There is Strength in the Struggle

Today I woke up and just didn’t feel as though I had enough energy to deal with what the day would bring. Work, family, bills, stress, etc. etc. No one likes to struggle. It can be exhausting and draining. Some days may be easier to handle than others but when it’s a tough day, the struggle feels like too much to bear.

As I went throughout the day I learned something about my struggles. It seems as though the more I struggle with or the more I go through, the better I seem internally. I know that sounds weird but somehow I get inspired in the struggle. The struggle is where my strength grows. I’m able to encourage others and in the same breath encourage myself.

I hear the voice of God the loudest because it’s in the struggle that I’m listening most intently. Looking for help -a word, a sign, anything that lets me know I’m not alone.

When life is all gravy I can be preoccupied with the ease of the day but in the midst of hardship, I become quiet and draw inward. It’s in there that I grow because God has my full attention.

Use your struggles to your advantage. Don’t see it as a hindrance but instead, take them as an opportunity to pray, to learn and to grow. Your answer may be waiting right there in the midst.

There is definitely strength in the struggle.

About nomorebandages

No More Bandages! promotes spiritual healing of the heart, mind and soul. NMB! focuses on, what I call, the spiritual and natural bandages that we place in our lives. A bandage is anything we use to cover up a wound. Those bandages can hinder our growth. Once that bandage is identified, it can be removed, allowing God to begin the healing process. God can heal cancer just as easily as a broken hea rt. It all lies within our desire to be made whole. I am blessed to be able to share my life and the abuse I endured beginning at just four years old. If I help just one person, my hurt and pain is not in vain. We all need healing in our lives.
