Resilient—tending to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change. Resilience is a trait we are all developing right now. The early church followers and leaders developed it as well, and we are learning from them today. Resilience. Confidence. Joy. Boldness. What did they tap into in extreme times that led them to this posture? How can I draw on resilience as a follower of Jesus today? How do we develop resiliency? We stay in the fight. We may fall, but we get back up. Every day a better day, every breath a better breath. We seek to encounter God, and our lives are changed because of each encounter.
