Some of us have so many things to overcome in our lives.. The environments we’re raised in..The wounds scraped into us by those around.. Or could be the very personalities we’re born with.
Strengths and Weaknesses. We’ve all got ’em. And within them we also possess ‘gifts’ (1 Corinthians 12). The gifts given are not all the same, just as “we” are not all the same. Who wants a world where everyone is the exact same?! God is the ultimate designer/Creator. Just look around. Differing flowers, colors, skin types, animals, the list is long and varied. And gratefully so.
A friend shared this clip of an upcoming TV series. You wanna see the cheerleader in my little-momma-self come out?! Just show me a picture of a child who is pushing through the harshness of his world..and making it a brighter place to be for everyone around..
John 16:33 says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you WILL have trouble. But take heart! I. HAVE. OVERCOME. THE. WORLD.”
..and so can you, beloved..
