Author Ifeoma Samuel’s new book, Overcome Failure, is a must have for anyone who is human. Don’t we all fail and find it hard to pick ourselves back up? Especially if it’s a red face blunder type of failure and I think just about every one of us has experienced that in life.
The author reminds us who we are and to whom we belong: trust God. We don’t have to be perfect; God is the perfect one!
I like declarations from God’s Word and speak them over my life to remind myself of true reality. Declarations from the Word are included here.
The advice to overcome critics helps me to know that if criticism evokes growth, I keep it. If it is not meant for good, it should be discarded.
The author suggests ways to overcome embarrassing situations. I have found myself in loads of those and checked off the list of what to do!
I nodded in agreement with this book when it comes to fear of failure and ways to overcome. My favorites were saturating myself with God’s Word, really believing it! The other is developing an attitude of gratitude.
I liked the emphasis on God’s Word, not just positive thoughts and statements. Clever positive words have never held their strength compared to the power of what God says. There is nothing like His promises!
The ending of this book targets faith and I know developing faith always overcomes fear. Faith gets us to the finish line.
I highly recommend Overcome Failure. It comes with a companion study guide and will be available for purchase on August 16, 2016.
