What is success? Is it winning the race? Is it loosing the weight? Is it being the strongest or having the most money?
I used to be a very successful runner, now I can’t run very fast at all. Do you think God loves me less? Some days, I’m good at watching my food intake and managing my money and some days, not so much…. Do you think God loves me more some days then others? No, His love for each of us is unconditional! Jesus is with us always and through all things;
Mathew 28:20 “Lo I am with you always even to the end of the age.”
I think success is running the race with endurance, trusting in God’s love all the way!
We were each created uniquely, and on purpose.
Psalm 139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Some of us are talented runners, some of us are good at throwing, and some of us are good at being friendly and creating team spirit. God has a purpose for each of us; we are all a very important part of His team!!
Jeremiah 29:11.” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Success starts in the HEART. When we trust Jesus as LORD of our heart, His strength will give us success, regardless of where we finish the race.
Be Strong in your life, whatever your race may be!!
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Be fit, be blessed and be successful in the Lord,
I believe success is using our talents to the best of our abilities, for His glory. First place or last place, God grace is with us! Success is knowing Jesus loves us and is our strength regardless of where we place, regardless of our battle.
