“Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.'”
~ Ann Landers
Hold your head high.
Some days it feels like I’m holding on for dear life; other days it feels like fear is holding on to me. But I make the conscious choice to decide that the troubles will not capture or defeat me.
I’m not going to write about those troubles or give them any publicity!
Instead I’m going to hold them hostage and force them to listen to my blessings:
I am blessed to be a child of the Almighty God.
I am blessed to be able to love and be loved.
I am blessed to have daily bread.
I am blessed to be able to hold on, regardless of the troubles, because I believe that God has it all under control even when I know that I do not.
I choose to hold onto faith rather than fear.
How about you? What are you holding onto?
