The Hand You are Dealt

Is your plane falling from the sky? There’s not a thing you can do about it. Deal with it. Are you next in line for the guillotine or the firing squad or to be thrown to the lions? Are 15 floors of your office building burning, and you’re on the 40th floor and there’s no way out? Brace yourself, say your prayers, deal with it. Are you going to be paralyzed for the rest of your life? Are you going to lose an arm or a leg? Is something rotten in Denmark? Deal with it. Or don’t, depending upon whether you wish to minimize or multiply the trouble. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but there’s really only one sane option: deal with it.

“Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart” – never forget the hope! – “and you’ll never walk alone.”

Unless, of course, you fail to keep on loving, or at least striving to love, no matter what. Fail there and yes, for practical purposes, you will be very much alone.

P.S.) Deal with it HOW? I don't know. I do not know. But this I do know, that God will show His own what they need to do, when they need to do it.
