Whenever life gets difficult and it seems like the intensity has been turned up, that’s a sign you are closer to being a Champion.
When those lies are in your mind, when you’re tempted to get discouraged or feel like throwing in the towel, that’s not the time to back down. That’s the time to dig your heels in and put on a new attitude because you are closer to your victory. Maybe you’ve had a lot of things come against you. It seems like the more you try the worse it gets. You’re doing the right thing, but the wrong thing is happening. The easy thing is to say, “Forget it. I don’t have to put up with this.” “This marriage is never going to work.” “I’ll never be able to raise this child.” Or, “I don’t like this job.” No, instead of getting discouraged, instead of going around sour and bitter, you need to say, “I’ve come too far to stop now. I’ve been through too much to back down. I realize the reason the intensity has been turned up is because I’m about to experience my victory!” Keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping and stay strong even when the intensity gets turned up! How intense is your life today?
