If you’re like me, you may feel like surviving your adolescence was a fight. You may have discovered that becoming the person you want to be, a person you can love, was a fight. If you are married and have kids you know you have to fight for your marriage and your children almost on a daily basis.
After all of that fighting, the last thing you want to do is hear that you have one more fight.
Over the weekend I watched a movie that really inspired me. This particular story’s main character didn’t have one obstacle in his life — he had a series that seemed never-ending. One of his mentors said these words to him at a strategic moment in the movie: “One more fight.”
For me, that one more fight is the fight to do what God has called me to do. Ministry in the words of Christ can be as simple as giving someone a cool glass of water. Then there are the moments when God asks, “Have I not called you?”
I am convinced that success requires one last fight. I believe fulfilling your calling requires one last fight. Doubt, fear, insecurities, and hangups are all ready to do battle to keep you on the median of mediocrity. Depression and recession dare you to dive into the pool of your dreams. Weariness and laziness hold you in a place of rest, but you are not done yet.
Take a deep breath and remember, the same God that delivered you out of the hands of… shall certainly deliver the victory into your hand if you decide to face one more fight.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9
