Stay In The Fight

I love the lyrics in Chris Tomlin's song "Our God":
"Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…
And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us, then what can stand against?"

To me, facing adversity is part of what makes life worth living. Yet many choose to tuck their tails and run from challenges. Their loss is in doing so is they'll never know what might have been overcome. When we find ourselves face to face with a troubling life circumstance, if we trust in God by having the willingness to fight, to sacrifice, or to endure the unknown, HE honors our faith by making a way; even when there seems to be no possible path.

The 6 week Open Sectionals process has been taxing physically, mentally, and even emotionally. But the beautiful thing about it is that each week it has given me the opportunity to face the challenges set before me. I'm given the opportunity to stay in the fight. Whether it's sectionals or life outside of competition - for me, this has meant to trust in the Lord. It has meant to trust in the heart, mind, and ability He has given me. Rankings will forever change...but believing in God to fulfill my life's destiny and purpose is something I'll forever fight for.
