What is it you are struggling with in life right now? Addiction, Anger & Resentments, Anxiety, Loneliness, any of these dominating your present situation?
Whatever it is, the answer from God is always, Yes You Can Overcome! One of the most frustrating parts is when we try to overcome by ourselves without the help of another overcomer. We may push back against this because we want to do it ourselves, and there may be times when we can, but there are things that master us that are impossible for us to do.
Have you experienced that? That is exactly why all the A programs are working, overcomers help others to overcome. What the A groups (AA, NA, CA, CMA, etc) have in common is that they all believe God is the key to overcoming. It clearly says "nothing is impossible for God" and "I can do all things through him who strengthens me" in scripture so why do we buck up against it when it is there for us to have?
A.A. adds "God does for us what we cannot do for ourselves". Tomorrow night I celebrate 36 years of sobriety and you know what the greatest obstacle that was overcome - ME! The common dysfunctional denominator in my life, ME! This is why I understand what is being written in this blog. God changed me from the inside out, an impossible task for me to do on my own.
Want help overcoming? Yes You Can if you place your situation in the hands of the one who can. After all, he is the only one besides you who really knows what is inside of you that needs to change.
Yes You Can Overcome if you really want to!
