NO DEFEAT EVER

“Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory.”
-- 1 Corinthians 15:57
I’ve often seen the world as a place of endless competition inevitably ending in either victories or defeats, but when I’m thinking clearly, I know that only victory is possible. In order to have winners and losers, there must be division and separation – individual “teams” fighting it out – but in this universe, as I’m understanding better and better, there is only oneness. It’s a universe, not a mulitverse, and the entire universe itself always wins. It’s literally true that all things work together for good, for victory. Each moment of existence – mine or anything else’s – is a complete triumph for everything. The universe, of which I am a part, deserves a trophy every single second.
