When you are working through a challenge it may sometimes seem as though you are straining to see the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
I know that feeling because that was my personal experience many years ago. There seemed to be no end to the difficulties facing me or a way out of that tunnel. Yet, a way was found as I persisted in faith, and the difficulties did go away.
Understandably, it can be very discouraging not to be able to see the way out, or to come up with the answer to a perplexing problem. But as someone once said, “There is light at both ends of the tunnel.”
This means that you really go from light to light, not from darkness to more darkness, unless you ignorantly insist upon remaining in the dark, believing there is no way out.
Usually, a change in thinking needs to be made. This is because it is thinking that creates most difficulties as well as desirable experiences. In truth, the only person who can change things for you, is you. It is helpful to ask others to pray with you and to seek expert counsel, but the ultimate change must happen in you.
The best way out of difficulties is to stop thinking about them and turn your attention completely to God within. Relax completely, take a few deep breaths and quietly seek for answers. Open your mind to seeing the blessing in a challenge or difficulty. The blessing is there, but hidden from view until you clear your spiritual vision so that you may see light and the way out is revealed to you. Practicing the Presence of God reveals the way to turn challenges into blessings. – Lovingly, Rev. John

The Healing Word
Health is fundamental in Being and is man’s divine birthright. To be healthy is natural. Health is the normal condition of man and of all creation. It is the orderly state of existence. It is a state of being sound or whole in mind, body, and soul. God’s man is hale, whole and hearty.
Health, real health, is from within and does not have to be manufactured in the without. Health is the very essence of Being. It is as universal and enduring as God. – Charles Fillmore, Dynamics For Living
The Prospering Word
Begin now to change your thinking. Today think more positively and prosperously. You owe it to yourself to do so. Do everything you can to get out of any kind of lack, or less-than-the-best circumstances. Do not believe that you must put up with them. You don’t! Begin creating happier, more peaceful and prosperous conditions by declaring the following: I live right now in the midst of God’s bounty where all my needs are satisfied. I dare to prosper now!

A Little Humor. . .
Two brothers were building a barn. One brother would grab a handful of nails and look them over. Muttering to himself, he would use some and throw the others away. When the other brother asked why he was throwing some of the nails away, he replied in a disgusted voice, “Blasted things! The heads are on the wrong end!”
“Don’t throw them away,” the other brother advised. “We’ll use them on the other side of the wall.”
