“Strengthening Your Grip!” with Rev. Jimmie Scott
A large portion of our lives is literally shaped by our attitudes towards the way we respond to the inevitable frustrations problems and disappointments that can, and do, happen in life. In my opinion, there is no way to predict what we need to do to be prepared for these inevitabilities, but there is a way to fortify ourselves for many possibilities. The game of life requires both offense and defense. The discipline of prayer and meditation can be a great tool for preparing ourselves to operate offensively or defensively.
Victor Frankl shares the following anecdote from his experience in the “prison camp.”
“If a prisoner felt he could no longer endure the realities of prison camp life. He found a way out in his mental life, an invaluable opportunity to dwell in the spiritual domain, the one that the SS was unable to destroy. Spiritual life strengthened the prisoner, helped him adapt, and thereby improved his chances of survival.”
There is a way, then there is a way out!
Peace and Love, Rev. Jimmie
