Lately, I’ve come to realise that strength is not a function of your physical build but a product of the state of your mind. Some people are physically endowed yet weak in their minds. Others aren’t that endowed yet strong in their minds.
A preacher once told the story of an experience and observation he made during a hurricane. It was a tale of resilience in the face of a raging storm. And this was about a palm tree defying the brutal force of a hurricane. As the strong wind currents traveled, it made a dash across the city landscape collapsing and destroying houses, uprooting infrastructures and all kinds of trees…but one. The palm tree resisted and withstood the pressures from all around its vicinity.
