“Your crown has been bought and paid for, all you have to do is put it on”. James Balwin
As we enter another year fresh and motivated I was trying to establish what the “theme”for 2017 should be. Since 2016 was such an amazing year with the Rio Olympics that dominated and the ’fight’ for success and victory that was indeed on, at the highest level. Thus with Rio as a fresh backdrop, let us not fly lower this 2017. Let us leap strong and high with much faith and courage.
So to all of us, young athletes, parents, coaches, supporters, anyone reading this, let this year be a year of fruit for us, a year op leaping onto higher and better grounds. And finally a year of reign as we wear our crowns with the ultimate humility, dignity and love, as we impact the world that we live in. Like Eric Thomas says – start where you are, use what you have.
Not forgetting this:
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”.
Let us thus “design the lives we love. Let us take the leap and build our wings on the way down”.
