I Asked For Strength And God Gave Me

Difficulties to make me strong.

Nothing comes easy. It’s a simple fact of life that we all grapple with, but it is one that can be forgotten in the midst of our daily routines and demanded duties. When you are faced with an obstacle, ask yourself: What does this hardship mean for me? Is it a test? A lesson? Or is it an opportunity to grow as a person?

I find that difficulties do not just happen; they are there to teach us something about ourselves. Sometimes these lessons are painful, but they are necessary if we want our lives to be meaningful and fulfilling.

When you’re facing adversity, take some time to think about why you’re going through what you’re going through right now—the obstacles in your life may not always make sense at first glance, but if you look closely enough at them (and even more importantly, within yourself), then perhaps something positive can come out of the experience after all!

Problems to solve.

As you read this, you are perfect in my eyes. You are your own person who has been given the opportunity to make a difference in this world. You can solve problems, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to fix or even that they will be solved at all. Problems are opportunities for learning, growth and helping others, though sometimes we need our faith shaken before we see things clearly enough for those lessons to sink in.

We’ve all faced tough times before—some more than others—but some people don’t know how important it is to look at these struggles as opportunities rather than failures; they may even take them as signs of weakness rather than strength just because they don’t understand how much value there is in solving problems with perseverance instead of giving up when things get hard (or worse yet: stop trying altogether).

Trials to overcome.

In times of trial, you have the chance to grow. You can choose to become better and more understanding. And perhaps most importantly, trials are opportunities for self-love.

When we look back on our lives and where we were in the past compared to now, we can see how much we’ve grown and changed over time. The same is true if you look at yourself after a trial has passed through your life: “Wow,” you might say, “I am so much stronger than I used to be! I survived that?!” If this happens often enough then eventually it becomes not just something that happened but also part of who you are; your experience will likely play an important role in forming who your future self becomes too.

Sorrows to console.

Sorrows to console.

When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.

—William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar (1599)

When we think of strength, we often associate it with muscles or physical stamina. But the word “strength” has a much broader definition: it means “a force capable of exerting great power, influence or pressure.” In this sense, strength is more about perseverance than physical prowess (although both can be used as instruments for building up your mental fortitude). The Bible says that God gives us strength when he knows we need it most: “For those who were counted worthy to attain the first resurrection did not receive a spirit of slavery leading to fear again but received the Spirit … by which one can approach God…. We have received not only grace but also a responsibility…to become servants of all…and so increase our faith and God-given capacities for serving others in love” (Revelation 7:11-17).

Friendships to restore.

A relationship is only as strong as its weakest link.

And if you have a friend who is not being loyal, consider that person your weakest link. You may have been able to overlook minor faults in the past, but they are now holding you back from becoming the best man or woman you can be.

No one deserves to be treated like dirt by another human being who they’ve known for years and shared so much with. Yet many people do just that: they treat their friends poorly because they feel entitled or superior in some way. It’s time for those friendships to end—for both parties’ sakes!

Loneliness to endure.

We all experience loneliness at some point. Loneliness is a lack of connection to others, ourselves, or God. It can be a brief moment of feeling alone or it can become chronic and last for years. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), those who experience mental illnesses like depression often feel lonely due to their illness and its symptoms like social withdrawal or difficulty connecting with others.

You may feel isolated if you are living with someone who has an addiction problem, suffers from mental illness like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, has lost touch with friends and family members because they moved away or died unexpectedly; your spouse passed away; your children do not live at home anymore; you have been diagnosed with cancer; you were abused as a child; etc.

The future to face with confidence.

The future is an unknown. It’s a mystery, and it will challenge you. It will be a journey that takes time to complete, but this is okay because what’s important isn’t how long it takes you to get there—it’s that you keep moving forward with confidence and conviction.

The future is not only the destination but also the decision that got me there in the first place. The choice I made was to be honest with myself about where I am right now and acknowledge who I am at my core: someone who wants to grow personally so they can face life with confidence instead of fear or anxiety.

Peace of mind in spite of circumstances.

  • Peace of mind is a state of being. It’s a frame of mind where you are content and at peace with yourself and the world around you.
  • Peace of mind is a state of mind. It’s the ability to think clearly, make decisions, and stay focused in spite of any obstacles or circumstances that may be against you or your goals, no matter how difficult or impossible they seem at times.

An understanding heart above all else and love, forgiveness, and compassion unselfishly shared with others.

It’s a hard truth to accept, but we all have different experiences that shape who we are and what we believe. What you see as compassion, someone else may see as weakness or even cowardice. And while we’re on this earth it’s impossible to make everyone happy. But what I’ve learned over the years is that there are ways to be compassionate without sacrificing yourself in the process.

First and foremost, you must remember that everyone has their own problems and burdens they carry with them every day—and those problems don’t magically disappear just because someone else doesn’t understand yours. There will always be people out there who don’t get your struggles; they may not even want to try seeing things from your perspective because it makes them uncomfortable or inconvenienced in some way (and let’s face it: if someone hasn’t taken time out of their day just now and again then maybe they shouldn’t expect anyone else too). But there is no reason why one person should take on all these responsibilities by themselves; there’s strength in numbers! Don’t forget about family members or friends who might also share similar struggles with you; don’t shut down opportunities for support just because things didn’t work out once before (or twice). This is about building relationships so don’t give up after one bad experience!

Life is a series of great challenges, weeds are inevitable but a beautiful garden can be made!

Life is a series of great challenges, weeds are inevitable but a beautiful garden can be made!

Life is like a garden, it takes work to make it beautiful. Weeds are a part of life, but they do not define it.

Great people have always found ways to overcome and rise above their circumstances, even in the most dire situations. You are one such person!
