Unless you are the luckiest person in the world, I think it would be safe to assume that you have faced some form of adversity. I know that I have had my fair share of adversities. Sometimes the mountain is just a little too steep to climb; or taking that road was just a little too far down.
Despite the many challenges we face; by design we are resilient persons. As individuals we have the capacity for stoicism. We can choose our attitude about life. Regardless of adversity--I choose to remain optimistic, hoping for the best in all things.
When taking long drives with my family I often think about the many adversities I have faced. A sign outside a church near my home reads "7 Days without prayer makes one weak." On the opposite side of the sign it says "ASAP...Always Say A Prayer."
Through prayer we can find comfort and solace as we face various adversities. Prayer often provides the strength to carry on and persevere in adversity. Regardless of the task, a prayerful approach invokes divine guidance.
