Our Truest Strength

posted by Guy Finley

Regardless of how one may feel in any given moment, real life can present no task before us for which we are “inadequate.”

Yes, we may be unprepared at its outset… just as each year a bare tree can’t know, in advance, the weight of a heavy winter snowfall until its branches bend and maybe even break beneath it; but no tree is its limbs, and neither are we made less for what we can’t do or carry when first challenged by something that seems too great for us to handle.

Our truest strength is our ability to realize that whatever our present weakness may be, it is but a temporary one… providing we are willing to persist, to wade into what seems greater than we are, and test this truth time and time again.

The unimaginable reward of persisting through whatever stands in your way is the eventual — and inevitable — discovery that you are created to change.
