Mirror Mirror ~ Courage in Suffering

Introspection — what better way to start a week.

Question – Have you thanked yourself for the courage it took to withstand the suffering you lived through?

Many of us that came through severe and lasting childhood traumas don’t make it out alive. Suicide is real in our world – very real. The moment that we feel our suffering is overtaking us we contemplate how to end it. How does it end if not through death?

I have had those thoughts throughout my life.

If you are reading this today, you are still standing. You made it out this far. You should reflect on the courage that took. A magnitude of suffering takes its toll on a person.

When that courage seems to be running out, cling to Jesus. Paul tells us in Ephesians 3:12, “In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” This is my secret power — approaching God.

Reflect today on thanking yourself for the courage it took to make it!
