Every activity we have in this life require a certain effort beyond the basic effort we put into life. Like an athlete must go beyond what he thinks he can do, so must all of us when seeking greatness in our lives. Above my desk is a quote I pulled from a blog: MusselmanCoach.
Dig deeper! You have to go deeper! Get in there, fight, be strong, and be tough, we all have more to give then we think! Push yourself! Use every ounce of your potential! I know you have more, I know you can find more inside, we all can.” –Bill Musselman
I put this quote above my desk to read it every morning.
I read it before I write or blog.
I read it before I practice my musical instrument.
I read it before I edit on my novel.
I read it before I start my prayers.
I read it before I study.
I read it before I teach.
I read it before I practice ventriloquism.
I read it before I go to bed.
The Bible is full of stories of people who reached deep, then stepped out trusting God. The books of Saints are full of men and women who reached deep, then stepped out trusting God. God calls each of us to discipleship, which requires we reach deeper than we think we can. The day I first read those words of Bill Musselman, shared by Eric & Nicole Musselman, I felt like those words were meant for me too. There is truth there that reaches beyond the sport he loved.
Truth about how to live.
Dear Lord, thank You for this wisdom shared by Bill Musselman through his children. Please, bless them. +Amen.
