Problems are all around us. Some problems seem like impossible situations. They can leave a person feeling anxious, fearful and depressed. Still other problems can be so overwhelming that a person cannot imagine being able to solve them.
J. C. Penny understood the emotional turmoil involved in dealing with problems. He was the founder JCPenny department stores. After being successful in business, he found himself in a crisis. Penny suffered a financial setback, after the stock market crashed during the Great Depression. He was admitted to a psychological institution as a result. After hearing the hymn, “God Will Take Care of You,” Penny had a spiritual turnaround. He later said, “I am grateful for all my problems. After each one was overcome, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties.”
Find the grace to be thankful for your problem. Overcome your situations and discover new strength. You have a great future ahead of you!
