Life Stages

Somebody asked me for the graphic I shared in church on Life Stages. Here it is! God’s grace on you as you live a focused life. St Paul’s words are phenomenal in this regard…

‘You’ve all been to the stadium and seen the athletes race. Everyone runs; one wins. Run to win. All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. You’re after one that’s gold eternally. I don’t know about you, but I’m running hard for the finish line. I’m giving it everything I’ve got. No sloppy living for me! I’m staying alert and in top condition. I’m not going to get caught napping, telling everyone else all about it and then missing out myself.’ 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (The Message)

  3. Hello! Hope all is well with you. I found the same especially challenging when it came to 25 -35. I don’t know my purpose so I fasted three days without food and water and prayed but God is on mteja . I prayed for an anointing of the Holy Spirit and the power to ppray in tongues especially now that I also acknowledge that I do not what to pray for and how to pray, I need the Holy Spirit to guide me. I’m especially worried because I’m in a foreign land that is very secular and pursuing to finish a course that I am not passionate about. I need help. I need to stop living a defeated and dark life, I need to live a victorious life and be the light of the world as our Lord and Saviour Jesus said. Pray for me, pray hard.
