Podcast: Overcoming Adversities with Dr. Mel Tavares
I am honored to be a guest on the 'Your Hope-Filled Perspective' podcast.
Here is the episode summary:
Have you been knocked down by life’s circumstances and are struggling to get back up? Join me with Dr. Mel Tavares as we talk about how to overcome adversity and rise from the ashes. Those things that seem impossible are not impossible when we’re working with God and cooperating with Him.
Quotables from the episode for Overcoming Adversity:
If we aren’t advancing in the battle, we are retreating. We have to serve our way out in order to rise up from our ashes. As we pour into others, our pain is redeemed. To be content, we have to let go of what we think we should have or deserve to have. Our circumstances don’t define us.
Scripture References for Overcoming Adversity:
Matthew 17:20 (Amplified) He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. John 10:10 (NIV) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 (NIV) Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
