Look for the Good

This past year has been a big faith journey for me, and my family. Stepping out in faith often comes with it's fair share of criticism, suffering and extreme blessing. The suffering almost always walks hand in hand with blessing. So we take the suffering, walk in hope and dwell in the blessings they bring.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
“What you see and hear
depends a good deal on where you are standing;
it also depends on what kind of a person you are”
-C.S. Lewis

“The big print giveth, and the fine print taketh away.”
-Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, 
and also to love our enemies; 
probably because generally they are the same people.”
-G. K. Chesterton
