Is My Desire God’s Will?

We must realize that God's will shines through everything if we are following Him. In John 16, Jesus is trying to explain to His disciples what is about to happen to Him. They ask a lot of questions, and Jesus tells them that they will be faced with trials and sorrows, and even people who will hurt them in God's name. But. There's a But!!! (Don't you love it when there is a but?!) "But, take heart, because I have overcome the world."

The First Shall Be Last

One of the reasons I hated running as a kid was the fact that I was almost always last.  The shame of not just not winning, but being the final person to cross the line really got to my me. I don’t like to admit it, but I’m a fairly competitive person, and losing just wasn’t going to work for me.  Quitting was much easier to do than lose, and I quit more things than I am proud of as a child because I wasn’t winning as much as I wanted to.  So, this caused almost two decades of an unhealthy relationship with physical activity.
