“I define poise as being true to oneself, not getting rattled, thrown off, or unbalanced regardless of the circumstance or situation.” –John Wooden
A roller coaster has ups and downs, turns and twists, much like our day-to-day lives. When tragedy would have you spiraling downward, hold on to the Lord and He will keep you in perfect peace. Don’t panic; pray for poise. Keep a level head and play it cool. Circumstances can quickly change, but let your faith in Christ remain constant.
I am leaving you with a gift--peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid (John 14:27, NLT).
