Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
It’s so good to be back, happy summer 2k17! I survived. Yeppers, I truly survived the fire and the flood and the hardship of a first year law student. It’s crazy to think about the essence of survival, fighting against all odds and making it out on the other side. To say that this year taught me a lot about myself, is an understatement! This school year was one of trial and tribulation, stretching and growth… I can truly say that I have grown as an individual.
There is something so fulfilling about survival…about making it through something that you envisioned taking you out. How rewarding is it to overcome??? To conquer what was designed to conquer you? In this moment I am reminded of the words of Jesus, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) When I read these words all I see is: no matter what, you’ll survive! To think that I can overcome anything is not only encouraging but empowering! Defeat does not live in the land of the Overcomer.
So today, I seek to encourage each of you to rise out of the valley of defeat and to choose to overcome. Don’t give up, don’t throw in the towel- survive and overcome that thing that seeks to overcome you!
Until next time,
