In the Spirit of the Olympics in Rio, I have found scripture that kinda goes along with the Olympics and how the athletes compete for the prize, A Gold Medal.
I am an athlete as well. By looking at me you would get a kick out that, not the
most athletic body here. I am an athlete in the scripture. My prize is much different.
1 Corinthians 9:22-27
“22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.”
This scripture is why I have this blog. I hope that I can lead people to Christ. I hope that I can help someone that has lost a child. I hope that I can help someone through a difficult time in their life.
“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. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”
Oh how I can’t wait for that prize. Eternity in Heaven with Jesus, Kelsey, Annie, Mamma, and all the others that have gone on before me.
You see, a Gold Medal’s are GREAT. These athletes work so hard to get to the Olympics. I admire how dedicated they are.
You see, my focus in life is much different now. When Kelsey passed away, it changed a LOT of people. Especially me. I have always believed in God. Alway’s felt that special feeling in my heart. But when He took Kelsey, that SAVED my life. You might be saying how in the world can a mother say that. Well, this mother can.
I now have a special relationship with the Lord. The one that had been missing in my life. I get to have the “Crown” that will last FOREVER. Oh what day that will be……
Think about it. I pray that you want the Crown that will last forever. I pray that you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and you let him into your heart…..
