Face the Trouble - It will Make You Stronger

Quotes we all follow sometimes are based on nothing more than human observation, and as such, are subject to the winds of fortune.  Some ideas, however, are founded in the bedrock of our very being, and are part of ancient wisdom from a source greater than we all.  

For example, "that which does not kill us makes us stronger",  by Friedrich Nietzsche, is often used in the martial arts.  Nietzsche is not a person whose life style, ideas or moral code I would willingly follow.  Yet, this quote has roots far deeper.  Romans 5:3-4 is one such source.

Difficulty is the stone that sharpens our edge.  We should rejoice at its advent, and seek it in our training.
