"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
(1 Timothy 6:12)
It is easy to get distracted especially when the issues of daily life present themselves. Our response to the challenges life brings is always more important than the actual event.
Each of those difficult moments or seasons is an obstacle that God permitted in our lives so we can learn the deeper secrets of how to overcome and enjoy surpassing victories. They are actually gifts that feel like disasters but are heaven’s hidden stepping-stones to becoming more like Christ, who overcame everything thrown against Him.
One of the most freeing things that can happen in our lives occurs when we learn to release the challenges that we face each day into the hands of Jesus and then ask Him to take care of them. Let go of the internal push to do things in our own strength and instead talk to the only One who can transform our circumstances.
When we model the grace of overcoming, we demonstrate hope to all those around us and we leave a lasting imprint on the lives within your circle of influence.
Have a wonderful day.
