Hard Times

The hard days are what make you stronger. (Aly Raisman, former Olympic gymnast)

No one really likes the hard days even though they may make us better people. Author Tim Kight suggests an important factor about those hard times: “The way you respond has an impact on the people around you. Your response is deeply personal but is rarely private.” When we allow those hard times to make us stronger, we can really be a help to others in their hard times.

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. (Ecclesiastes 7:14) So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord! (Psalm 31:24)
