Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 1 Corinthians 9:24
The 1993 released Hollywood movie 'Rudy', starring actor Sean Astin, is a true story about a young man with a passion to go to University of Notre Dame and play football. He was little, from a blue collar family and the odds were against him. If you get a chance rent the DVD or buy it on Amazon. This young man was tenacious in his goal and dream. He did not quit when the odds were against him.
Is there something you have your mind set on to do but someone has been trying to convince you there is no hope or chance? Remember there is always hope no matter what! Go after your dreams and keep your eyes on the prize. I heard once a saying that said "If God brings you to it, He'll get you through it.' Wish I knew who to quote on that one.
Keep trying. Don't give up. Keep your eyes on the prize. Do not plant negative thoughts in your head. Look to Jesus for your strength to see you through no matter what!
PRAYER: I choose to remain positive in a negative world. When challenges come my way help me Lord to focus on good things and not the reasons why I can not do something. In Jesus' name. Amen.
