  • Valor

    Man seldom recognizes the need for adversity. Few have eyes to see its worth. For out of the ashes of adversity arises a man of valor. The noblest of men, putting forth a valiant effort to achieve great deeds. Boldly he presses on to obtain all he was once told he could not. A man tested by fire, wearing his scars like a badge of honor. It is for the betterment of mankind he deems his struggles worth it. It is his recognition of this that makes him great. Humility graces his head like a crown, radiant as the sun. For what good is it for a man to succeed if he is not made a better man than yesterday? And what good is it for a man’s perception of himself to be clouded by undeserved merits? No, it is a man’s character that outweighs them all. A man is only made great by the measure of his character, and adversity is the first stepping stone because it is here a man decides where he will go.

  • Jesus said “I Have Overcome The World”

    John 16:33(NIV)
    “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    In life things may not always go the way you want them to. Jesus said in this life you will have many troubles, but take heart for I have overcome the world. Which means that no matter what hardships come in your way He will uphold you and give you the strength to not only get through it, but to overcome it as well. We can have the victory over the the things that come against us because Jesus conquered them all when He died on the cross and rose again on the third day. God has provided for us a Saviour so that we can have eternal life and He provides for our physical needs daily. In Jesus we are truly blessed, because in Him we have all we need. Praise God for all He has done for us and for His unending Love.
