Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and those around us.

When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when we put ourselves in God’s hands were better than we could have planned.

 In my own case, the foundation stone of freedom from fear is that of faith; a faith that, despite all worldly appearances to the contrary, causes me to believe that I live in a universe that makes sense.

To me, this means a belief in a Creator who is all power, justice, and love; a God who intends for me a purpose, a meaning, and a destiny to grow, however little and haltingly, toward His own likeness and image. Before the coming of faith I had lived as an alien in a cosmos that too often seemed hostile and cruel. In it there could be no inner security for me.
