You are Stronger than you Know

In the depths of every wound we have survived, is the strength we need to live.” – Unknown

You have what it takes to fight this battle.

For within you there is a reservoir of strength. A courage and resiliency you only know is there when you’re forced to face hard things. Things you didn’t want to face.

And when you’re forced to face these hard things, you discover you’re enough. For within you are reserves that you never knew you had.

You’re tenacious and resourceful. You are capable and brave.

You have grit. Determination. Unexpected self-belief.  

And when it feels relentless, and the battle is intense … and when you’re faced with setbacks, and the pressure is immense …

You keep on pushing onwards. You will not give up the fight. You won’t succumb to pressure. You are going to survive.

And though it feels unending, you keep clinging on to hope …

For inside you there’s a warrior who is never giving up.

  1. As a completer of two marathons and three half-marathons, I concur there is always hope! This transfers over to emotional and spiritual “marathons” as well. We need to put in the “training” (therapy, accountability, support groups), but healing and complete restoration (well, close enough)❤️‍🩹 are possible.

    • Wow. I’m impressed by your fitness level. Achieving goals like those takes a lot of training and perseverance! And, yes, healing doesn’t happen on its own. there are a lot of steps and a lot of hard work in the recovery journey. Thanks for sharing David 🙂

      • All my long distance running accomplishments are pre-COVID. I am no longer at that fitness level. But I know I could do it again—with proper training. Success builds confidence and resilience.


  2. “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1).” Thanks for cheering us on.

  3. Thank you for sharing this today, Ann. This is a message I really needed to hear right now. I feel as if I’m not going to survive my therapist leaving or rather me leaving her as my allocated time with her is up. Right now, I can’t see that I will be strong enough to survive this separation. I will read your words again before that time comes. Xx 💗
