Let’s pray, he doesn’t ask to practice tennis on broken glass like Serena and Venus Williams . Thanks ESPN Documentary For the New Problem
The creativity in this kid.
Our BOS Word for the day is : RUN
What does RUN mean to you?
1 Corinthians 9:24-25
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
I found so many definitions for the word RUN. Here are my favorites
6. To move or go quickly; hurry:
“Mom, I thought you were training for a marathon my son said.”
“Today mom. We Must Run Today , he said!”
- R-Relax. Relate. Release. – What’s really going on? Don’t let your mind out way your better judgement. You can overcome and conqueror these LIMITATIONS. You are strong enough. Release Limitations. And start running
- U-Uncomfortable and Unconventional- Training for anything is like going to WAR. You have to prepare, practice, go through hurdles and the list goes on. I just watched the story of Venus and Serena Williams, and discovered they practiced tennis on broken glass. Could you imagine this kind of training. They also took boxing, ballet, and tai chi lessons to prepare for the sport of tennis. They also practiced with baseball pitchers- to develop great arms for serving- . They did Uncomfortable and Unconventional training, but the proof is in the results. They are the BEST. Many times the uncomfortable challenges we face are there to help not hinder our results. So embrace the unconventional IMMEDIATLY
- N- No Complaining – I always encourage my son to be a leader, but in the moment , I wanted to complain- I planned to walk with the 10 pound bag, but running with it never crossed my mind. I was ready to complain before I even TRIED. If the bag breaks, at least I now know ” This bag is not made for running.” Instead of complaining, we should encourage others.. I immediately, thanked my son for the suggestion, and said” Wait for me.
So any guesses on what happened? Did we make it to the park
We did.. My son even learned how to jump rope.. And I learned how to run with restrictions. The bag got heavy, but I never gave up. Don’t let anything stop you.. Run over your hurdles today, tomorrow, and the next day.. God has not given us a spirit of fear.. Pray, prepare, and run your race today.
