Ever be good at something yet every victory feels empty?
Maybe the crowns you thinking you are competing for aren’t the crowns you should be worried about. Sometimes doing something challenging should be based on a celebration of what our bodies can achieve and thru that celebration, inspire and motivate others to aspire to be able to put out the effort they are capable of. It may not be at the same level as others, but at the end of the day, a champion experience can be achieved by full effort thru participation instead of watching on the sidelines.
1 Corinthians 9:25 : "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."
