Depth of our Strength

It’s in tough times that we often discover the depth of our strength.

To do what seems impossible, all we need is submit our thoughts cares to a higher power. I call mine God.  At the same time, we should do our best to meet the challenge at hand. It feels good to look back and know that we faced our tough times, and grow from the experience. A quote that comes to mind is one by Emily Dickinson:

"We never know how high we are
'Til we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies." 
~ Emily Dickinson, American Poet ~

And for one of my all-time favourite verses, Isaiah 40:31:  "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
