It pays to believe

In a race, the fastest and most vigorous competitor is likely to win. Those lacking in strength and speed are likely to miss winning gold.  In the world of faith, things are very different ... the last can become the first.

The point here is not if you have the ability to achieve what you desire, but if you are ready to do what it takes to be a winner!

When people are behind in life, they usually only think about what qualities they do not have, rather than considering how to make the necessary changes within themselves to achieve their objectives

Think of all the long-term political prisoners who were released from Robben Island, to name just a few: Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Raymond Mhlaba, Andrew Mlangeni and Elias Motsoaledi.

They were in the race for freedom, but they were not the osers.  They were arrested, imprisoned, but remained free -- in their minds!

Yes, in their minds they were free.  They believed they could make a difference and they did!

So can you!   The Bible says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)

Whatever situation you are going through, God can take you you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.”

— From a 1967 speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is time for you to start believing you can do it.   YES …  you can change your life! Therefore, be strong-minded and believe.  Believe in God and in yourself. Do not give up on your dreams!

Keep moving, keep believing, for faith does not disappoint!

"Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." Romans 5:5 (NKJV)

It pays to believe in God and in yourself!

God bless you all
