(John R. Brokhoff, Preaching the Miracles) When the Statue of Liberty was remodeled, it was discovered that the entire inside support system had to be replaced. The outside copper skin of the statue was okay; workers cleaned that and it was fine. The inner iron supports were corroded and rusting away however. If Without attention Liberty would have fallen in 20 years. Workers replaced the iron supports with stainless steel. Now it can withstand 125 mph winds. Brokhoff said, “A nation without inner supports of moral integrity is doomed to lose her liberty.” If we do not have support systems we risk losing strength and stability. Everyone needs support systems. How do you draw strength for the journey? If you don’t have a close spiritual advisor, mentor, friend, you may want to look for one.
