Reaching Deep Within

I said it twice at the hospital this weekend. Two different patients.

Both had life-changing injuries. Both were talking about where they are today, and unsure about their futures. (Been there done that... and have walked beside others going through life-changing events.)

I found myself saying three things:

1. Reach deep within yourself to find the strength that is greater than your own.

2. Allow others to help you.

3. The only sure way to fail is to stop trying right now.

As I heard the words come out of my mouth I realized they apply to me as well - in my everyday life, with my everyday challenges.

Lord, help me to remember these things (without a life crisis!), and DO them.
