How to Overcoming Obstacles in Life
Have you read the biblical story about Gideon? Gideon had a call for a great purpose, but he refused the call, testing God instead of complying. Gideon’s story is rich in lessons that we can borrow and apply in our lives to help us overcome obstacles.
How many times have you heard people say,” in everything give thanks”? It sounds easier said than done, but once you start applying this principle, genuinely, I can assure you, life will never be the same.
