The difference between those who thrive and those who give up lies in knowing who you are. You are not defined by your family ….. culture ….. or past. You are defined by your Maker! His unique plan for your life takes into consideration every challenge ….. obstacle ….. and mistake you may have made. So don’t use those as an excuse! You have what it takes to be an over comer because that’s who He made you to be.
‘we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.’ Romans 5:3-5
