You can overcome the hard knock life by becoming "Resilient"

Posted on by Thomas Smith

I have been reading a book and sharing some with you all, called A Resilient life by Gordon MacDonald. It is really a transformative read.

I just want to share his "Resilient People..." defining statements from the book. I hope you will get a copy and fill in the meat for these>

Resilient People have a sense of life-direction. Resilient People forsee great questions of life. Resilient People cultivate their Christian Character. Resilient People listen for Gods call. Resilient People are confident in their gifts from God. Resilient People live generous lives. Resilient People know the importance of repairing the past.Resilient People respect the power of their memories. Resilient People practice repentance. Resilient People are quick to forgive. Resilient People overflow with gratitude. Resilient People squeeze the past for all its wisdom. Resilient People prepare for Life's emergencies. Resilient People know what has to be accomplished. Resilient People keep themselves physically fit. Resilient People grow their minds. Resilient People harness their emotions. Resilient People trim their egos. Resilient People open their hearts to God.

So I'm about 2/3 of the way down the list. I said transformative earlier but that's a small word.

Again I hope you will agree with God's desire to bless and grow you up in faith by reading it.

The tag quote on the cover says "you can move ahead no matter what" and that says it well about resilient people.
