If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.
Proverbs 24:10

Walt Disney made dreams come true, but he occasionally encountered some nightmares of his own---times when everything went wrong for him. Out of his struggles he developed an optimistic philosophy. "All the adversity I've had in my life," he said, "all the troubles and obstacles have strengthened me."
The strengthening power of adversity is universally true. Football teams don't win without opposition. Wisdom isn't gained without mistakes. Leaders don't rise to greatness without crises and tough times
After reading several hundred biographies during his adult life, Andy Andrews said he came to one conclusion: Adversity builds emotional muscle, creates reliable leaders, and prepares us for greatness. Don't faint in the day of adversity. Remember your ABC's--Adversity Builds Character. The Lord draws near to us in tough times and helps us trust Him in day of difficulty. Hardship is sometimes a help to holiness, and roadblocks are signposts directing us in a better way. Lean on the Lord in adversity, learn from Him, and let Him lead you through it.
