“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” That’s an old saying that Kelly Clarkson has used to write a great song. In the chorus she says:
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,
Stand a little taller,
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone.
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter,
Footsteps even lighter,
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone.
You gotta love her fighting attitude. Her life’s not going to be over just because her guy left her. She’s going to move on and be stronger for it. But…it’s not always that way. It’s not always that easy. Sometimes, it’s complicated. How do you deal with life when you don’t feel like you can go on?
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you. Deuteronomy 31
It takes courage to face the trials and bad situations of the world. God realizes that courage may not come as readily as Kelly Clarkson’s. He can give you the strength to face life. It’s the ability to react, knowing that God has your back, that makes it possible. Hey, if you need it, God will take the lead, he’ll go on ahead of you! God is stronger than anything in this world.
If you go through a bad situation, I hope you’re the fighter Kelly Clarkson wrote about. But, if that’s just not you or it’s just not your day, God can cover you any which way you look. He will not fail or abandon you.
