Choose to be an OVERCOMER
As I write this, my hands are shaking from a mixture of anxiety, too much coffee, and not enough sleep. Big changes are coming to our family (I will disclose as soon as I can--hopefully by next week's email) and changes--even super good ones, can make someone like me go a little crazy (please tell me I am not the only one!)
But…through all of the wild thoughts going through my head today, I felt God give me a small simple word from Him.
" You are an overcomer. You can do it. You were made for this."
Yep. There it is. The tears are coming again.
Do you ever let yourself believe that you were created to do hard things? Or do you let yourself listen to the negative voice in your head telling you that you aren't good enough? Strong enough? Pretty enough? Smart enough?
I have to let you in on a little secret.
God created you with special talents, the perfect looks (He didn't mess up!!), and the strength to do hard things. He made you able to conquer your fears and do things that you didn't even know you could do.
So instead of being afraid of the unknown, I want to encourage you to run straight at it with courage--it could be the best thing that ever happened to you!! You might even surprise yourself.
Choose today to overcome the past, the pain, the hurt, and forgive, forget, and move on towards a better version of you. Sounds simple huh?!
If only it was just that easy.
There is only ONE who can help you overcome all of your "issues" (because we all have them right?!) That is Jesus Christ. He alone can heal, hold, and help you become the person that you were born to be.
This verse hit home this morning with me, I hope it encourages and lifts you up as well.
Let's go change the world!
