When we emerge from trials or hardship, we may notice that we are different. We aren’t quite the person we were. There is a steel in our spine, a fire in our soul that maybe we hadn’t noticed before. Our God is able to turn even difficult times into sources of blessing and joy that we can celebrate together. Make no mistake: the challenges we face are strong. But no matter what happens we can throw our heads back and laugh because through him, we are STRONGER.
