I love this quote because it gives you so much power. You have to realize that you control how you perceive the outcome of every situation, whether it was a setback or a stepping stone to where you want to be. I hurt my finger on Friday. To me it feels like a setback, but when I look at it, I realize it's just God's way of slowing me down and teaching me how to deal with something like this so that I am better prepared in the future. If I want to run races, I need to know what it feels like to have things like this happen, and to know that it's not the end of my race, just a minor setback that I'll recover from.
This is not how my story ends! There are 10 more months to this year and I'm just getting started on my goal!! ___
Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
~ Psalm 73:23-26
