Do You have Dreams and Aspirations...

All of us have dreams and aspirations in life that we want to come to pass.  The issue comes as to whether or not we are have what it takes to bring our dreams to a reality.  In this book Sheryl Brady (my pastor)  believes God wants us to peel away the layers we try to hide behind, dissolve the excuses we use as camouflage, and reveal the beauty of our true selves. By sharing her own life journey as well as examples from history and current culture, Pastor Brady encourages us to reconsider the way we see ourselves and to reframe our own understanding of how we got there.  Resilience is a movement today partly because of the knowledge I gained by reading this book.

“I Didn’t Know My Own Strength”
Whitney Houston





Whitney Houston reminds us that no matter what struggle we endure we are resilient enough to bounce back!  Here’s the thing, we may not think that we have what it takes to do it but WE DO!!!  Take it one day at a time, one step at a time, one moment at a time and we will come to find out we were not built to break……we didn’t know our own STRENGTH!!!!
