Advent 16 – Strong

20131217-095322.jpg Strength is measured in a lot of ways… physical, mental, emotional.

There is a silent strength that amazes me, however.  The sort of strength that digs deeply into faith and hope – no matter how desperate (or easy) the surrounding circumstances.  The sort of strength that allows others to be strong around them.  The sort of strength that inspires others to stand courageously, without ever intentionally calling attention to oneself.

This kind of strength requires deep stamina in every realm and is revealed most often in those hearts where faith, hope and love abide, where the Spirit of God is at work.
