Some words of motivation

Life is full of trials and tribulations.  The economy is not in great shape, work is never easy, and school is always tough.  In such times people often get caught up in things and forget about the big picture

2:155 – 2:156

And most certainly shall We try you by means* of danger, and hunger, and loss of worldly goods, of lives and of [labour’s] fruits. But give glad tidings unto those who are patient in adversity – who, when calamity befalls them, say, “Verily, unto God do we belong and, verily, unto Him we shall return.”

*lit. “with something”

Being a student, I can relate; as the semester comes to a close students stress like crazy about exams, papers and finals.  But again, we must never forget who to turn to in times of difficulty.

2:152

so remember Me, and I shall remember you; and be grateful unto Me, and deny Me not
