“What Doesn’t Kill You,” SPIRIT Xtra for February 26, 2012

“What Doesn’t Kill You,” Kelly Clarkson, Stronger, 19 Recordings Limited

Gospel Reflection: The solitude of the desert tested Jesus. Our relationships can test our values and make us struggle with what we really want.  “What Doesn’t Kill You” is a song about one of those relationships and how surviving a test can make us stronger.

Key Lines: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger/Stand a little taller/Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone/What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter/Footsteps even lighter/Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

Questions: What relationships have made you stronger? In what ways do relationships test you? What are some good things about spending time alone? Why do you think people are often afraid of being alone? How can spending time alone help your spirituality?
