Thank God for Problems

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I am grateful for all of my problems. After each one was overcome, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties.

~James Cash Penney
1875-1971, Founder of J.C. Penney Stores

    Amen, If we never had a problem, we wouldn't know that God could solve them. Be encouraged and have a blessed day.
