Your Very Best!!

 I know personally there have been times in my life when I am about out of strength. Sometimes I feel like there have been too many hard balls thrown at me and my family. I feel the urge to give up, and throw in the towel. I feel like I have experienced the last little bit that I could handle, but then I have to ask myself, "is that really it, is it all I got, have I really given my very best?"

This is a familiar clip from Facing the Giants where Brock is doing the death crawl. He's coach is yelling at him telling him to give it all, to do his very best. Every time I watch this video it makes me ask myself, am I really giving my very best, in my everyday projects and accomplishments? Do I just give enough to barely get by, to barely get an A, to barely finish my job, to barely make it through life? Or am I giving my all on everything I do?

I don't know about you, but I want to live my life to its maximum potential. I want people to see my life as an example of someone who didn't quit, didn't give up, gave everything they had and gave their very best to all they did.

We don't have to do it alone though. In our own strength, we are hopeless. We can't be the very best or even give the very best if we try to do it ourself. Our job is to not give up, stand firm and see the deliverance of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:17 says "You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you."

We don't have to do it ourself!!!! The Lord is with us!! "Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Go to work, school or even your home with a renewed passion to give your best, and then see the deliverance the Lord will give you!

Giving my best,

  4. Thank you SO much for sharing this!
    Sometimes I feel the same way, as if I just want to give up when everything comes crashing down. One scripture in Psalm 91 says "A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but none will come near you or something like that, an it reminds me that things may come crashing down and thinks may look so chaotic and terrible, but it will only happen around us because we're children of a big big God and he's faithful to the end :) And we've still got to be the people who press into his presence and pioneer the way.
