When confronted with an issue, the stones and thorns in life will reveal a weakness - by unrest within. Sometimes a confusing unrest is caused by the uncertainty of conflicts between external and internal directions. A person often finds himself in a mental and emotional tug-of-war as differing ideas compete for his commitment. The Apostle Paul recommended a solution to this when he counseled: "Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh, for the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would." (Galatians 5:16,17) Not all external direction is wrong or evil. For instance, our parents gave us specific directions and rules in our childhood and youth to protect us and guide us away from serious misadventures. This direction is usually continued until we gradually demonstrated an ability to act for ourselves.
~ Loyd J. Ericson.
Youth is a disease from which we all recover.

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
