In every aspect of our lives, one of the keys to any degree of success has got to be consistency. Any coach would agree that consistency is of primary importance to having a winning season. We have all heard coaches talk about the necessity to play focused and hard for the entire game. Teams that do that generally end up playing for a championship. Consistency is a quality that will turn a really good team into a really great team.
Now I recognize that ups and downs are certainly a part of life, however the more we can achieve consistency, the more we can rise above our challenges. Oh and by the way, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it. But it’s not….. I know from experience. The biggest battles we face are not on the ice or on the field of play, but they are in our everyday lives. For me, it is at this point that I turn to my faith in Christ to help me with consistency. I read my bible consistently, and I ask God for strength in every situation. I have found that when I lean on His strength, which is far greater than mine, I can be a champion. I believe that Jesus was a true Champion, and I have determined to follow Him. Oh and by the way, it works…. I know from experience. Psalms 18:32 “For it is God who arms me with strength.”
Whether on the ice, at home or at work, consistency is the stuff of Champions.
