I believe that saying sums up the after trauma ... the human will is strong
if you are inclined to trust in God you know you have the strength to get through anything.
As to your first part, true - though I think some of the strongest bonds are also born from the best in life.
The second, I could replace god with "myself" (and often do, though not in a narcissistic way ) - but that makes more sense to me. Trust in myself, and the strength that comes from it, and using it.
I liken it to this
our marriage bond is very strong, I thought the strongest until my injury
and then JB cared for me when I was bedridden and thought I would never walk again.
Those were dark hours and the bond that came from that
is more than we ever would have known if not that had happened.
This is true throughout life, loss of our loved ones, tragedies, this our true growth
and bond... when tested. Love is easy when life is easy ...
