our best is more than personal
achievement. Success is knowing God has a plan and
has called me to fit into His plan. Success is the
character forged on the journey to grow into
Gods person, the person He made me to be.
Success is blessing others in ways He would bless
themto give something back and not just take
definition, most of the greatest successes in life
are people the headlines will never trumpet. But we
know them! Like the para-athaletes in Atlanta this
past week, they are the best they can be. They bless
others through their character, kindness, and
faithfulness. They serve as examples because they do
it for the thrill of the journey to be their best.
Lets not let their examples be wasted.
Lets be our best, too!
To spur you on to
true success, I want to encourage you to do two
Write one of your true life personal heroes a
note of thanks and tell them how theyve
blessed our life. This is not some media
figure you admire, but someone youve
personally known. They may even be someone no
one else recognizes as a hero, but in your
mind, they live up to the true definition of
success: theyve known their purpose for
being here, theyve lived up to that
purpose, and theyve blessed others
along the way.
I want to encourage you to use the following
guide as you begin a weekly training regimen
to be the best you can be for God.
Each Sunday, the first day of the
week, commit to being your best for
O Lord God, maker
of the magnificent and wondrous
universe, I thank you for making
me and knowing me, even when I
was in my mothers womb. I commit
today, and this week, to live for
your glory. I will be my best to
Your honor and glory. Trusting in
the power of Your Spirit, I will
honor You. Amen.
Write down in one short sentence what
you believe your role is in
Gods work for this coming week.
Write down one barrier/sin you want
to overcome, or write down one
positive or kind deed you want to do,
which will help you be more the
person God made you to be.
Write down the name of one specific
person you will pray for each day and
you will seek to do a kind deed
to/with during the coming week.
Now to Him who is able to do
immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, by His
power that is at work within us, to Him be glory
forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians
