BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT YOU DO.

HIS/HER BEST WHEN HE/SHE DOESN’T FEEL LIKE IT.
1 Corinthians 9:25 (NIV) says “Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.”

ALWAYS MAKE A BAD LANDING.

YOU SEE WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GOAL.

But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’ Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ‘You of little faith,’ he said, ‘why did you doubt?’”
