I will prevail

I will prevail, I will excel keeping my enemies under my feet, not admitting defeat. I will continue to stay strong and stay in the kingdom of God where I belong. Life is like a tug of war to get what is in store for me. On one side of the rope is my dreams successes and on the other end of the rope are my obstacles and circumstances. I will not lose my chance to prevail in life. I will continue to follow through with all of my might conquering anything in sight that stands in my way. I will not sway to the left or to the right. Hand over hand fist over fist foot over foot, I will prevail through Christ. The rope is getting harder and harder to maintain , but I must not lose hope but believe in God that I will achieve greatness. I can tell my enemies don’t want me to prevail in life but trial after trial. I came out on top of my game. I am not ashamed to say i didn’t do it alone but through Christ on my side to confide in. I will prevail at the end.
