’ (p.214)
  • Should the Believer be an Overcomer or a Worrier? ‘The spirit of a Christian should be a lion-like spirit; as Jesus Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (so he is called) so we should manifest something of the lion-like spirit of Jesus Christ.’ (p.148)

When I find a couple hours I am going to read this book – it is on currently on sale for $1.99 as a Kindle book
