One act of thanksgiving when things go wrong with us is worth a thousand thanks when things are agreeable to our inclination.
John of Avila
For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Revised Standard Version
Standing your ground is easier when you are grounded in God’s Word.
