Today’s Words for the Week from Faith Thought of the Day by Ray Lammie.
Deep down, true survivors know they’ll win. As a U.S. Special Forces trainer said: “If you have a guy with all the survival training in the world who has a negative attitude, and a guy who doesn’t have a clue but has a positive attitude, I guarantee you the guy with a positive attitude is coming out of the woods alive!”
A survivor never, never gives up because nothing is impossible with God. A survival experience is an incomparable gift. “It will tell you who you really are.”
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God (Luke 18:27).
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. — Helen Keller
Waves are getting higher,
really getting tense;
they say that I’ll expire,
and it’s odds against.
But they do not know me,
have no insight to my heart.
Where others choose to take a knee,
that’s just where I start.
You’ve got to start from somewhere,
even if you’re in the pit,
and you have to always care,
and never, ever quit,
for if it’s war or if it’s cancer
it’s grit that holds the final answer.
You have plenty of grit … maybe the definition. Peace,brother.
I definitely consider myself a survivor. I have survived a war (Vietnam), I have survived cancer, and I was electrocuted, died a physical death, had a NDE and out of body experience, and then returned to my body. Somehow, we find the courage within to overcome some kind of problem we have, and just keep going.
Just like the Energizer bunny. Happy New Year
