My thermostat is probably the most versatile item in my house because it allows me to maintain a constant environment effortlessly with the touch of a finger. Unlike a thermometer that changes constantly a thermostat keeps things steady.
When I speak with women who are experiencing challenges it is amazing how some change their attitude and words even their countenance to reflect their circumstances.

If you're like me, I smile at the risk of being suspended a few feet in the air without the stability of having my feet on the ground -- (every Realtor knows what I'm saying here) because I know, based on God's Word, that my feet will once again touch back down and I'll walk away from the ride feeling exhilarated and confident.
Ask yourself where you are when challenges come your way. Do you change with the trial or do you remain sure through faith that your trials won't change you. Every child of God has the assurance of our Creator that He will never leave us nor forsake us. When we place our full trust in Him, (Proverbs 3:4-5) He is faithful to carry us through.
