The word “withstand” is taken from an old English word withstandan which means to “stand against.” It means to remain undamaged or unaffected by. It’s when you offer strong resistance to something or someone.

For a lot of us, we want to be like others who seem to be conquering life and achieving goals. We want to be like those who seem unaffected by life, but being that way seems so far from us. We feel like we’re struggling with every little thing. How could be ever be better than this?

This is why people often give up. It just seems too far a journey, and too long a process, to become that better version of themselves. Why bother? It’ll never work!

That’s why it’s important to learn how to stand, because for now, that’s all we can do. And that’s fine. There’s no shame in that. You’ll get stronger over time, but for now, you just need to withstand the storms.

That’s what I’m covering in this 5-message series, Resist: The Power to Withstand Life. Watch Episode 1 now:
