BINGO!That's totally true. We are victors not victims.
Another BINGO! Well said TressaNot to over think it! God has told us the Way plain and simple. He is not the author or confusion but of peace and understanding! I find that when I start analyzing things....my feelings, events in the day, why x doesn't seem to be going the way it should or lining up with y....that is when doubt and trouble start to come in. But if I take Him at His Word (with anything in life!) - and leave it there - that is when I stay in peace. When I stay in His understanding (and don't try to creep out with my own interpretations understandings and explanations ...that is when things make sense. That is when I can see His purpose and remember why things happen as they do - all according to His plan.
