Through understanding, I am comforted.
If I am bewildered or distressed by the challenges I face, I turn within in heart and mind for divine understanding. From my human perspective, life may at times appear unjust; but from a divine perspective, every experience has a higher meaning. Difficult situations are like the trips and falls of childhood—even through occasional tears, I learned and improved. As I look back now, I realize that these challenges were my greatest teachers. I am comforted and strengthened as my understanding deepens. I stand strong through times of doubt and keep my consciousness open to the larger truth. My mind and heart are at peace as I trust in the eternal goodness of God and the unfolding wonder of life.
O comfort my people, says your God.—Isaiah 40:1
