Home Run

Sports and Lessons LearnedWe have heard reports recently about performance enhancing drugs that many pro baseball players have been accused of taking. They didn’t need the drug to be great. God had given them the skills and all they really needed was faith. The greatest performance enhancer is our faith. When Jesus touches us, we have a power from within so go out there in life and use this daily dose of power. Below is a poem to affirm this thought and of hitting home runs for God each day. 

Getting a jump on my day;
And ready to write my story.
To be at my best today;
And ready to bring Him glory.
Looking at the wall;
Waiting for the pitch.
Then focused on the ball
And seeing every stitch.
The pitch is right in my zone.
There is no pressure at all.
For my mind has already shown;
That the ball goes over the wall.
Getting a jump on my day;
And ready to write my story.
To be at my best today;
And ready to bring Him glory.
