My name is VICTORY!

My brother-in-law preached at our church's youth week last night and part of his message struck me. He challenged the young people to consider themselves victorious. He asked everyone to repeat the words "My name is victory". I believe that I am going to make this my mantra from now on. When I repeat these four little words to myself, I feel empowered. It is also part of my positive thinking. By saying it and believing it, is a testimony of faith. I believe that all will work out well and that I and my expected end will be safe. My name is victory.

I know I was feeling sad a few days ago, but after going to services last night, I was reminded of the scripture that says "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind" (II Timothy 1:7). Why should I be fearful? after all I am a believer and if he has mandated that I am more than a conqueror, and he has equipped me with a sound mind, then I should have no negative thoughts. Whenever I feel fear coming over me, and what ifs? I repeat this scripture to myself. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I go back to work on Monday and like I said in my previous post, I have mixed feelings. Worst of all, everyone will  be talking about my AP's new baby boy. I hope I get through that day okay. Please keep me in your prayers.

I also have a very important appointment this week (Wednesday). Please pray that all goes well. After all I have been through last year, I really want good news this week. I will let you know how it goes.
Please pray for my friend Alyson. She recently underwent a procedure and will get the results this week (I think the 17th - Friday). Please pray for good news, and despite the news, peace of mind for her and her hubby. 

Awaiting my expected end.


  1. Love all of your positive thinking. I agree--it is so important to speak words that build faith!! I will be praying for you on Wednesday, Marie! Thanks for praying for me--the 17th is the big day we find out we're pregnant! (Positive words!!)

  2. What a cool mantra----"My name is Victory!" I love it.

    Continuing to keep you in my prayers. Hope that Monday (and pregnant AP) aren't too difficult to face. :)
