After an entire week without playing basketball, I stepped onto the court ready to accelerate and decelerate at any pace. My first transition from defense to offense ended with me stumbling upon the hardwood floor as if I was the basketball. With a stretch of skin peeled off on the outer half of my left knee, I retrieved the ball and settled back down on defense.
I committed a few turnovers, made a few shots only to end up with a bad shooting percentage.
Being a follower of Christ is a daily commitment, regardless of the season of our lives. We need to love God with all our hearts, minds and souls even when our flesh feels weary; we need to ask Him for guidance and know that His blood will be the acceleration of our faith. When we swim in that blood, we rely on His goggles to give us vision and direction.
If you’re crawling in faith, you cannot run with Him if he tells you because you’re in your diapers.
- You need to develop one of the more important disciplines instructed to us: Read the Bible, meditate, and pray daily.
If you’re walking with Him, prepare to change gears to His pace.
- Hunger for His word, and be lifted through His will. Don’t live comfortably.
It’s hot! Yesterday’s weather in D.C was 110 degrees with a heat index of 119! Cool off! If you’re swimming in His presence, He’ll refresh you and sustain you!
