DELIGHT IN YOUR FEARS

The strongest of men or women, are not those who endure pain with ease, they are those who face failure with knowledge that they too are just human, but that failing is in itself full of lessons.Fear
Ever heard this phrase, for when I am weak, then I am strong! Sometimes, it passes as one of those religious clichés that make little sense.

But it is very true, our greatest strength, is revealed in the moments of our biggest weakness. Strength, I have come to believe, is not about being bubbly and happy, and meeting our challenges and living through fire with a smile.

True strength, is about sometimes being jolted by reality that we are all human. That moment, when you realize you can also fail, also cry. That you can also try and it does not work out. That realization that brings you closer to yourself.

The strongest of men or women, are not those who endure pain with ease, they are those who face failure with knowledge that they too are just human, but that failing is in itself full of lessons.

I realize, as a person it takes me to be frightened to be closer with myself and conscience. And when that happens, that moment when I realize that I missed a step, or that I may miss a step. That moment when your own strength seems not to work, and you are forced to give yourself up to a greater guidance, a greater inspiration, that is when you are truly strong.

So just like it is written, I too this morning: I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong

Happy day Friends
