Strength in Adversity

No one feels strong when overwhelmed with a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. But when adversity comes, in that period of waiting, of helplessness, we sense purpose. Sometimes that purpose is to accomplish nothing more than merely to survive, to push past, to conquer — but whatever it may be, with knowledge of purpose comes a dogged determination to face whatever it takes to fulfill that purpose. With purpose comes life. And when you’re determined to do anything to reach your goal, you’ll find that your life has more meaning than ever before. It’s not the adversity itself which makes you strong; it’s the purpose it plants in your heart and the direction it gives to your life.
