Good morning, Overcomers! It’s a great day!
I have a question for you. Have you ever felt drained? Have you ever felt like you have nothing left?
Maybe you’re struggling with depression. Maybe you’re sick and you’re tired of being sick. Maybe you are “broke” and broken, and you’re wondering when things will turn around for you. Maybe you’re wondering if things will ever turn around for you.
You are not alone. I want to challenge you to press on. The good news is that you don’t have to do it in your own strength.
Grace, defined by Webster, is unmerited divine assistance. Grace gives you the strength to accomplish the will of God for your life. It gives you the strength to endure temporary setbacks until things get better.
When life drains you, run to God, he will not allow you to become depleted. He will refill you and give you the strength you need to make it.
Remember, you are an overcomer! An overcomer defeats obstacles! You’re a winner!
I recall being in the depth of depression, anxiety, and having suicidal thoughts and attempts. It drains you of your will to go forward, or to even hope for better. I encourage you to ask God to strengthen you. He will do it.
Thought for today:
Taken from 2 Corinthians 12:7-10:
“Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.”
