The most amazing thing happened to me just now as I was sitting down to write my post for the week. My thoughts all last week was about being an OVERCOMER. I had been hearing a song on the radio but I could never catch who sang the song. So just now I went to Google to get the Webster definition of the word overcomer, which by the way means: to defeat (someone or something): to successfully deal with or gain control of (something difficult): Anyways, the first thing on the search result was this song that I have been hearing all week on the radio. “Overcomer” by Mandisa. I busted into tears like a big ole baby .OMG! I have been looking for this song all week!! You see how God works? At the appointed time he allowed me to find the song now I can’t stop playing it...Lol I digress…
I reflected on my life this past 19 months and I realized that I have come so far by the grace of God. So much good things are happening in my life and I take God for it. I will not beat myself up over it because I deserve it!! So do not all the devil to make you feel as if you do not deserve good things in your life! You are worth it! Remember that!
One day last week after I got off work, I went to pick up my son at daycare; I stood by the window of his classroom watching him play, I was filled with emotion as I was remembering the struggle I faced before, during and after his birth.
My son was a preemie, he came almost two months early due to the stress and emotional turmoil I was going through. But as watched him play, I saw no sign of his early birth all I saw was a strong, happy boy full of life! At that moment, forgot about the days and nights I struggled to take care of him. The pain of being all alone, with no help in sight. The 5am treks to the bus in freezing temperatures just to drop him off with a stranger, so that I could work just months after giving birth via C-section. I will never trade those days for anything. It has made me stronger and an OVERCOMER. I share pieces of me to encourage others. Know that you are not alone, he is your footprint in the sand and you too are an overcomer.
Every single one of us are an overcomer believe it or not! There is something in your life that you were able to overcome. Do not doubt yourself, appreciate the process because bigger and better things await you!
I thank God every day for the grace and strength he has given me. For being the FOOTPRINT in the sand. The battle is far from over but right now, I am an OVERCOMER!!!
Peace and love! Rock steady!
