No Excuses!

Okay...this is a motivational video!

It may be the Spring Football Season and I am a little fired up about getting students motivated for competition.  Still, this video shared by a close friend (Thanks Dr. Kempe--one of B.I.S.D.'s finest)  fired me up!  So, whatever the season of competition or "life struggle" you are facing, this video will take inventory of all the excuses we dare give and challenge us to dig deeper.

This video should fire up any who step into the competition arena to give there all! Coaches, you should use this video--just sayin'.  

I know it is often used WAY OUT of context, but Phil. 4:13 comes to mind when watching this video.
The Apostle Paul, facing all kinds of situations, good and bad, in his journey with Christ, could have quit and given in to any number of excuses.  Yet, catch the surrounding verses, here is what Paul wrote:

...I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry,whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Paul is not guaranteeing a State, National or World Sport Championship in these verses.  He is not guaranteeing a won election, a passing grade or the spouse of your dreams (all of these would be nice).  What Paul is guaranteeing is joyful, purpose filled, focused, no EXCUSE survival for those focused on following the way of Christ--even in the face of pain and trial! whatever life circumstance you are facing...What's your excuse?
