We all need resilience to live a fulfilling life. With resilience, you’ll be more prepared to take on challenges, to develop your talents, skills, and abilities so that you can live with more purpose and more joy. — Eric Greitens
Learning to deal with:
Resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. Resilience comes from believing in yourself, but most of all believing in God and the Lord Jesus. It’s not a trait people are born with. It involves learning to deal with behavior, thoughts, and actions — developing these things.
Here are a few ways to develop your resilience. Resilient people don’t try to solve problems with the same thinking that created them. In other words, resilient people don’t make the same mistake again and again. Resilient people have learned that life is not what happens to us but what happens within us. Resilient people keep giving. They find a way to serve others even in the toughest of times. They remain selfless.
Rejoice in the Lord:
So, we can learn to be more resilient if we want to. In Habakkuk 3:17-18, it talks about even though I lose everything, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will be joyful in the God of my salvation.
Tough times never last, but tough people do. We can grow and become more resilient if we believe and serve the Lord.
