"The Kick"

Being a runner, one key phase that separates the boys from the men is what is called a "kick".  This is the last speed change and or sprint before the end of a race.  Many have given suggestions as to what make up a good "kick".  Lelissa Desisa is a long distance star from Ethiopia.  When asked what makes a good kick he responded by saying, " It is not easy to develop a strong kick.  You can train to improve your speed, but the final kick doesn't always come from speed training.  It comes from inside of you based on who you are and how aggressive you are as an athlete." 

I love that response.  The kick is not solely based off of preparation but what one is.  How true this same principle is when we apply it to each of us.  We are each a part of the race of life.  Certain parts of the course require a more determined mind to keep going.

We each have a divine heritage.  We each have what it takes as well as the resources to do whatever may come to help us grow and learn in life.

It seems many of the trials and challenges that come to us seem unaccomplishable, to hard, non beatable, etc.  We can overcome anything that is thrown in our direction.  The small David slew the gigantic Goliath .  Daniel interpreted the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar.  Christ overcame the world and provided a way that all mankind might be saved.  Each of us have the needed resources to be able to get through anything. 

 "God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it(1 Corinthians 10:13)."

I testify of this truth. The Lord is faithful.  He is merciful.  There is not anything that comes into our life that is not achievable. Let us have God like faith to overcome all.
