Are you a Survivor or a Saviour?

Hello Sweet! How are you doing? No matter what you are going through, you are more than conqueror. Yes!

The Survivor and the Saviour


You already know I'm more interested about who you are on the inside than what you are on the outside. Right? It's all about the heart baby. *winks*

This is for you to answer; Are you a survivor or a saviour?


The Survivor

I have been in the group of survivors in my early teens. And I can tell you what they do and what they say. They think small, see limitations and talk failure. They are simply pessimists. You will know them by their attitudes, disposition and words. Oh yes, you can always locate them by their words.

Here are the utterances of a survivor. . .

I'm afraid. . .
This is not working. . .I quit!
This is just enough! I can't take it anymore
I am so frustrated.
My life is a mess.
This is hopeless.
I have bad luck.
I'm so poor. I can't afford it.
I'm dead already!
I'm finished!
The way things are going; I will never make it.
I can't. . . I just can't.
It's impossible.

Those are some of the words I can remember. The survivors dig their graves with their own mouths.

By your words, I'll tell you what your future looks like. The Bible makes it clear that life and death are in the tongue. Your life is shaped by your words. Sure.

The Saviour

Right now, I know there is a yearning in your heart to rather be a saviour than a survivor. Me too. That desire is planted by God. It takes a lot to be a saviour but it is possible.

To be a saviour means to save others. It means to help someone out of difficulties. It means to provide solutions. However, you need to understand that you cannot save and deliver others without being set free first.

Alrightie, here are the attributes that make you a saviour. . .

You are rooted in Christ.
You are committed to God's word.
You are loaded on the inside.
You are strong and courageous.
You regularly spend time alone with God.
You take firm decisions and do not give in to fear.
You lay aside every weight of sin.
You run the race with patience.
You are compassionate.
You love people.
You speak life.
You are determined to prosper.
You reach out to bless others.

Hmmmm. . . Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Who are you?

I am a saviour. And as far as I'm concerned, you are a saviour for being on Heart Rays. Do not be discouraged. Do not give up. Do not stop blessing someone. 

We can't afford to fail. The world is in dire need of saviours.

Keep saving lives.
Have a blessed week.
