Your struggles develop your strengths

Dutch version / Nederlands > Uw strijd ontwikkelt uw sterke punten


"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

- Arnold Schwarzenegger

"Prosperity discovers vice, adversity discovers virtue."
- Francis Bacon

"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Peter 1:5-8

Lord God, I am grateful that Jesus has conquered death for me.
Give me that I have the perseverance to surmount the difficulties of this world to overcome.
Let me always walk virtuous by the life in Christ Jesus' name, Amen.
