Resilience is the strength of character to keep going even when we encounter challenge. It can be grown or developed, like a muscle. Christians learn from the Bible how to keep going when seeking justice or serving others, knowing that they don’t have to do it alone. Growing in resilience is something we strive to do at St Paul's, it is one of our St Paul's Learners statements and we love to see it in each other at school.
TOGETHER, WE CAN ALL GROW IN RESILIENCE
Piper follows a little bird whose mother encourages it to learn to feed itself on a beach. The bird gets swept away by the tide but perseveres. This is an inspiring story shows that you need to be resilient through the harsh waters - that you can come out with something you didn't expect to get!
Take a moment to think of them now. You might like to say a prayer with your family if that is something you usually do.
Here is a prayer you could use:
Father God I know you hear me when I speak to you
Comfort me when things feel hard
Give me strength when I can’t keep going
Help me to know I am loved and valued
