After a 3 mile run this morning I couldn’t wait to get home and dig into God’s word, I’m always excited to hear what the Lord has in store for me. Well this morning the scriptures hit me in a way that not only left me in awe but kind of made me tear up a bit. In 1 Corinthians 12 I read the following:

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

I have worked hard for many years now to get our boxing club to where it is and I assure you that none of it has been easy. There have been plenty of times when I simply wanted to walk away and call it quits, however there was always something that would keep me hanging on. In those moments, I couldn’t explain what it was that kept me pushing forward but I sure am glad I did. Hindsight is 20/20 so as I look back, all I can do is give credit where credit is due. I’ll never understand why the Lord does what he does or why he chose me for this incredible journey but I am forever grateful for every hardship, trial, dead-end, closed-door, and heart-break that I have ever encountered throughout this process. One of the hardest things I’ve had to deal with is being rejected by those closest to me for simply pursuing what I believe to be my calling, and that’s where these scriptures hit home. I realized that not everyone is going to understand or see my vision because it is a vision that was given to me and not everyone else. My journey however is no less important than the next mans as we all play a small part in God’s great plan. Whether it be boxing, baking, painting, or simply playing an instrument, if you sense this is your calling then I say CHASE IT!!!!
