QUESTION: How do we approach our Christian faith with the mindset of an athlete?
We need to adopt the “thinking framework” or “mental model” of someone who is training for and competing in a race?
In order to improve you need to have the desire to want to improve, it doesn’t just happen. It takes hard work to focus on the weak points, but the reward is growth.
There are always going to be things we need to deal with, but instead of waiting for the time of where its forced, lets deal with the issues in training.
ASK: Lord, “show me those things I need to deal with now in training, so that when I get to the crisis, where my character is tested, I know I can handle it”.
REMEMBER: There are areas/ influences/ factors you have no clue about (right now) that are affecting you DAILY, that you have no control over.

But you get to choose how you deal with them.
You can receive as much as advice as you want but you have to be willing to put the effort in.

Run your race!
The work, the effort, the time, the resources, the pain, the sweat and tears that you’re willing to put in to your relationship with the Lord has no equal.

AND it has the greatest reward. In every AREA of your life. Everywhere. Now and for eternity.

Christian, Be Like the athlete.
