How might I see these fears, these trials and woes, as gifts for which to give thanks?

Bearing the judgment of others teaches me humility. Living in the face of fear teaches me the power of faith in you. Tragedy brings me face-to-face with compassion.

Lord, let me learn the lessons you have set for me today. Let me not squander these treasures, though I may see them as pain in my weakness.

(Letter #1,651)
