God has created you to be a victor, not a victim. Jump-start your day by celebrating the very best that God has for you! These daily inspirations will help you grow in your relationship with the Lord and equip you to be everything God intends you to be. – Joel Osteen
Are you answering to something that you’re not? Quit giving your time and energy to those negative thoughts. That’s not who you are. When voices whisper that you’re washed up, guilty, unworthy, a failure, recognize what’s happening. They’re trying to rename you. When you hear, forgiven, redeemed, restored, that’s when you need to listen.
You are not who people call you. You are what you answer to. Answer to victorious, more than a conqueror, fearfully and wonderfully made.
We all have scars from mistakes we’ve made, maybe not physical, but invisible scars. We got off course. We gave into temptation, did things we’re not proud of, hung around people we didn’t feel good about, didn’t take care of our marriage. We could let those scars remind us of our failures, live guilty, down on ourselves.
Or we can let them remind us of the grace of God. God didn’t allow those scars so you could constantly think about your failures, your poor choices. He allowed them so you would think about His mercy, His forgiveness.
