The Olympics is an exciting group of events watching the worlds best athletes come together and compete in their chosen sport! How wonderful! I’m more of a Summer girl having been born in July, swimming and diving is more on my wave length but you must commend these super-talented athletes for believing in themselves, working so hard; with FAITH in themselves and a Determination to Succeed. It's Inspiring.
I love saying Faith because it’s so important in today’s culture and climate.
No matter what you believe, having Faith in your something special, your talents, your skills, your church, your GOD helps you stay strong, mentally, physically and spiritually for your journey in Life.
One of my favorite scriptures is out of the First Book of Timothy 4:8, “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” That’s so Encouraging! They remind us that it’s not just physical strength but something more. Maybe some don’t believe in Jesus but those that do and share their love of Him with the World are changing the face of our country. It's saying I can be on television and not be ashamed or embarrassed to share my love for GOD. Wow!
I’m sure it’s not easy to continue pushing, pressing, loosing, and aching but when GOD is at the heart of it all in your Bible readings, in your thoughts, in your prayers for others and yourself, you are already succeeding. To finish at the Olympics is Greatness, to be in the Olympics took Faith.
Timothy goes on to say, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (4:12)
I don’t think I could say it any better.
