I haven’t done a blog post in such a long time! That is mostly because it’s summer, and I’ve been busy enjoying the gorgeous weather! Speaking of summer, if you guys would like to see me do a summer series on my blog, comment “Summer series 2018” below this post. I will post all things summer from recipes and hairstyles, to DIY’s and activities, a summer bucket list, wherever it takes me! Now let’s get into today’s post:

So obviously you came here to read more on this title Strength. I wrote this essay during this past school year and wanted to share it. It just goes into a deeper definition on the word strength and hopefully inspires those, “Huh, I’ve never thought about it like that before” moment.

The word “strength” has many definitions, and many uses in a sentence. Two definitions I like the most would be, “The capacity to resist attack, strain, or stress; durability. Moral or intellectual power.” Let’s put that last definition first and put it all in sentence form. “If we have moral and intellectual power, we can have the capacity to resist attack, strain or stress.” This, in a way, means the first step to strength is moral or intellectual power. If you have no morals or standards or rules, where you stand on certain issues would constantly be changing; with no morals, you will find many problems arise in your life, causing strain and stress, which is the opposite of strength. Of course, there is also physical strength, and the first step to that would be exercise. “The capacity to resist some force”, could be a definition for all uses of the word strength. The Bible gives us many verses about strength too; Exodus 15:2 says, “The Lord is my strength and my song…” which makes sense because the Lord has the capacity to resist all forces. Deuteronomy 11:8 also says, “Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that he may be strong…” This use of the word strength is referring to the intellectual power. It’s a fairly simple equation: know more of God’s commands = more strength; the more you know, the more strength you get. We all could use more durability in life, and we all could do without the stress and strain. The good news is, there are many ways to increase our capacity towards these different forces, but the most reliable is Jesus. So just remember that He is our strength, spiritually. His capacity and intellectual power is infinite. If our God is with us, who can stand against?

Again, thanks for stopping by. I hope that this was an encouragement to you or maybe just an inspirational read! Remember to comment “Summer series 2018” if you would like to see one here on my blog!

Until next time,
