You can’t win all the things!

No matter who you are, you want to win all the things!  You want to succeed at everything you try.  For some that may mean you don’t try for fear that you may not win.  I’m here to call the excrement of a bull on that!  (translate that previous sentence as you wish.)

Look at anyone from the Bible, other than Jesus, and you’ll see that winning has never been the point.  Trust and trying are the point.  You see, if you don’t try you don’t get to experience life.  Yes, you’ll still be alive.  But rather than living, you’ll be existing.  There’s a big difference.

Existing means that you are sucking up resources and trying to stay safe so that you can have more resources.  Then you die and whatever resources you have amassed are left behind for the next one to add to their safe collection of stuff.

Here’s a challenge for you as you start off a new week, month and year:  LIVE!  Let go of it, whatever it is.  Are you feeling led to sell your house and move?  Then move!  Are you drawn to change jobs?  Then change!  Are you feeling pushed to work with the homeless?  Go! Now!  Go before you get sucked back into safety.  Safety can be good, but it is rarely fun.  God has called you to adventure!  He has created you to experience everything He has planned for you.  Search the Bible and emulate.  You are not going to win all the things.  But, winning all the things is not the point.  Living is.

God’s waiting at the finish line, the start line and every step in between.  Are you ready to make a move yet?
