As the second anniversary of Ron’s passing drew near, family stresses accumulated at an alarming rate. Consequently, too much salt, sugar and pure junk assaulted my lips, only to land on my hips. But why bore you with details? The truth is, sometimes we all feel low on the totem-pole of life.
I dragged myself out of bed, and turned on the TV only to hear these words from Gloria Gaynor’s lips. “I’ll survive, I will survive!”
A survivor is somebody who shows a great will to live or a great determination to overcome difficulties and carry on.
Haven’t we? Won’t we continue to do so? After all, a temporary set-back is not an eternal failure. The only difference between a victim and a survivor is action!
Prayer- Lord, we approach your throne of grace with confidence, expecting and receiving mercy grace in our time of need. Amen. (from Hebrews 4:16, NIV)
