Now Think About This

“If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest.” - Corrie Ten Boom

I personally have found these all to be very true. I've seen a single mother struggling to make it on her own and provide for her baby, smile and thank God for what she has. I've seen people without a care or want in the world gripe, whine and complain about something that didn't go their way, or give up because that's just the easiest thing to do.

One look at society and all its issues would make anyone irritated and distressed. I've seen a lot of people get so downtrodden and depressed just looking at themselves - inside and out. But looking to God? That'll bring peace.

Ponder that today, will you? 


  1. Yes....and it is so sad. I wish more people understood the potential of just being truly happy. But of course, that is impossible without God. It breaks my heart that they just can't see how wonderful life is when you fully trust in Him!!! I am so blessed to know Him and give my whole life over to Him!!! Great post and reminder to us all!!! <3 <3

    1. I can totally relate. It really is so sad to see the blindness there!

  2. Perfect quotes, both of them. I'm definitely pondering. Thanks<3

  3. thanks for that, I really needed a reminder like this today x
