On Saturday I attended a woman’s conference working as an advocate for Compassion UK. It was a great day and before I left 6 children had been lifted out of poverty in Jesus name. 6 with new sponsors and at the beginning of a new life.
The guest speaker for the conference was Jeff Lucas. I had read a few of Jeff’s books but have never heard him speak before.
To be honest he was pretty amazing. He challenges you in a way that leaves you wanting, no needing to do more.
To challenge yourself to live the best life you can.
One statement he left us with was
” There are no strong people just people with strengths.”
This really hit home as I find myself at this time not feeling strong at all.
Yet some how I move forward.
Somehow I find the strength to face what’s coming.
I have strengths
I have weaknesses.
They are mine and mine to own.
They are what makes me unique.
The building blocks in the tower of my life.
I may not be strong but I have strengths.
The strength from the love of my children.
The strength from the love of my husband.
The strength from my friends.
The strength from my faith.
I am not always strong but I have strength.
