When I think I am content with life, my earth shakes. I struggle. I fight. I learn. I adapt. I change. Through my transformation, I excel.
Life is never certain, but what I know for sure is that I’ll never have life figured out. It’s ever changing and I’ll continue to adapt and evolve with my experiences. Life is a series of lessons learned and struggles aren’t always a curse. Struggles, whether they’re physical, emotional, or intellectual, build character and determine my success and make me uniquely strong.
There are times that I’ve been shoved, stressed, and slammed against immovable forces too strong to fight, yet through endurance and the Lord’s strength and His belief in me, I push harder and stand taller every time. It’s about learning to adapt in whatever circumstance I’m in and having the courage to seek opportunity, embrace change, and be my best.
Looking back I’m always in wonder how I overcame those obstacles. It reminds me I can do anything in life if I put my mind, heart, and strength in the Lord. He is the creator of all great things in my life and I owe it to Him for my transformation.
I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13)
