This is How We Overcome!

Last night we had our first Praise and Prayer party at Regents. It was such an amazing experience. I can truly say that I had forgotten how wonderful it is to gather with those who believe as you do to encourage and pray for one another. We just shared with one another the issues that we are facing and prayed together about these issues. As we were praying, a lyric of a song was playing repeatedly. The verse was "this is how we overcome!" I feel like God was telling me that prayer and coming together with other Christians is how we overcome life's troubles. We have to let go and let God take over. Once we finally let go, we allow God ultimate control. Learning to let go of our control isn't easy but it is so worth it. Also, we shouldn't have to face life's struggles on our own. Others have walked down the same path. Learn from their mistakes or successes! Let them speak wisdom into your life.
I am so thankful for my sisters in Christ that were there to lift me up and encourage me in my walk with the Lord. God has put my family in the most wonderful place to grow and to heal. Prayer is truly how we OVERCOME!
