Have you ever been watching a great moment in sports and at the victory celebration you begin to feel very emotional?  So much that you begin to feel the tears in your eyes well up to the point of needing to wipe your eyes? 

I have had countless conversations with men regarding this moment.  After some awkward banter, the conversation always goes to one area; the victory reminds us of the warrior deep inside of each man.  We often see ourselves in those moments, either remembering past moments of victory or missed opportunity.

The one constant in all of mankind is our need for hope and courage. 

It is not by accident that you are reading this right now.  Whether you are celebrating a now moment or waiting patiently for your soon-coming breakthrough, God has an expected end for every season of your life! 

In Jeremiah 29:13, we have a perfect reminder of His amazing ability to be God.  As a Christian, I am a work in progress.  And so are you.

 

It is easy to lose our focus.  With a distraction at almost every turn, we must remember that if we are focusing on the wrong things, we will see the wrong things. If we are focused on the right things, then we will see the right things. 

Getting weary is easy, although staying in shape for the journey takes a bit more effort and intention.

Ask yourself as you are reading this, “Am I in shape?”  If you know in your heart that you are not, simply refocus on the next step and start walking!  You will see the victory that you are meant to see as you continue to be stubborn for the right things. 

We have all walked through challenge and adversity.  The simple truth is that you must keep walking and NEVER set up camp before you get to your expected end!  It may not be easy; however, it is very doable:)

Galatians 6:9  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
