March 29: Great Career

 

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 31:23-24

 

Today is the birthday of Denton True Young, who earned the nickname “Cy” for his cyclone-like pitching motion. Young would go on to win and lose more games than anyone in Major League history with a record of 511-316 and a career ERA of 2.63 over a 22-year career. Young would also win 20 or more games 15 times, and top the 30-win mark five times. The “Pitcher of the Year” award in both leagues is named for him. I would say he had a pretty great career.

 

The Psalmist gives advice on how to have a great career as a believer. In our Scripture lesson today, he says we must love the Lord, be strong, and take heart because our hope is in Him. If we can truly master those things, God will be proud of the way we represent Him. When we love Him, we want the best for Him, so we will serve Him even better! When we hope in Him, we will have the strength to withstand whatever this world brings to us. God never promised that following Him would be easy, but He promised He would always be there for us! Love Him, serve Him, and trust Him.

  1. How would you rate your “career” as a Christian?

  2. Why is love the most important ingredient for a successful walk with God?

  3. What do you need to do to get your walk with God on the right track?

God wants us to live happy and productive lives for Him and the Psalmist gives us the key!

Thanks for stopping by to see me. I'm going to try to find one miutne to order your book tomorrow...I've been SO busy but I promise to come back often...I really want to get to know you more here in blogland. How did it go in NC? We spent a weekend in the mountains there last summer at a place called Bonclarken. Our (grown) kids live in SC. I love these last couple of posts you did. Psalm 9:10 is a great verse. I'm the same kind of car passenger you are :) I pray that you will continue to fully trust HIM while on this wild ride...our times are in His hands and His ways are beyond tracing out!Yes He DOES have great plans for you!!
