“The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have still found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ——Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
We cannot control the things that happen to us, but we can grow through the pain when bad things happen. There is a purpose, but you cannot see it yet. He will bring good out of the most difficult situations.
The struggle up the mountain is difficult and challenging, but at the top is a view that is unimaginable. Keep fighting the fight and win the race.
Overcoming struggles is what make us strong. We weren’t born brave. We develop it through trials, and sometimes those trials seem so unfair. I always try to remember this is not the world that God intended for us.
Rest in knowing you are being transformed. Every defeat that brought you down, the suffering that made you feel weak, the struggles to get through each day, and every loss that broke your heart will be used for good.
Who can you reach out to today with compassion and help them on their journey and bring beauty from your pain by helping others with your own experiences?
I hope you will do that this week because everyone needs to hear the encouraging, “You got this.”
“You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.”
Much Love & Many Prayers,
