    < Evil never surrenders its hold without a sore fight.
    We never pass into any spiritual inheritance through the delightful exercises of a picnic, but always through the grim contentions of the battle field. It is so in the secret realm of the soul.
    Every faculty which wins its spiritual freedom does so at the price of blood. Apollyon is not put to flight by a courteous request; he straddles across the full breadth of the way, and our progress has to be registered in blood and tears.
    This we must remember or we shall add to all the other burdens of life the gall of misinterpretation. We are not "born again" into soft and protected nurseries, but in the open country where we suck strength from the very terror of the tempest.
    "We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. "

    ~ by Dr. J. H. Jowett ~

    Or , as the saying goes...No guts, no glory!! :)

    Today there may be a storm that’s roaring in our life, and we may feel like we might be swept away in a flood of anxiety and heartache. Friend, no matter what we face, nothing and no one can tear us from our Father’s hand.

    When it comes to His children, God’s touch is more than a caress......it’s a firm grip.
    He is the One who tenderly shields our soul, and His hand is the place of ultimate security and refuge.
    So we find our comfort in the assurance that He hides us in His hand—and He is there when we need Him most.

    God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging” Psalm 46:1-3.

    "The fruit of the Spirit is peace."

    "To be spiritually minded is life and peace."

    "God hath called us to peace."
    " Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. "

    "The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost."

    "I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day. "
    " Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in Thee."

    "The work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. "

    "Whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."

    "Great peace have they which love thy law."

    GAL. 5:22. Rom. 8:6. I Cor. 7:15. ‑John 14:27. ‑Rom. 15:13. II Tim. 1:12. ‑Isa. 26:3. Isa. 32:17,18. ‑Prov. 1:33. Psa. 119
