Overcoming Adversity Develops Character

by Barbara Latta

Overcoming the stream  develops character

Difficult circumstances do not produce patience or character, rather overcoming situations is the catalyst that brings strength.

 A large stone in a running stream is smoothed and polished by the rushing water when the rock refuses to move. A stone that tumbles with the waves gets tossed about and is deposited in various places in the river only to be moved around again with the current.

Life can rush at us with a torrent of difficulties. Remaining firm in the Word will anchor us like a rock in a stream and we will overcome the situation rather than being overcome.
