The rewards of Patience and Endurance

The words from the book of Hebrews ring true for me in my personal life especially today. Today I embarked on a path that was both unexpected and life changing. After 4 years, I picked up a racquet and hit a tennis ball again. It was an amazing feeling and although I had much rust on my game and my body feeling like i got hit by a linebacker, I had a blast. Thank you lord for this.

What about you? Is life feeling repetitious and predictable? Are you still waiting for your blessing? Please hang in there. Reply on Gods word and hold on the the promises he whispered in your heart. Have a good night my bothers and sister. PJSLB

Inspirational sayings for my students

Today, some of my students will be playing their first tennis match and im excited and nervous for them.  I have a tradition of writing a short note and sharing some words of encouragement to them that is personal and unique to just them.  Below are some of the quotes i used this year.

Please say a prayer for these young/future leaders of our church as they play their first match.  I pray that regardless of the score and outcome, that they always seek and reflect God’s glory.  Im nervous for them!!! -PJSLB
