In the face? In the gut? Punched by LIFE???
Unfortunately ALL OF US have taken (or will take) a blow from life that completely knocks the wind out of us! The question is what happens next? Will we bounce back? Or will we stay “bent out of shape”? Will we become a victim…or a survivor? Will we become bitter…or wise???
This month at actionchurch were exploring the amazing human property of Resilience. The dictionary defines resilience as-“the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape,
the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.”
Jesus promised something even BETTER to his followers:
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.””
John 16:33 NLT
If you’ve ever been punched…or want to learn to take a punch (and get back up) you will not want to miss the “Resilience” series. Starts Sunday!
