Let competition make you, not break you!
There's more than the actual win. Don't miss the lessons!
The track stadium.
The gymnastics area.
The swimming pools.
The basketball court.
The soccer field.
The softball field.
The school auditorium.
Even the church pew.
Wherever my children compete, I walk in full confidence that they will show up and dominate.
Truth is, we win some and we lose some.
But either way, I always have my kids backs.
Sometimes, I question the coaches.
Sometimes, I question the judges.
Sometimes, I question my child.
I always want to know what happened? How can she/he get better? (Even a win can be better. Yep, I'm THAT mom. More goals. More points. More speed. You get the point...)
I push again.
I push some more.
Thankfully, my children aren't quite as intense as I am. They balance me out.
You see, they all walk with a different level of humility.
During a past competition for one of my children, I was reminded that "...with humility comes wisdom." Proverbs 11:2
|The Road of Humility Leads to Wisdom|
My children are humble enough to accept their wins with their losse.
They are wise enough to know that they are the head and not the tail.They are wise enough to know that all things are possible with God.
They are wise enough to know that the best is yet to come.
What word of wisdom have your humility developed with you?
