Going the Distance

I pray hard, work hard, and leave the rest to God.

     Florence Griffith Joyner, 1959-1998

     American Olympic Gold Medalist

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.

     Psalm 136:1, 26

 

Florence Griffith Joyner still holds the record for being the fastest woman alive, unbeaten.for the Olympic 100 and 200 metres events.  She was plagued by accusations of steroid use.  She was extensively tested, coming up cleaner than clean.  After she died at the age of 38 from epileptic seizure in her sleep, she was extensively tested…again…for the same thing.  She was clean. It seems that even when you are the  best, or maybe especially because you are the best, people go to great lengths to prove that you are not.  

Today, I am thankful that God looks upon the heart.  No matter what the outside looks like, no matter what wreaks havoc with our insides, it is the heart that God looks at, and knows so well.  Today, turn your heart toward God afresh.  Give God your best.  He already knows you are a winner.

Because of Him,

Linda
