Watching a portion of a football game, I was amazed at the tenacity of the ball carrier. He ran with that ball again and again, sometimes only covering inches of ground before he was knocked down. Yet each time he found himself on the ground, his team would re-group and he would go at it once again. Eventually the persistent player reached his goal.
How are you doing this week with tenacity? Have you been knocked down again and again? What are you doing about it? Do you stay down or do you once again get on your feet, determined to continue moving forward, seeking God's best?
Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one wins the prize? So run that you may obtain it. I Corinthians 9:24
Heavenly Father, please give me the courage to keep going, to be tenacious, to reach You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
