I had a problem and I prayed that my heart could be softened and asked for help to over come it. The next morning on Facebook (of all places) an author posted a quote that was pretty poignant to me. The quote went something like this: It is when we are tired that things we previously conquered want to be faced again.
I took that quote and applied it to my problem. I had already conquered this as a child but for some reason I did not want to conquer it. I wanted to sulk and nurse my wounds, complain and dare I say...become bitter!( I hate feeling bitter. It takes up too much needed brain power, energy and time.)
Well after reading that quote I thought,"NO!" I conquered that already and I am not conquering it again. The problem I was having became a non-issue! It is over, I had already conquered it as a child and I WILL NOT let it affect me again! Or else all of the past victories were in vain. Besides, I knew that this was an answer to my prayer.
Now I am ready. When I am tired and a past conquered problem wants to rear it's ugly head, I will just remember that quote. I have conquered it and I do not need to do it again.
So if you are down or tired and a problem wants to rear it's ugly head again just know that you already conquered it! You are the champion and there will be NO re-match!
