1st Corinthians 9:25-27Each competitor must exercise self-control in everything. They do it to receive a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.
So I do not run uncertainly or box like one who hits only air.
Instead I subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified.
This devotion got my attention this time thanks to Dale and God's Word. I have seen this verse and have read it over and over again. It has hit me like a ton of bricks, as if I was a cartoon character seeing stars. God has made some big adjustments in my life. Today I gave Him my all my very best all day long. It feels good to actually do something right for once. Got up at 4:30 am prayed to Him on my way to work on my bike. Didn't complain about being froze in 7* weather because I had faith that He would reward me with 30 + * temps going home. At work I worked by myself and got the work done with His Hands because we were short 3 out of 4 workers today. His plan was perfect today at work because I had time to spare and left out of work on time. I also prayed on and off all day since I had no one around to talk too, kind of lonely and spooky. I prayed for others, not for myself to get the work done. : )
So now I am on my way home and yes God is Great because I rode hard for 1 hour of my hour and a half ride, kind of wish I would have had the power tap on just to see how much watts God was pushing me. Especially when the car sloooowly passed me with grinning faces. Love it when that happens, but it always seems to happen with a tail wind, well almost everytime. Made it home and my mom had supper for my wife, that is very ill due to her pregnancy, daughter, and me. Ok so it was just for me but she did bring a lot of other stuff for them. Becky still can't eat and is losing to much weight and she should be gaining instead. Prasie the Lord because Becky felt so much better tonight, Doctors gave her a perscription that has helped her, I pray for her health tonight and the weeks ahead. God blessed our evening together as a family and now I write this this for my blog that hasn't been updated for a long time. Thanks Dale for His word!
Win With Him!
