The Lord is my strength and my impenetrable shield my heart trust in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. - Psalm 28:7
Do you ever find yourself searching within, delving deep into the very core of your being for that untold force we allude to as strength? The strength to stand resolute in the face of trial, to withstand the waves of circumstance, to move when fear seeks to hold us captive, to stay in the place to which we are called though restlessness demands we move on, to be silent when words threaten to erupt, and to challenge where challenge is needed.
Strength is not something we outgrow, nor is it limited to a specific subset of people. Whereas physical strength may be taken from us in an instant, regardless of years of good habits, inner strength remains as long as—and to the extent to which—we choose to exercise it.
Our journey in life is a constant discovery of finding the strength within, and discovering what we are capable of. Strength is too often misunderstood, too often misapplied or misdirected, and too often underutilised.
Intent but not impatient, steadfast but not stubborn, powerful but not oppressive: strength is beautiful, exquisite. Though usually unveiled through testing in the fire and the pressure, the foundation is laid in the quiet—in the moments when we stop and are still before our strong and beautiful Creator. It may seem paradoxical at times, but what if we were to grasp the enormity of what strength truly means? What if we were aware of what rested inside of us?
Join with us at STRONGER – Sistas Women’s Conference 2018 – where together, we’ll discover more about our God, and the strength and peace he has for each one of us.
