This really struck a cord with me this morning --

 I know I have started things many times at a disadvantage -

I am no Einstein or Da Vinci but they continue to be my role models for creativity & excellence!!  Maybe for gratitude Helen Keller - compassion Mother Teresa & Gandhi --  For perseverance Thomas Edison - for patience Job --  for forgiveness Jesus --

We all have our struggles -- we all have our own unique weaknesses & vulnerabilities -- We all also have our own defined gifts & talents & strengths

We all make choices & decisions based on our level of knowledge & understanding but they can greatly be influenced by the above factors  and  our emotions  / attitude

I hope this will be a gentle reminder and will help you through any struggle or difficult time you are dealing with - UNEEK


It's Time - Arise!
 
Tonight I heard a minister tell a story that I found very insightful and I want to share it with you. He told a story about the Olympics that happened several years ago.
 
Apparently it had rained heavily the day before the qualifications for runners. The track was extremely wet; they did all they could to get the water off the track but there were some spots where the water still remained.
 
The officials knew it could possibly cause one of the runners to stumble, as the water was contained to one certain spot on the track, where only one runner would be placed.


 As that runner ran where the water was, sure enough, he slipped and fell. As he lay there on the ground, the crowd could hear him cursing and swearing. He did not qualify for the Olympics that year.
 
As the next round of runners approached the track to qualify, the officials were once again concerned that the water spot would affect another runner; and it did.


The runner that was in the same place as the one who had slipped and fallen was the one affected; as he approached the area where the water stood, he slipped and fell in the water, however what happened next allowed him to have an entirely different outcome from the first runner who had fallen.
 
When the second runner slipped in the water and fell, instead of staying down, instead of lying there cursing, he instead pushed himself to roll and get back up and continue the race and it only caused him to gain more momentum and he won the race.
 
The thing I want you to see is this; there will always be hindrances or obstacles that come in our path as we are running the race, what matters most is what we do when we slip and fall.
 
We can do like the first guy when we slip and fall; we can become angry and curse and stay down, becoming disqualified for the prize at the end of the race. Or...when we slip and fall, we can push ourselves back up, gain momentum and finish the race...and get the prize.
 
Your attitude is never more important than it is when you are seemingly down. The very moment you slip and fall or when an obstacle suddenly stops you in your tracks is the most important time to keep a good attitude and continue to press forward.
 
We have an enemy and he will do whatever he can to cause you to stumble and fall and perhaps he will even succeed at putting a stumbling block in your way however that doesn't mean that weapon has to prosper against you, you can choose to use it as a stepping stone instead of a stumbling block and it can cause you to rise even higher..depending on your reaction to it.
 
Failure doesn't come when we fall; it comes when we refuse to get back up. 


I once heard a statement in a Rocky Balboa movie that said 'it's not how hard you can hit that wins the fight, it's how hard you can get hit and keep getting back up.'
 
I love the scripture that says 'don't rejoice when I fall for I shall arise.' That is a covenant person speaking, they know even if they fall, it is not the end for them, they shall arise.


 They don't think 'maybe I will arise, no, they know they SHALL arise...it is a sure thing.'
 
Life may get you down from time to time...but don't let it keep you down. Get back up. Finish the race. Get the prize. Let nothing stop you from getting to the finish line. After all, nothing has the power to stop you but you.

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own -- Bryant

To be persuasive, one must be believable;
To be believable, one must be credible;
To be credible, one must be truthful.
