greatest support system in the world

What is the one thing that you do to get you through those most difficult times?

"The wise counsel of good friends. The greatest support system in the world is those close, intimate friends.

Figure out ways to help other people pay their bills, and yours get paid. When you figure out a way to help other people get well, you get well. If you help inspire someone, you become inspired. Change your focus from yourself and where you are and the difficulty you find yourself in, and see if you can't go to work a little extra helping people raise from where they are to where they want to be. Go rescue somebody from oblivion, go say a word of confidence and peace to somebody that's having more trouble than you are having.

Rest and wait until the time passes.

Prayer. I do believe that God is in control. Once I settled that about 40 years ago, I have lived the most incredible, peaceful life. If there is one word that I can give you to go home with, the major word would be 'trust'. Trust is better than worship. Just daily trust, starting in the morning, through the day, in the evening when you're a bit troubled about what happened, just say, 'Hey, I'm going to trust that come morning, answers will come--I'll have a new zest, a new vigor a new vitality.' Just that kind of trust has really seen me through."
