For the past week I have been sitting in 90 to 100 degree heat watching the Baltimore Ravens training camp. For the life of me I can't figure out how I played football for 24 years in the heat and humidity of Texas, Maryland, and other stops along the way.
Watching these men persevere through heat, injury and mental warfare made me ask the question, "What are we as individuals willing to do to achieve our dreams and destiny?"
Each of us has been created with talents and gifts to achieve great things in this world. However, somewhere along the way, some person or situation causes us to settle with okay instead of God's best. Please understand that every one of us was brought into this world with a purpose and assignment. The road blocks that we encounter are tools to prepare us for our destiny, not deter us. We all experienced testing while in school. There is never promotion without testing. Life is the same game by a different name.
Unfortunately, we aren't bees so we will always get discouraging reports and run into roadblocks. See them for what they are, opportunities for promotion. "Don't let what you see take your vision. " Be blessed and have an outstanding day. Back out to the heat!
