Hey yall, how yall doin?
lol i know my devotion postings have been pretty bad lately..
that is why i am posting on this day to fill in my missed days to
hopefully make up for it
(today is July 24th btw)
Devotions comes from Mathew 9 Verse 21:
for she was saying to herself, "If i only touch his garment, I will get well."
what i got out of this:
I found that lately, my mindset hasn't been all that positive. It would always just be me thinking about the worst case scenario so that i can just be prepared for the worst...and like..it works because 99% of the time,in the end it isnt the worst case scenario. But thats just it...you know, it all about the mindset. Going through something with a negative mindset just lets yourself down and usually for me, it causes me to just give up...like whatever..screw this. But no, lol you should never give up. I was running one day to catch a bus...it was going faster than i was and the stop was far away. I was running and then i stopped..thought to myself w/e ill catch the next one..but the funny thing was that it stopped because some one had to get off on that stop. And because of that, i was able to catch it!
even when all odds seem to be against you, just dont give up. giving up just decreases your chances even further.
My friend told me wayne gretsky once said, a shot untaken is a guarantee miss.
Lol also, i was playing black jack with my friends and i had a 20...i said hit me...(yea sure everyone was lafing at me and calling me names as a joke) bbut i didnt care, i said HIT ME. and he did, i got an ace!
BUTTTTTT the important thing is, after that, everyone just didnt care anymore, they started saying hit me even though they had 19's or 20's and they all... got... 21..
Everytime i play basketball or any competitive sport and at the times when my opponent would be beating me 20-5 i would always say: its not over until its over.
SO ...i challenge myself and others as well to just keep going and fight all the odds. Because odds dont mean a thing until the very end.
