When I reflect on my life, there have been numerous times that I have been required to be strong. One Scripture that helped navigate those times was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” It wasn’t about me being strong as much as it was about the One who was tirelessly carrying me through. Especially in those heartbreaking times of loss and disappointment, the boundless flow of grace sustained me. There is a beautiful phrase from West Kerry, Ireland where you say, “Mo sheasamh ort lá na choise tinne,” “You are the place where I stand on the day when my feet are sore.” That is what we can be for each other and that is what God can be for us.
