The Biblical heroes were made strong out of weakness. They were not glaring examples of flawless character; yet they epitomized faith toward God. They may have felt weak, cried and suffered many afflictions, but they still made it! Even though they experienced failures and flaws, yet the dent in their amour didn’t affect their performance on the battle field. On the contrary, they were strengthened through struggles.
Walter Anderson rightly puts it thus, “Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.” In spite of all the struggles and hardship in 2016, if you are reading this piece, then it means you’ve escaped; you are a survival! Yes, you are a winner! So therefore, look forward, keep calm, and expect a victorious 2017. You’re a Hero! You’re winning! Yes, we are winning!
