Ever had one of these days?

Ever had a day that you felt like this?  Me too!

Meet Muggsy Bogues, who at 5’3", was one of (it not THE) shortest NBA players to ever play.  But he did.  He had a great career.

Doesn’t matter where you came from… how your parents did or didn’t raise you… who treated you fairly or who cheated you out of your eyeteeth.  You have a fighting chance.

That’s why one of my favorite scriptures is Phillippians 4:13"I can do all things through him who strengthens me."

It makes a big difference if I go through life trying to live off of my own strength or God’s.  Trying to create my own identity, or accepting who God says I am.

And that’s a daily struggle – to see myself through God’s eyes, instead of Madison Avenue’s, or Glamour magazine’s, or my seminary proffessor’s.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go work on my basketball dunk… 🙂
