October is finally here! We all know what that means, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is the time where we recognize and honor all the people who have fought the battle against breast cancer. Seeing all of the pink ribbon memorabilia really moves me. However, hearing the stories from survivors evokes a number of feelings that range from compassion to inspiration. Before I know it, I am weeping tears of joy. I salute these wonderful women! Witnessing survivors giving their testimony about how they won the fight really solidifies the message that if they can overcome such a tremendous battle, we all can conquer the battles in our lives.
The Bible says “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” Romans 8:37. No matter what we are facing in our lives, we will survive. As the saying goes, what doesn’t kill us will make us stronger. We may not be facing the battle against cancer. However, their are other challenges that we face daily such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and other things that weigh us down.
Despite what we are going through we must believe the message of those Breast Cancer Survivors. We must believe in our abilities and trust that we too will overcome. Fight Like A Girl is their motto! This applies to any issue that we battle against. These survivors and all cancer survivors are walking inspirations. We must remember we are all warriors fighting our own unique battles. As we keep the faith and preserver, we too WILL WIN!
This week, I challenge you to look at any current battle in your life through the eyes of these survivors. Allow their stories to encourage you and inspire you to overcome. Trust in God to bring you through. Remember we are warriors and WE WILL WIN! Fight like a girl! Continue to be inspired in all things and evolve!
