You need not drown in the river of life when you encounter the strong storms of trials. Learn to be an expert boatman and you can row across this tumultuous river to the safe shores of God. "He that endureth to the end shall be saved" (Matthew 10:22). As you work and plan, rememeber that it is God who is working through you. Your mind should be charged with joy and detached from all unpleasant experiences. Be active, but not constantly active; relax completely when not active. Strengthen your will power to that you will not be controlled by circumstances, but will control the. Develop your will power by striving to do things that you thought you could not do. Work for others. Thus will you developo endurance and strength.
