trouble

A Quote by St. Macarius of Optina on god, christianity, help, trouble, enlightenment, awakening, truth, freedom, and joy

Listen!  God, Himself says, 'Call upon Me in the time of trouble so that I will hear thee and thou will praise Me'.  Afflictions confirm us in our faith, and teach us to set worldly glory at naught.  Believe firmly that no suffering or sorrow can visit us --- not a hair of our heads can fall --- with out God intending it.  Although we are always inclined to put down our misfortunes to the ill will or stupidity of other men, these are in reality, only tools in the hand of God; tools used to fashion our salvation.  Therefore take heart and pray to our Lord Who is always at work for our salvation, using to this end both what we call happiness and what we call sorrow.

I believe that as soon as people want peace in the world they can have it.  The trouble is they are not aware they can get it.

A Quote by Vernon Howard on everyone, existence, wise, challenge, investigate, trouble, people, deliver, force, entity, power, higher, and nature

Everyone must concede that there is in existence something wiser than himself. Now there is a challenge, there is a challenge which few even investigate. We're going to do that now. Let's see what we're talking about. All troubled people, which is all people, must if they are going to be delivered from themselves, must make the concession that there is a force, an entity, a power that is higher than their own present nature.

A Quote by Dhammapada The Buddha on self-mastery, think, thought, mind, trouble, follow, wheel, ox, car, world, speech, action, pure mind, happiness, shadow, enemy, mastered, and unguarded

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will forllow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unbreakable.

How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?

Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.

But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

Dhammapada The Buddha

A Quote by The Bible on psalm, light, fear, strength, life, afraid, wicked, enemies, foes, trouble, joy, cry, mercy, lord, and courage

Psalm 27

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
        whom shall I fear?
        The LORD is the strength of my life;
        of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,
        came upon me to eat up my flesh,
        they stumbled and fell.

3 Though a host should encamp against me,
        my heart shall not fear:
        though war should rise against me,
        in this will I be confident.

4 One thing have I desired of the LORD,
        that will I seek after;
        that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
        all the days of my life,
        to behold the beauty of the LORD,
         and to inquire in his temple.

5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
        in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
        he shall set me up upon a rock.

6 And now shall mine head be lifted up
        above mine enemies round about me:
        therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
        I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice:
        have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
        my heart said unto thee,
        Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9 Hide not thy face far from me;
        put not thy servant away in anger:
        thou hast been my help;
        leave me not, neither forsake me,
        O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
        then the LORD will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD,
       and lead me in a plain path,
       because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies:
        for false witnesses are risen up against me,
        and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed
        to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the LORD:
        be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
        wait, I say, on the LORD.
