It is the kind of strength that Jesus demonstrated every day as He made his way to the cross.
“So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Colossians 3:12-14 MSG
The life that God has called you to live requires a quiet strength and a steely determination.
He has called AND equipped you to live it.
You can’t do it without God’s power and He doesn’t ask you to.
Lean on Him and keep going.
