Turn to the light; don’t fear the shadows it creates.”

And in the end it is not suffering at all. The apostle Paul recommended that we find joy in it. Was he mad?”

Another is to do studies. Another is to go to a place of worship. Another thing is to sit and listen to someone who’s speaking. There’s all kinds of ways. Another way is to write. About the truth. Discover the struggle through your character.”
