Survivor

So, you have hit a bump in the road. The plans you have set for your self are not going exactly how YOU thought they would. So, instead of viewing the trials as an opportunity to become triumphant, you are sitting there doubting your purpose and lacking motivation. You have started wasting time entertaining negativity, and quite frankly you are not being productive. Instead, you are defeated, tired, and burnt out. Well, news flash! Obstacles come, disappointments arise, and sorrow may overwhelm you. But, just like a hurdle each and everyone of them can be overcome if you make the determination within yourself to CLIMB over it. I found a quote in my agenda planner by Will Rogers that really resonated with me,“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Sometimes it may seem like you are raking leaves on a windy day and you are unable to see any progress. Every time you get a little bit done, something happens and you are back at square one. Please do not let this discourage you. Instead, realize that when God breathes purpose and vision into you, a little hit cannot stop you. It is almost like when you have run a long distance and begin to lose your breath. Sometimes we become so frustrated and say, “I can’t breathe.” But, truthfully if you could not breathe you would not be alive, and thus unable to utter those the words. Instead, you have to use more strength to inhale and exhale, take a few moments to recuperate, and keep going.

It is the same concept when you encounter an issue and you say to yourself, “I can’t do it.” Actually, you can. Part of the solution is adopting the mindset of a SURVIVOR. So say this with me, “I am a survivor. I will not succumb to my circumstances! I will overcome this and I am determined to be stronger than ever in the end.”

Keep Climbing,
