Quote of the Month – Doors Close and Doors Open

Wake up Winning because you are a winner-you have the advantage over everything the moment you breathe-in life each day’

LA Austin

The Advantage

God gives us the advantage every day we wake up.  2 Corinthians 2:11 says “lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices” As I’ve learned, this suggests I “have” the advantage-an advantage I maintain unless and until I give it up.

The Opportunity

Sometimes when things feel too difficult, we are not able to see clearly through the storm, we can’t quite figure out how to get from under that dark cloud of misery, sadness or depressive thoughts, or a door closes on us that we thought was our last and final opportunity…work to remember your advantage, it is there. Open your eyes, it is just beyond the horizon. Equipped with your advantage, He has packaged your opportunity. It is waiting for you.

I believe that with the advantage, there is an opportunity each and every day – to love and to serve.   

Final Thought

Remember winning is what you do – you have the advantage! 

I’m reminded of a scene from Talladega Nights:  The Ballad of Ricky Bobby when Ricky says ”  If you ain’t first, you’re last”

First is your position in life.  Wake up in it and maintain it.

You’re a winner.
