“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
– Galatians 6:2
As we seek to become resilient and less fragile in our walk with God, we should keep in mind that vulnerability and humility is a difficult task. Stop pretending to be perfect; it’s not going to help anyone. You don’t have to be vulnerable in front of everyone, but you should have a few individuals in your life who are familiar with both your good and bad sides. Be open and honest about the issues you’re dealing with, and you’ll grow stronger as a result. Try to be strong and tough if you want to be vulnerable and weak, and if you want to be powerful, be transparent, modest, and broken. Don’t feel ashamed of your vulnerabilities because the light of Jesus shines brightest and most brightly through the flaws.
Devote yourself to Him and spend time with Him. You must be a disciple, or a learner, who is disciplined and committed to knowing Jesus above all else if you are serious about eliminating worry and being truly anti-fragile. You will grow His resilience and agility as you spend time with Him, praying, thinking, reading, and studying His truth. So go for it! Make getting to know Him the most important portion of your day…more important than running errands, going to the gym, or checking social media. Prayer and relationship with God are like oxygen to your spiritual life; you need it to stay alive. Plus, the more you consume, the more you desire since it bears positive fruit in your life!
Friend, you’re more capable than you believe! Trouble is good for you, and the remedy for concern is realizing that God created you as an everlasting being destined to grow stronger in the face of adversity. You were designed to be anti-fragile, and as a vulnerable disciple who prioritizes spending time with Jesus, you will become even more so! Isn’t it wonderful news?
Jesus, thank you for loving me despite my difficulties and for strengthening me in my weaknesses while I spend time in your presence.
How has spending time with Jesus helped you become more resilient and anti-fragile?
