How Do You See Yourself

Defeatists see themselves as whooped, flat, ‘down and out’ with no hope of change.

Overcomers see themselves as eventually winning, succeeding, crossing the victory line with sweat running down their faces.

Who are you?

It’s easy to feel defeated.  Surrounded by problems, tragedy and loss.

It’s easy to be discouraged and think that failure is your middle name.

It’s all too easy to join the ranks of the down and outers

thinking that it can’t possibly happen.

But aligning yourself with truth – His Truth- makes all the difference.

He says that we are overcomers – ‘for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.’ I John 5:4 NIV

By letting that change your mindset

letting it permeate your very being

seeing yourself connected with the very One Who overcomes the harshest reality

again and again and again

changes everything.

dark to light

sadness to joy

poverty to riches

You are an overcomer. Seize that truth for today and face each challenge knowing the truth.

Orphans becoming chosen

Blind now seeing

Deaf hearing for the first time.  The lame running. Proclaiming His Glory.

Arise today knowing who He has made you to be

and live each moment with gusto.

Today is the day.

Your day.

His day to show victory in this dreary, helpless and hopeless world.

Let Him do it through you., won’t you?

Dance, my friend, and claim your true identity.

Let me know how it’s going so that I can cheer for you.

Arise and overcome.
