19th Century Surgeon Julius Wolff developed Wolff's Law.
Wolff's Law states that bones in a healthy animal will adapt to the load under which they are placed. This means that if you put bones under pressure they will get stronger and if there is no pressure, they will become weaker.
As the writer Ernest Hemmingway said, "Life breaks everyone, and afterward, many are stronger at the broken places."
Applying Wolff's Law to the difficulties we experience in our lives, we never really know how strong a person is because they are capable of adapting to the heavy burdens of life.
As much as we dislike the pressures in our lives, they keep us focused and on guard for potential hazards.
Sometimes the greatest dangers we face in life are not obstacles, but an uninterrupted bounty of no pain, no suffering, and no troubles.
Grace is goodwill that cannot be earned and is given freely. We count on grace to build substantial relationships with ourselves, our friends, and our Creator.
Without grace burdens break us, with grace they bend us toward the traits, qualities, and people who can help us.
We need difficulties in our lives to make us stronger, more determined, and more resolute. But we also need the benevolence of each other when life is about to break us.
Please leave me a comment about your thoughts on the importance of having demands in our lives and what those do to make us better.
