“In all these things we are more than conquerors.” Ro 8:37 NKJV

 

If you conclude that your best days are over—they are. If you think they’re ahead—they are. After losing his job with a Fortune 500 company, Leonard was fearful and depressed. Then it occurred to him that if he gave up, what would he be teaching his son? If he didn’t overcome his challenges, his son would learn to let his challenges beat him. Leonard was determined to show him that although his dad got knocked down, he could get back up. So he dug out his résumé and called his friends to tell them he needed a job. Several months and many interviews later, he had four job offers, and now works for a company that values his talent. When harvesting potatoes, Idaho farmers would sort them according to size: small, medium, and large. Yet a particular farmer who didn’t follow this practice made more money than the rest. Puzzled, a neighbor asked, “What’s your secret?” “Simple,” he replied. “I load my wagon and take the roughest road to town. During the trip the small potatoes fall to the bottom, the medium ones settle in the middle, and the big potatoes rise to the top.” The same is true of people. On the bumpy road of life, big potatoes rise to the top. Jon Gordon says: “Regardless of the adversity you face, your purpose must be greater than your challenges. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your purpose. Instead of seeing yourself as a victim, see yourself as a hero. Heroes and victims both get knocked down, but heroes get back up, and armed with faith, they create a positive future.”
