Robert Louis Stevenson spent much of his life struggling with serious health issues. In spite of this, he remained eternally optimistic.
One day, when his fever was running high and he couldn’t control his coughing attacks, his wife said, somewhat cynically, “I suppose you still believe it’s a wonderful day.”
Stevenson replied, “Yes, I do. I will never permit a row of medicine bottles to block my horizon.”
Are there rows of problems and and rows of fears attempting to block your horizon today? Can you look past them and see the goodness of God?
But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever. (Psalm 52:8)
