Encouraging Word for Today - To Win in Life

Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24
William Arthur Ward wrote: 'Believe while others are doubting. Plan while others are playing. 

Decide while others are delaying. Prepare while others are daydreaming. Begin while others are procrastinating. Work while others are wishing. Save while others are wasting. Listen while others are talking. Smile while others are frowning. Persist while others are quitting.' To win in life requires three things:

1) You must start. That may seem obvious, but many of us are stuck in the starting blocks waiting for something to get us going. What has God called and equipped you to do? Step out and do it, and He will empower you!

2) You must give it your all. Divers in the Olympics don't save all their effort for their final dive. They concentrate on nailing every single one, increasing their chances for a gold medal. Don't settle for mediocrity at any stage of life (Philippians 3:14).

3) You must never quit. In the 1992 Olympics, Derek Redmond of Britain was competing in the 400 metre race when he suffered a torn hamstring and fell. As the other runners breezed past him, he began to struggle to his feet. His father, whose face was covered with tears, suddenly ran down from the stands to help him up.

Slowly, agonisingly, they made their way around the rest of the track and crossed the finish line as the stadium in Seoul burst into thunderous applause. Redmond didn't win a medal, but he won something more important-the respect of the world. The Bible says, 'Run in such a way as to get the prize.'

  10. I comment each time I especially enjoy a article
    on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    It's triggered by the passion displayed in the post I browsed. And on this post "Encouraging Word for Today - To Win in Life". I was moved enough to leave a thought :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright.
    Could it be simply me or do a few of the comments appear
    like they are left by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to follow you.
    Could you list every one of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?
