Victorious Living

2 Timothy 2:11-12 “For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us.”

To deny Christ would be to deny the very existence of myself, because He has not only given life, but walks with me daily that I may finish strong and give Him the glory. I thank God for His guidance, and protection even when I chose false shortcuts or strayed. I owe the One True God my life – my very breath. For He has done so much for me that I cannot tell it all!

I have traveled up hill and through rock-ridden paths to get here today. It has been no primrose path to be free, but I found strength through faith for the journey. Many along the way have supported and encouraged me with prayers as well. However, it is God alone who wrote my story from the very beginning -- before I was ever a thought or named. I thank God for His unique flare to write a story full of life, passion, and giving that has been uniquely mine. I can visualize how with one stroke of His hand my life journey begins and ends with a celebratory victory roar. Though He also foreknew of my struggles, challenges, and even failures in between He was merciful to underline each of them with His grace to keep me focused on the prize ahead -- my purpose in Christ Jesus.

Thus far my life story has meaning and purpose and there are witnesses to testify. Nevertheless, I am expecting more of His goodness and revelation knowledge that I may begin the next step towards my God-given destiny.

Yes, there is more!
