Another Episode of Survivor
All of those things are part of the human condition. Our response to a season like that can define our character and definitely determines how well we will handle it the next time. This is how resiliency is built .... by surviving one thing after another until we have confidence that we can handle the next thing... whatever the next thing might be.
I confess to being in a slump the past few days, but I know that with God's help I will get through this time and head into better days. I also know that the better days will pass and there will be some tougher days after that. But the key is this: I know that because He has done it in the past, God will take care of those as well.
Just like muscles are strengthened when we use them, resiliency is built when we rely on God to take us through the ups and downs of life. So whether or not you feel like it today, you are a survivor.
I was introduced to this song recently and I want to share it with you today. I'm not sure who needs to hear it, but I hope it speaks to you. I've listened to several times the past few days.
