What Makes You Stronger Isn’t What You Think
This doesn’t make any sense… I mean, nobody likes this and most of us run from this!
What is it? Hard times!
Nobody likes to suffer. But did you know that hard times can make us stronger? They’re disruptive, they create change and let’s be honest – none of us like change!! We would do the same ol’, same ol’ day after day, even if it’s not working.
Because we hate change! We have a built-in resistance to change.
But adversity gives us the opportunity to grow, to become stronger and better.

“You’re Not Connecting With Us!”
I was talking to my hubby about this the other day and he was telling me how hard it was to have our five kids tell him:
“You’re not connecting with us!”
This was over a season where they had multiple conversations about…
“Well, how can I get better at this? Tell me what I’m doing because I don’t know how to change this!”
Eventually, he figured out that he needed to listen more. He needed to stop fixing things (a hard one to do if you’re a natural fixer!). And then he realized he needed to stop giving them “the look”…
Those difficult conversations, as hard as they were, made him stronger and better.
To quote Warren W. Wiersbe, “Bumps are the things we climb on”… hard times are things we can climb on.

Stress Helps Potatoes Grow… And It Can Help You Too
Now, when potatoes are near the end of their growth cycle (my hubby’s a potato farmer)… we hit those potato tops with an element called Boron. That causes stress to the green tops, which then pushes all of the energy into the tubers or the potatoes that you eat.
That stress makes the potatoes better, bigger and stronger. It helps them to bulk up.
I believe that adversity does the same thing for us! It helps us to grow, to change and become better.
Throughout this current adversity, I’ve come to appreciate the simple things in life… like the smell of a newborn baby! I’m missing my newborn grandbaby. I’ve come to appreciate so much more the time I get to spend with family and friends.
You know, “pressure on the outside should make us bigger on the inside,” says Warren W. Wiersbe.
