If you watch sports at all there is this thing that happens in games called momentum. Successful teams will take advantage of momentum and ride it to victory. It’s those game changing moments. Someone will make a huge play and it will turn the entire game around for his team. In football that might be a huge interception by the defense to stop a scoring drive or a timely sack that forces the opponent to punt the ball. Good teams will take that opportunity to turn around and score. In life we have highs and lows. We can also take advantage of momentum. A new year is a perfect opportunity to change the game. The excitement and hope that comes with a New Year is a momentum moment. Let’s take this time to do good. Maybe this is what you needed to motivate yourself to eat better or make new friendships. Maybe you are committing to read the word or spend more time in prayer. This is the time. You just intercepted the pig skin go run a touchdown.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.
