The Future

January 3, 2017


“No matter what you did in the past, your future is spotless!”
 John R. Rice




I’m sure you have heard of a man by the name of Babe Ruth. He was known for holding the record for most home runs hit, but what many don’t know is he also held the record for most strike-outs. In our lives, there will be times that we strike-out or fail and sometimes, we will fail in a BIG way. We cannot be afraid of attempting new things in this New Year because of failure. Babe Ruth had the most home runs because he was not afraid of striking out!
Abraham Lincoln
1831—failed in business, went bankrupt
1833—back on his feet, failed again
1835—fiancée died
1836—nervous breakdown
1838—ran for speaker of house, was defeated
1843—congress, was defeated
1848—congress, was defeated
1855—senate, was defeated
1856—vice president, was defeated
1858—senate, was defeated

Success is getting up just one more time than you fall!


“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” --Joshua 1:8
