Building strength, balance, power and grace from within
Building the Spirit
Faith is believing what you don't see.
"God has not promised peace without pain, joy without sorrow, nor sun without rain... But He did promise strength for the day, grace for the trials, and light for the way." -unknown
Starting your Day
By Debbie Vanden Berk
Inner core strength could be seen as faith, spirituality, and grace. After all, it is spirituality that is at the center of our being and faith that gets us through all difficulty be it training for our sport or the trials of life in general. An ice skater must work hard to have centered spins. Otherwise, the spin flies out of control, wobbles and bobbles, the skater gets nauseously dizzy, and often ends on the end rather than on a graceful edge. If our spirituality isn’t at the center of our life and our life lacks faith, our life spins out of control as well. Faith provides us with the grit to bear with training, the grit to focus and improve, and the grit to pick up after a fall or a loss. Faith is hard to define but we see it everyday …this depth of something extra that comes not only from training on this and that particular move or skill but something deep inside the athlete…something from the heart: Grace. more
Remember to Pray each day
I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day; I had so much to accomplish that I didn't have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task, "Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered. He answered, "You didn't ask."
I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on gray and bleak; I wondered why God didn't show me. He said, "But you didn't seek."
I tried to come into God's presence; I used all my keys at the lock, God gently and lovingly chided, "My child, you didn't knock."
I woke up early this morning, and paused before entering the day; I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.-unknown
