Sweet Victory


“I feel thorns where my crown was
(I be weak but I’m alive)
From the dusk until dawn yeah
(I’ll survive ’cause I got) sweet victory
Nobody can take it from me sweet victory
‘Cause I got (sweet victory) ” – Trip Lee

This past season has been a very  difficult season, where I honestly thought I wouldn’t be able to make it. But I now know that I wasn’t in it alone. Despite how I felt during those few months and how I feel now, Jesus was with me during every moment. As I was listening to this song I could relate on so many levels to his experiences here as he navigates the reality of the life of a believer. Things get hard and sometimes we feel like giving up. But I’m reminded of glory which shall be revealed in the end. Though I experience hardships now, the truth is that it won’t be for long. I may have scars and pain inflicted by the enemy and sometimes myself, but I am purposing to go to the finish line victoriously. Pain may come, but joy will come in the morning. And the victory that I will experience is a sweet victory.

“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”
— Hebrews 12:1b
