I am an Overcomer…

Ask for a demotion at work to get paid less than a 1/4 of what you are currently making. Irresistible idea right? I mean, use this example: suppose you are making $100,000 a year. You are going to ask to starting making $25,000. before taxes??

Sounds crazy right? Go ahead admit it.. it’s crazy! But, what if God told you to do this? Still think it’s crazy?

For years God’s been dealing with me on so many issues. Finally, I got tired, of being tired,of being tired, of being tired, and I said OK God! My issues were many: need for control, fear, longing, stress, giving more of myself than I had, putting others needs ahead of my own (this is the short list).

I free fell into Gods will. I have to say once I did, I felt relief. Free and so light, that It wouldn’t have surprised me if I had floated on air.

I had no fear. I knew with a certainty I’d never felt before, that this, was the right thing to do.

I got that demotion! (I say this proudly) A few days later, I bought my forever home. I own it. I moved into the house a week later. It’s been months now, and I can say with certainty, I’m an overcomer because of God.

Bills are paid, I’m not hungry, I have everything I need. I lost nothing. In fact I’ve gained really valuable things…time being one and peace being another.

Peace means less stress. I now have more time for God. I get to go to church weekly to praise Him now and get the Word. I pray more. My relationship with God is so much deeper and richer. I understand myself better. I see life differently now. I’ve softened and become more tender in my life. I’ve opened myself to giving myself up to his will. I’ve overcome so much of all that was holding me hostage in my spiritual and personal growth.

Nobody but GOD could do what HE has done in my life in the past few months.

I can tell you that when God speaks, answering HIM is the right thing for me. I wish I had answered sooner. Well … maybe not … see if I had, I might not have the testimony I have now. I wouldn’t have the joy I have now. I wouldn’t have the peace I have now…

I also wouldn’t have the courage I have now to be transparent in my journey with GOD!


Have you overcome? Please share your experience…


  1. Oh, I am so happy for you that you now have peace and time with God. The world admires those who make lots of money and gets ahead. But what are we living for? What good does money do our spirits?

    Sometimes I’ve overcome smething, but it keeps popping up in my mind and I think, “I thought I dealt with that.?” I would say the biggest thing I’ve overcome, and must keep overcoming, is being depressed as soon as I wake up. Another day to face, when all I want to do is stay in bed and never get out. Lol So each day I say, “The Lord is a shield around me, he is my glory and the lifter of my head. The Lord is a strong tower I run to and I am safe. I love the Lord because he has heard my voice. Blessed be the name of the Lord from now to forevermore. The Lord is the strength of my life and my portion forever.”

    The depression leaves, Satan leaves, defeated once again by the Word of God. This has been my most important victory, and it is the Lord who showed me what to do when depressed. I owe it all to him.

    • First thank you for reading my blog post. Second thank you for commenting and being so transparent. I appreciate you sharing your experience. The Word of God is so awesome. Victory is yours when you speak HIS word out loud! I experience depression as well and recently I’ve found comfort in “Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
      ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:14-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬
      http://bible.com/116/eph.6.14-17.nlt I dress in the armor and my days have been so much better! God is good and I thank God for this connection with you… you encouraged me with your words. Stay blessed and thank you again for being transparent in your experience.

    • Awe thank you for your encouragement and testimony! To God be ALL THE GLORY! For not my will but Gods will! I appreciate you and thank God for your encouragement and transparency… we are OVERCOMERS! 😊


  3. I loved reading this. Its been a thought on my mind for a while now- how to let go and let God, how to distinguish His voice and desire from my own and how to feel confident that I am following Him as He intends. Your story and the stories of those who commented are amazing, God bless you guys. I seek the overwhelming and expressed joy and confidence in the Lord that you have. I too am a Overcomer and sometimes I forget how much God has brought me through for me to be where I am right now and continues to carry me through every difficulty and challenge in my life. I am so grateful.

    • “Letting go and letting God” has/is a continual process for me. I thank God for his grace and mercy that’s brought me this far. What I love about this journey is that I’ve gotten to know God for me! My relationship is MY relationship with God and it may not look like anyone else’s but It’s mine. It’s ours, God and me. I am thankful for the opportunity to just be able to praise HIM for all.. the good and the bad and the growth in HIM!
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience… Being transparent is appreciated and connects us all. Praying for you as you grow in God! God Bless and lets stay in touch!
