Be strong


E_Chinese_Symbols_Proverbs_Inner_Strength
Do not pray for easy lives.  Pray to be stronger men.  Do not pry for tasks equal to your powers.  Pray for powers equal to your tasks  Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but YOU SHALL BE A MIRACLE.  ———Philip Brooks.
We must remember that it is not an easy or self-indulgent life that will lead us to greatness.  The easy life leads not upward, but downward.  Heaven is always above us, and we must ever be looking up toward it.  There are people who always avoid things that are costly, that require self-denial or self-restraint and sacrifice, but toil and hardship show us the only way to nobleness.  Greatness comes, not by having a mossy path, made for you, through the meadow, but being sent to hew out a roadway with your own hands.
BE STRONG !
We are not here to play, to dream, to drift
we have hard work to do, and loads to lift
Shun not the struggle; face it
IT IS GOD’S GIFT.
BE STRONG !
Say not the days are evil —Who’s to blame ?
And fold the hands and acquiesce, O shame !
Stand up, speak out, and bravely
IN GOD’S NAME.
BE STRONG !
It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong
How hard the battle goes, the day how long
TOMORROW COMES THE SONG.
——— M. D. Babcock.
