Music Mondays: Sustaining Strength Under Fire

music-mondays-strength-under-fire-angie-stone #musicmondays #encouragementStrength under fire is a difficult thing to have. I know because I deal with it every day, all of the time. Yet even in the most strenuous situations, I know that I cannot give up. Stuff gets hard, but I have to believe that if I keep my strength intact, I can make it.


Strength can be a funny thing. In your weakest moments, it can appear out of nowhere to save you from caving to life’s sometimes insurmountable pressures. Strength can guide you—it can also heal you. At times when life seems to be at its worst, it is the strength under fire that gives you the power within that is needed to keep fighting on.


SRENGTH (strngkth, strngth, strnth) n.

1. The state, property, or quality of being strong.

2. The power to resist attack; impregnability.

3. The power to resist strain or stress; durability.

4. The ability to maintain a moral or intellectual position firmly.

5. Capacity or potential for effective action: a show of strength.

I know that it can be a difficult thing to do sometimes, but when your problems weigh you down and you try to push along but it seems that it’s too far to go, continue to remind yourself that troubles—like everything else in life—do not last always. You just have to exercise your strength and optimism with everything that you have within you.


There is not a person alive that has not had a time in their life where they were forced to endure some hard times. Not one. Every single person on this Earth has had to walk through the fire at one time or another (and if they have not done so yet, trust me—they will). It is not the fire that deters or blocks you from brighter days—rather it is your strength under fire and state of mind during the journey that determines your ultimate outcome.


You know where you want to go, you know where you want to be, and you know the outcome that you desire. Do away with any type of negative emotions, thoughts, and influences, and walk in your strength to do the things you know you need to do to get to where you want to be.


I want to encourage you that no matter what is going on around you, if you believe that you can survive it then you will.


Repeat this to yourself right now:


“I AM going to make it – I AM going to make it – I AM going to make it!”



Keep your head up—you are stronger than you think.
