The Wake Up Call

Struggle and trials will either crumble you or build you up depending on who/what you lean on. If you lean on the one and only Rock, you will become resilient.

Resiliency = the ability to find purpose & meaning in the midst of the storm

Struggles build muscle, like lifting weights. To build muscle, you need resistance! To build a spirtual & moral backbone, you need opposition!

Through opposition, we will acquire humility and learn to trust in God.

We have become complacent. We are too comfortable. Mother Teresa saw this a long time ago and for that reason called western christians some of the poorest people she had ever seen.

So dig deeper into The Word today. Get closer to God today. Let Him build your backbone and be prepared to defend your voice, the voice that so many want hushed!

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.… Be silent, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world. The Lord Almighty is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.
Psalm 46:1,10-11 NLT

Praise God in the midst of whatever storm you're going through!
