This weekend I got to talk with a woman who golfs professionally. She shared with me that the most valuable thing you can do, when moving from match to match, is to debrief–to bring full closure to one game before moving on to the next. If you are focused on how bad or well your last match went, you can’t focus on the match at hand.
Life is just like this! If we are focused on our past misses, we can’t possibly focus on hitting the mark of God’s glorious standard for our life! We have all missed, but Christ came to forgive us of all our misses! If you have missed, you are accepted, valued, and can be equipped for greater things! Get back up, trust in the finished work of Christ, and swing again! His Grace is sufficient for you! Hope Is Here so that you can hit the mark of God’s glorious standard for your life–just take another shot!
