Always Be Humble

Have you been bombarded from every direction lately? Have you tried to slip the punches in the cage of life but find yourself tired and defeated? Don’t let pride keep you from the victory that your Heavenly Trainer has for you. Stand firm in His promises and humble yourself before Him and your opponent will begin to wear down. You will find as you listen to that small still voice in your corner that you have reached…

FOCUS!!

Do you have a vision for your future? Are you excited about what is happening in your life? Don’t let life’s ups and downs get to you and destroy your dreams. We all make mistakes but it is what we do and how we act, when we do make those mistakes that shape our character. When you do fail you need to be humble and confess your faults. When you see someone else fail you need to give them a hand up and encourage them to… Continue

NEVER QUIT!

“A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.”

Character

Character is not just something we put into our lives, but it is what comes out of our lives in those hurried times. It is beyond a system of values or virtue we learn from our parents, or even at church. Character is who you are to God Himself and those around you. It is the real you! The church and parents must teach it, but they cannot insure its function. That is the responsibility of our choice, a determination we… Continue

Respecting Authority

When you are in relationship with God, He provides you with protection and favor. But as you belittle and ctiticize those people He has placed in authority over you, that protection and favor is lifted from you. the bottom line is that God expects you to respect Him and His choices. He expects that you will respect the people He's placed in authority over you. That doesn't mean you have to agree with every one of…

Give your best

Always give your best in every round. We may not always feel like performing at our best but we can't let little things side track us or get in our way. After all we have spent countless hours in the gym preparing for this fight. Now is the time to use self control and be alert. Don't give into your fears or let your emotions drain your strength and don't get caught up in negative thoughts or anger. Now is the time focus… Continue

Focus

Are you focused on your future? Are you prepared for what is next? Not every fighter that climbs on the mat or enters the cage will win. There can be limiting factors like illness, or injuries, or other things that are out of our control. As we fight through all the limiting factors of this life we need to keep focused on our training and conditioning even though circumstances arise that may hinder our performance. We… Continue

Attitude

Treat others with respect and dignity. Don't be over confident or prideful but look to treat others as you would have them treat you. Be disciplined in your actions and your speech. Our attitude can determine the outcome of our fight before it even starts. Bad attitudes lead to poor training habits, poor eating habits, loss of training partners, and loss of self esteem. Humble yourself, today try having…

Our opponent

Our opponent is cunning and deceiving. He looks to snap, tap, or nap you in any way he can. He uses our fears, our pride and our anger against us. We need to stand firm and not be prideful or over confident. We need to avoid letting fear and anger take control. Wait don't rush in but be patient waiting for the right opportunity to shoot in and score the take down. If we stick with our game plan and listen to our corner… Continue

Training

Training is needed to strengthen not only your physical body but also your mind and spirit. As we circuit train, lift weights, run, swim and work on our cardio we also need to make sure that we keep our mind and spirit exercised in reading and meditating on God's word. Too often we forget  that we are in a spiritual battle. We need to prepare daily for the battles not only in the physical realm but in the spirtual as well.… Continue
