Spirit 24 April 2017

No matter what we come up against, that spirit inside of us will carry us along, or at least we’ll stumble along which still counts. I think the human spirit is one of the strongest threads in the universe because we overcome so much adversity.

There is something about grit, determination, pull yourself back up and get going, and just out-and-out stubbornness that gets us through tough times. Of course, some go through trials and frustrations with more grace than others, but what does it matter?

In the end, we shine like the beacon at the top of the lighthouse to others when we persevere and continue to reach for our goals and passions. The most important thing is to come through with our ability to love intact. That spirit takes us where we need to go. That spirit helps us get out of bed and face the day, even the one filled with grief.

That spirit lifts our face to the sunrise and brings us to the new beginning. That spirit straightens our spine when we face unfair criticism. That spirit makes our voice strong in front of a larger crowd than we anticipated. That spirit helps us try over and over again until we get it right. That is our spirit-gift of God.
