“The only one who can tell you ‘you can’t win’ is you, and you don’t have to listen.” — Jessica Ennis (born 1986), British retired track and field athlete.
Sure, other people will tell us that too. But we certainly don’t have to listen to them. In fact, we usually don’t. When we believe something ourselves, when we believe it deeply, we ignore all those who don’t share our belief. So, it’s true when it says, “the only one who can tell you ‘you can’t win’ is you.” And you don’t have to listen to yourself either!
The Bible tell us:
… let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.”
Excerpt Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)
And the race of life is one race that we can all win. All we need is a little faith.
