“I used to think that life was hills and valleys – you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountain top, back and forth. I don't believe that anymore. Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life.
No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on.
And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.”
~ Rick Warren
“Happy people don’t have less problems. They think differently.”
“Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you are going when your lights are dim.”
“Acting upon what we know to be true in the absence of really seeing it physically precisely matches the definition of faith. ...
But, understand faith requires the possibility of doubt. In the absence of really good reasons to doubt, we do not need faith. In other words, faith and doubt are not polar opposites. Rather, doubt constitutes the necessary precondition for faith.
It is only in an atmosphere full of doubt, faith can really thrive and grow.”
