Amy Ivey shared this with me Wednesday night...
from the book "Woman of Influence" by Pam Farrel.

Jill briscoe spoke with a woman from the killing fields of cambodia. The woman had lost many of her family members as victims of genocide. "you in the West, when trouble comes, say, get this off my back, God. We in the East say, strengthen my back to bear it , God."

Ouch! This is a perspective that I am guilty of not always having. I really had my toes stepped on. So many times I just want it gone, not something to be strenghtened by, but rather deliver from.

May we seek the strenghtening to bear the burdens we face.

Isaiah 40:29 says, "He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.
