When problems weigh us down, we're often blinded to what's going on around us, and we don't see the goodness of God anywhere.

Billy Graham was noted as saying, "If God brings us to it, He'll bring us through it."

Many of us look beyond today and focus on a day up ahead. We miss the reality that TODAY is the ONLY day we have because there is NO promise for a tomorrow—not in this world, anyway.
