Age Magic

Age Magic

Do you ever feel like your brain is still at twenty-five and yet your body is just not cooperating? The “party like a rock star” days have past and yet you psychologically think you can do more – you want to do more until you get home and you look at the Lazy Boy (you know why they named it that) and it’s all over. I had that moment today where I looked over the last year for a year end report and wanted to put my feet up on the desk and take a nap. Even the coffee I just picked up is not helping.

Then I remembered a great bible passage from Paul, “24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” (1 Cor. 9:24-27) I want to do more. I want to accomplish more – not to prove something to myself but because God deserves it. 

As the winter olympics approaches I want to be inspired by these great atheletes. I want them to be drug free and competitive. I want to see the possibility of what can be achieved when we discipline ourselves. Maybe just doing things differently or doing those things that really accomplish more is where I am headed with these thoughts but keep at it steadily for the joy of the crown – the crown of life.

Be Well…
