I Am in It to Win It
God made a plan for YOU, and he wants you to fulfill it. We need to worry about the time we have left, and not about what other people have going on.
We need to worry about our selves. Let’s say you were in track or cross country, and your in like middle school or high school, you are the fastest runner and every one else is kind of slow. You probably think it’s easy so you don’t have to try as much, but when you get to college it’s a whole different story. In college they choose the best of the best, so you can’t have your chest all puffed out like you used to. All you can think about now is how am I going to beat the person faster then me, and all you think about is how to get faster, but this race is all about being physically ready but you also have to mentally prepared. In this race we call life we are going against time not the person next to you.
We can’t spend our time worrying about other people.
Half of our life we spend our time worrying about what some else has or what someone else does, but what you really need to worry about is yourself because God has a plan for YOU. God didn’t plan for you to worry about other people’s problems, he wants you to do what you need to do and live your life to the fullest. We don’t have much time on this Earth to be worried about others because you need to complete your life. We can’t get distracted by simple thing so we need to focus on the task ahead, so let’s fulfill our purposes because you might not have much time left.
Our life is ours so we need to make the best of it. We can’t worry about others, and we need to worry about how we’re doing.
