When troubles come your way, don’t allow the immediate concerns to bring life to a grinding halt.

Get up. Move on.

Use problems as stepping stones and not as roadblocks.

The people of Judah were in captivity and hoping against hope to be allowed to return to their beloved homeland. But God said that wouldn’t happen for another seventy years so they should be content and learn from the terrible circumstances.

Jeremiah 29:4-7
New International Version (NIV)

This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.

“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.

Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.

Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

Listen not to those who say all will be well because life will not always be well.

Jesus speaking:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)
