If you had made yourself, you would be toast.

But you didn’t.

The One who made you—He knew every challenge you would meet, your faults and weaknesses. He was the one who put them there.

And for each brick wall you would hit, He provided you a ladder. For every chasm of your soul, a bridge to walk over. For each mountain you would have to climb, a reservoir of strength to surprise even your own self.

When a challenge arises, you need only imagine what it must take to overcome—and you can be confident that strength is within you.
