When you are face to face with a difficulty, you are up against a discovery. - Lord Kelvin (Shared by Timothy Cabrera)
Misfortune is a test of one's fidelity. IN OTHER WORDS, walk through accusation, trials and troubles as one of integrity, loyalty and with the utmost faith in God knowing that He will defend you and you do not need to defend yourself. (Shared by Fiona Anderson)

Juan comes up to the Mexican border on his bicycle. He's got two large bags over his shoulders. The guard stops him and says, "What's in the bags?"
"Sand," answered Juan.
The guard says, "We'll just see about that ~ get off the bike." The guard takes the bags and rips them apart; he empties them out and finds nothing in them but sand. He detains Juan overnight and has the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags.
The guard releases Juan, puts the sand into new bags, hefts them onto the man's shoulders, and lets him cross the border.
A week later, the same thing happens. The guard asks, "What have you got?"
"Sand," says Juan.
The guard does his thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to Juan, and Juan crosses the border on his bicycle.
This sequence of events if repeated every day for two years. Finally, Juan quits showing up and the guard later meets him in a Cantina in Mexico.
"Hey, Buddy," says the guard, "I know you were smuggling something. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about..... I can't sleep. Just between you and me, what were you smuggling?"
Juan sips his drink and says, "Bicycles."

Sir Isaac Newton made a most daring forecast two hundred years ago regarding a future development in rapid transit, which at that time seemed absolutely beyond the possibility of ever seeing realization. Newton declared that he was convinced from a study of Bible prophecy that there was destined to be "a marvelous increase in the speed of transportation on the earth." "I believe," he said, "that in the providence of God, though the method now be entirely hidden, men will yet travel on the earth at the rate of fifty miles an hour." Newton lived from 1642-1727. In his day the most rapid travel by land was by horse. . . . Stagecoaches drawn about eight miles an hour by horses held the record on land. - By John Lewis Shuler, Signs of the Times, May 3, 1927
