Finding out that life is not all sunshine and rainbows shattered an already devastated me to the core the first couple of times I discovered this truth. For the longest time, I believed without reason to doubt, that if you do good, life is good. Nope! It's unclear to me why I developed this unrealistic view of life. There will come moments where we encounter challenges that will shake you to your core. Outright terrible times in our lives where we seem trapped in the midst of darkness. Fortunately, we are created with all that we need to see ourselves through these difficult points in our lives. Embracing resilience we are capable of achieving the transformation necessary to see us through. Reminding us of the power of faith, the inspirational movie Overcomer offers lessons to define your real strengths.

Overcomer Lessons to Define Your Real Strength
"Overcomer dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question- what do you allow to define you?"
"Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth... until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey."
“Cross country is a very difficult sport. From the time you start, you do not stop or pause until you cross the finish line. And in many regards, that’s like our life; that’s our journey of faith,” said Alex Kendrick.
“As people are walking out of the theater, we hope that they begin to ask questions about where their identity is found, because too often we find it in our circumstances, in our titles, in what other people are saying about us, in our jobs, in our positions or awards. Those things can be taken away,” said Stephen Kendrick.
“Being an overcomer means you keep your head up and you know that you’re going to get through it; you figure out a way to get through it, you keep your faith strong, you get through it, and you just thank God,” said Aryn Wright-Thompson.
