The Attitude of an Overcomer

Today’s Verse: “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith” (I John 5:4, NIV).

Today’s Word:

Are you facing some challenges or experiencing some unexpected setbacks? We all have things that come against us, but God didn’t create us to be overwhelmed and overcome; He created us to be overcomers!

During those times when we do face challenges, it’s our attitude that is really most important. Think about it for a minute. When something isn’t going your way month after month, how do you respond? Are you tempted to get sour or start expecting the worst? Does your mind start going “ninety-to-nothing” playing out all the scenarios? It may be easy to get down and discouraged, but if we go around thinking it’s never going to work out, our attitude limits what God can do. But when we dig our heels in knowing that God is bigger than our problems and that He already has a way out, when we fight the good fight of faith, that’s what allows God to show up and turn negative situations around.

Today, remember, you are created to overcome. There is victory already in store for your future. Stand strong with the attitude of an overcomer and watch what God will do on your behalf!

Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, thank You for making me an overcomer in Christ Jesus. I trust that You are bigger than my problems and that You are working on my behalf. Thank You for the victory in store for my future! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Sleepless in Makati

I've been sleeping less and less again for almost a week now but I don't want to complain because I know I am not wasting those precious hours. But then health should be a priority also otherwise I'll be spending hard earned money for medicines or doctors and that is the last thing I want to happen. Maybe that is why others are keen on having health insurance. I don't have one except for the government health benefits that we are required to pay out of our salary which for sure is very far from the benefits of NC health insurance.

Today, we've been to two parties and right now I am still full so I don't want to sleep yet and I guess I won't be able to sleep with the two cups of coffee I just had hours ago.

I've finally finish the make over of my new domain, if you have time, please feel free to check it here.
