Have you every watched a track and field event? Whether the racers are sprinters or long distance runners, they have at least one thing in common: the start and finish lines are the same. What determines the winner of the race is an individual’s gifting, coupled with the training, and determination to run one’s race to their ability, as he or she has been coached.
The same applies in life. We all have the same start and finish lines; what determines our success, as we have defined, is our gifting, coupled with training, and determination to continue to run. When it appears that you should be farther along in the race of life than you are, do not stop. Do not quit! Do not grow weary!
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9 NLT
Start where you are!
Do not allow what you think you cannot do to affect what you can do.
Small steps lead to big leaps.
