While my younger self would recoil at this thought, I have learned to be grateful for adversity, which has not only strengthened my faith, but has taught me to be more compassionate, patient, and resilient. I used to recoil when people chirped, “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger,” but I now know that God has always seen me safely through fear and pain.
Let Us Pray:
Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
Perhaps you can list 2–3 things, people, or aspects
of your life for which you are thankful today.
