A really good friend reminded me recently that the most painful wounds are those that are self-inflicted.
I would add that those inflicted by trusted friends take the longest to heal.
A Facebook friend, Charlie Gibson, said, “And those inflicted by your family/significant other, leave lasting scars.”

Two things can be eliminated from everyone’s life it we control just one of the two:
- worry concerning things we’ve no control over and
- anxiety about tomorrow
Lose the latter and the former takes care of itself.

“..this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.” 1 John 5:4b
Notice the context (5:2-3) of our victory over the world is by way of keeping God’s commandments; however, it’s not the obedience which brings about the victory but rather the faith that brings about the obedience that does.
