Be resilient

Sometimes life will knock you down….

However, it’s up to you whether you will stay down or get back up…

The book of Proverbs tells us that the righteous man falls down 7 times, but gets up each time…

Perhaps the righteous man’s resiliency is not found in his own strength, but rather it is found in his faith and dependence in a God who does not abandon. His faith is in a God who strengthens, empowers, and delivers.

Next time you feel like life is about to knock you down, choose to stay standing with your eyes fixed on the one who will see you through.

You can and will do all things through Christ who strengthens you. 🙏🔥💪

    1. I’m so sorry about that. I’ve been having issues liking others too and I can’t figure out what is going on.
      Thank you for stopping by and sharing God’s word. Blessings to you. 🙂
