People can think what they want about me, but I know I am not the strong unemotional person many seem to think I am. Here’s why

And as I found the strength to face each day, I found a way to ‘put on’ a public face that gives the illusion that I’m a strong individual who is in control of their life and their emotions. If you remember nothing else, remember looks can be deceiving!

When life gets tough it can seem like nothing is possible. However we can often find more strength than we knew we possessed during those times, to overcome adversity.

God is with us during our happiest of times, but he’s also with us through our darkest times. Even when don’t feel God is with us, He is. And it’s Him who gives us our greatest strength to face every situation we face in life.

Always remember, it’s during those tough times, that we grow the most, because those situations give us real-life experience allowing us to grow and learn. That’s probably not how it feels when we’re going through those difficult times, but when you look back on them once you’re in a happier place, I’m sure you’ll realise then how much strength God gave you to get through those difficult days.

I’m sure we’ve all faced situations or circumstances when we’ve felt as if there’s no way you can get through it. But here we are, we’re still here, so we must have made it through those difficult times. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a struggle or that we didn’t wish we didn’t need to face those things, it simply means we had  the strength to make it through those times.

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginning

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you’re stronger
Stronger than you know

When we put our trust firmly in God, he will give us the strength we need to get through anything.

Always remember, you are stronger than you could ever imagine when God is supporting you. So trust Him, and he will give you the strength you need, always.

Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

When you’re at your lowest, what raises your spirits and helps you see a future you want to be part of?

For me, when I’ve been at my lowest I had someone who gave me the strength and reassurance to get me through.

Are you a strong person?

I’ve found that it’s usually those who don’t think they are strong that are usually the strongest people. I know I never consider myself to be a strong person, particularly these days, but maybe I’m simply just confirming my own statement that those who are strongest don’t think they are strong!

There’s nothing wrong with loving others, in fact that’s exactly what we should do. But there is something wrong with crying behind closed doors, because we all need love and support. So just as I said yesterday, maybe we all need to show our vulnerabilities so others can see we need their love and support.

Come all you weary
Come and find
His yoke is easy
His burden light
He is able, He will restore
At the table of the Lord

When we approach God’s table, we are seeking His strength, forgiveness, hope and assurance that all will be well.

No matter how broken or tired we are, God can make us strong again. Strong enough to face whatever life throws our way.

God will provide all we need.

Face it

Sometimes this is all we need to remember…

But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength ~ 2 Timothy 4:17 (NIV)

There can be times in our lives when strength to face another day can seem a million miles away – it’s during those times in particular that we must always remember that God will give us strength.

Carry on

There can be days that are difficult to face.

There can be days you’re not sure how you’re going find the strength to get through them.

I am just glad that when I face days like those, I face them in the knowledge that God is with me, and He will give me the strength and courage to get through them.

Lord help me carry on

I’m sure we’ve all experienced times when others have let us down or disappointed us. It’s during times like these it can be difficult to forgive and difficult to love others.

That’s why it’s just as well we don’t have to find the strength ourselves to forgive and love others in these circumstances, because God will provide the strength and the reason we need to love them.

Love God and He will enable you to love others even when they disappoint you ~ Francine Rivers
