“For nothing is impossible with God.” — Luke 1:37 (NLT)

Make The Choice

I was a walk-on student-athlete at a Division I school. Growing up, if I would have listened to all the outside voices asking, “Why are you doing this?” or saying, “You will never make it,” then that would have never ended up happening.

“Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service. Without it, nothing is possible; with it, nothing is impossible” — Mary McLeod Bethune

Whatever goals you have set for yourself, remember that there will be obstacles in the way. That’s a given. Even Jesus promised that there would trouble in this world. But remember that when those trials do come, no matter how big they are, God’s love is greater.

Make the choice to trust in God no matter how long the fight is to overcome the obstacles in your life. Be faithful in putting in the work through small actions! In these times, put your trust in Him, as nothing is impossible with God on your side!
