Most people have a “someone” in their lives.
Someone taught them how to stand on their own two feet. Someone told them to pull their shoulders back and hold their head up. Taught them how to be loving, honest, kind, compassionate, strong and resilient, tough yet soft-hearted at the same time.
Someone taught them the importance of gratefulness, unconditional love, respect, and the value of looking people in the eyes and serving others no matter how high up the ladder they might be.
Here’s to the “someone” God placed in your life.
Maybe they whispered in your ear that crying was not a sign of weakness. It meant you were strong enough to know you couldn’t handle everything, but you could lean on God who could. Maybe they were used to remind you in the tough times that you were not crushed, not abandoned, and you would never be destroyed.
Someone was leading by example, and whether you realize it or not, you are most likely following in their footsteps one step at a time.
Let’s thank God for putting strong people in our lives who taught us valuable lessons about life, love and the power of Jesus Christ.
His mercy never fails.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; confused, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
