Today is the day!
Revenge is going to be sweet!
I HATE that Jenny!
Whoa! What did she ever do to YOU?
She’s so full of herself! She thinks she’s so cool! And she’s UGLY too!
Wait a minute … Didn’t Jenny beat you at the cross country meet last week?
That has nothing to do with it!
Aren’t the time trials for qualifying for the State Tournament today? And don’t you have to win to get in?
And isn’t that Jenny coming this way?
Hi, Annie. I hope you do well at the race today. I was praying for you last night.
I made this little friendship bracelet for you.
Maybe we can hang out together after the race.
Oh, she’s SOOOO mean, isn’t she?
I can’t win now.
If I can’t hate Jenny, what’s my motivation to win?
You’ve got the wrong motivation, Sweetheart. You need to focus on one four letter word to get you where you need to go.
It’s not the fear of losing?
It’s the love of GOD!
YES! “But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)”
Me? A Sinner?
We’re all sinners, Honey. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)”
But if I LOSE this race, I’ll be a … a … LOSER!
No you won’t! God doesn’t create losers. Jesus loves you so much that He rose from the grave to conquer death and to show you the way to live with Him forever.
You mean Heaven?
YES! Because He made you and gave you the amazing ability to run.
Yeah, I guess He did do that, didn’t He?
Love is a much more powerful motivator than revenge, or fear, or lettering yourself think you’ll be a loser forever if you don’t finish on top.
That makes sense.
Ready to talk to God about it?
YES! Lord Jesus, I thank you that you love me more than I can imagine. I place my trust in You not only for the race today, but for every day. I trust You with my very life. With You, I am a winner, no matter what happens. Amen.
Later that day …
Great race, Annie!
Yeah, it looks like we both qualified for the State Tournament.
You ran like you really love running.
That’s because there is a more powerful love behind me.
It gets me out of bed in the morning!
