Everyday Heirloom's Resilience Necklace illustrates four total reed joints as the border and eight total reeds on the face of the pendant as a tangible guide to 2 Corinthians chapter four verse eight. These reeds bow into one another, united by a common wind, echoing a strength made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). Additionally, the number eight represents completeness and new beginnings – a process that resilience promises and a prayer that we might, “ let endurance, have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing (James 1:4)." 

We celebrate the work of our friend, Rebekah Lyons in her latest book, 'Building a Resilient Life,' now available for pre-order.

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; we are persecuted, but not abandoned; we are struck down, but not destroyed. Therefore, we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. For our momentary light affliction is producing for us, an absolutely incomparable, eternal weight of glory. 

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 & 16-17, CSB.

 “Resilience isn’t an unyielding will power that pushes through any obstacle or withstands any force. Resilience allows us to be flexible and adaptable. We bend but aren’t broken; we are wounded, but learn how to heal. Through Christ, we overcome, and are raised to new life. This is resilience.” Rebekah Lyons, Building a Resilient Life

A reed symbolizing true strength is a common theme found in historical literature in that the reed that bends with the wind is the one that survives. The reed as a symbol  has long-illustrated the idea that the hard and strong will fail  while the soft and weak will overcome. The greatest example we have of resilience and bending low to overcome is Christ, the Bruised Reed which we read in Isaiah 42:1-3 and again in Matthew 12:20. Our Suffering Servant promises hardship but extends courage, for He took on death and conquered the world (John 16:33).
