Stronger than you think

Four years ago I was weak, frail and vulnerable.  Today I am strong, confident and determined.   In our frailty we find ourselves and come to terms with what we are not.  Surrendering to the pressures is not failure it is acceptance.   When we accept the situation for what it is and ourselves for what we are, we find peace.  In the peace comes understanding and when understanding arrives, it brings with it hope, future and strength. 




* Hope that new opportunities, new beginnings or a new life awaits.  

* Future that if we look forward with a positive mind, can be amazing. 

* Strength to face every day, no matter what it brings.


The last four years have definately been challenging on a number of levels - emotionally, spiritually and physically.  What I have found, is that I am stronger than I think.  However, this strength is not just my own.   A faith that God knows more, he knows what lies around the corner and he will only give me what he knows I can handle.   Strength.  To live, to face the world, to rise above and to be the woman that he designed me to be.

You too are strong.  You may not feel it today, perhaps the weight of a lifetime of struggles are holding you down.   Stop fighting against and accept that what was, was and what will be, will be.   Face every day with confidence knowing that the same God who created the universe, holds your hand through the darkest days and enjoys running beside you when the world is smiling at you.
