Ideas and Inspiration from the desk of Frank J Casella
Struggling in life can help us find answers and make it all worthwhile. What difficulties are you facing? We all go through struggles, and how we respond to them makes a difference. Sometimes we experience pain in relationships, work, or friendships. But remember, even in the toughest situations, God can work things for the better. It’s important to ask ourselves if it’s worth it and how God can use these circumstances to help others. Often, our greatest struggles end up being turning points in our lives or relationships. So keep going, because God can make it all worth it.

Just a thought ... 

"Our American culture wants us to believe that success is when we obtain material possessions or compare ourselves to be better than others. This is especially true for us as men, who have it in our DNA to be warriors and fight towards the goal line. This makes it easy to serve ourselves and make people think we are serving God.


However, the true definition of success is when opportunity meets preparation. This is when we are able to use our God-given abilities to serve others and make a difference in their lives."
