You Are An Overcomer

Keep calm.

Relax.

Breathe deep.

You are an overcomer as you put your trust in Him.

Whatever you are facing now

is small

compared to our God.

Whatever you are fearful of

is puny

compared to our God.

those thoughts that come

those  critical voices you hear

saying that you are not enough

you will never be enough

are lies.

All lies.

Quiet yourself and breathe in His Promises.

He has promised to never, never leave you

and you can count on Him.

So arise today.

Stand tall and face your fear.

Remember who you are – an overcomer.

And most of all,

Remember who He is.

The Great and Mighty God – your Defender, Provider,

and constant Strength.

He doesn’t change the way people do.

No, He is for you

and because He has already overcome

you have too.

It’s time to praise the Lord and dance for joy.

The victory is yours.

Me? An Overcomer?

Yes, that titles fits. Just the thought of me being an overcomer

brings a smile to my face and laughter within.

Me?

The one who long ago was so familiar with anxiety?

Fearful. Unsure. No self confidence.

Fast forward many years though.

I began to understand that being an overcomer is not about my lacks

but all about His greatness.

Being an overcomer is all about who I am

not how I feel.

It’s about all I have in Him.

It began with a slow shift in mindset.

Is that something you’ve always longed to have?

Weeks ago I was facing a difficult problem.

Wherever I turned there seemed to be no answer.

Closed doors.

Although the stress and strain drained my physical and emotional resources

I knew

that

somehow

somewhere

there was an answer

because He is the Answer.

Instead of reminding myself of what I couldn’t do

and what I didn’t have

I quietly began to speak the truth.

He is able.

He is more than enough.

He has never failed me yet.

Nothing changed

but then again

everything began to change.

My mindset shift opened me to begin to see possibilities

where before I had seen none.

I saw the Lord giving me all that I needed

instead of seeing myself as a victim of this circumstance.

“What do you want?” He gently asked

and I poured out my heart to Him.

His power

right there

met my need and all my fears gradually disappeared.

I began to act like an overcomer.

You? An overcomer?

Yes, He fully equips you and I aug 22 sunrise to be more than enough for any challenge that we face.

So how about you—

Have you longed to be an overcomer?

Would you like to discover how?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yes, nothing would thrill me more.

 

 

 

 

Moving Forward Anyway

Feeling defeated?

Scared?

Discouraged?

Overwhelmed by life’s circumstances?

 

How do you move forward when you’re stuck in this place?

Slowly.

Determinedly.

Confidently.

 

Right now take charge of your life and begin to move forward anyway

by following these 3 simple steps.

  1. Recognize what the fear is

Yes, call it by name. Write it down. Say it out loud. Whether a fear of flying or roller coasters, or beginning a small business. Pesky fears can eat at our confidence and destroy our sense of well being.  When God confronted Moses on the farside of the wilderness at Mount Horeb out of  the burning bush. (Exodus 3)  He broke through the ordinary and revealed His amazing Plan. But Moses was afraid.  What’s your fear?

 

  1. Ask yourself why it’s holding you back

Face it clearly. What’s been keeping your trapped? All too often our focus is on our own limitations and ourselves. We resist change and have a defeated mindset. But you can rise to the challenge and overcome by a choice to see things differently.

 

  1. Reset your mindset and begin to focus on the positive outcomes. Realize and embrace the resources you do have. Right now. He has promised to be with you. Always. No matter what.

You can do more than you think you can. You are more than you think you are. His power within you enables you to rise to new heights and accomplish more than you ever could in your own strength.

Ready to be an overcomer?

Victory

Courage
