tomorrow’s handles

By October 7, 2010Church

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” — Henry Ward Beecher

There are a number of anxious people in our world — and I don’t mean the larger, global world, but your little corner of the landscape.  We encounter anxious people at work, next door, and around the kitchen table.

What is anxiety?  Anxiety is anticipating something bad or dangerous happening and worrying about it before it happens.  And many times, it never happens.

On the other hand, faith is anticipating what God is capable of doing and waiting hopefully for it to happen.

Fear or faith.  Anxiety over what hasn’t happened or hoping for what could happen.  The choice is yours.
