Moleskin:
The next time you walk out of the house for an early morning beatdown, look up to the sky and take a moment to notice the stars. Then remember that the God that created them with a snap of his fingers also has all of your troubles in the palm of his hand. Things in this life do not happen TO you, they happen FOR you. We may not always know the reason at the time, but all things are part of God's plan for us.
