No matter when we start, in any race, event, and/or functions. The key is”just start”. I find that many are hindered by fears of so many levels, and here I speak of myself. Fear has faces, and those faces are worn by family members, so called friends, and associates, but the greatest fear is looking in the mirror and seeing inward that “you” are your biggest fear. In the bible fear is seen as a spirit, as in 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” NLT
So I send these words of love to you, and that is “Begin Again” If you have started and stopped, no matter the reason, turn the “Hurts” in to “Hurtles” and soar over them. I can remember my high school track days, and the coach wanted me to run the hurtles, and for the life of me, I could not keep that back leg high enough. I will never forget the joy I felt when I soared over those hurtles, and I use this analogy when I think of what may have attempted to stop you, or may have stopped you; I am here to say to you dear ones “Begin Again”! You have everything in your favor, why I say this, you may ask, well if you are reading this blog, then (smiling) you are alive, and you can achieve.
Begin again, is what I want to share with you, because the start does not matter, it is where you finish. So with this said, like those days of track and field in the various types of races there are challenges, and we are capable of achieving each race, like in the relay race we can drop the baton of success being past to us, but pick it up and continue running. Also when you jump the hurtle and it falls, don’t look back, just keep focused and prepare for the next one, because as sure as you are in this race, the next one is up ahead. Their are the long distant races, and the short 50 yard dashes, it is not the type of race you are in that matters, what matters is that you are in the race and your reward awaits you, just finish.
I speak to myself as I share my heart, because life has brought many hurts, that I had to hurtle over, but I will not quit, because the prize is to great. Just because you began again, does not mean you must start from the front of the line, no it does not, it only mean pick up where you left off and GO!
This was a pleasure sharing with you.
