Faith Overcomes

“. . . for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:4-5 (NIV)

As we mature in Christ, we more easily accept what He tells us and we grow closer to Him. For me, this has a special meaning. For me, things of this world are just that, things. Now, please, don’t misunderstand me. I know we have certain possessions that are basic to living safely. I know we aren't to get attached to them. These products serve a purpose and break down. But we shouldn't act defeated when this happens; our faith is not in that equipment but in the LORD.

Faith Statement My life is not my own. I belong to Christ.


  1. I like this, especially the faith statement. I need to remember my life is not my own

    1. Jeanette:
      Thank you for stopping in. We have times where we have to remember that we belong to Jesus.

  2. Good faith statement Cecelia, need to be reminded all the time!

    1. Thank you, Marja. We do have to be reminded of this fact because we are human.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
