Freedom to lose

I have wondered what I might share with you on this Freedom Friday, all week. My heart is in a stirring season. I have found myself taking huge deep breaths all week to calm the racing in my heart. My brain is on overload and well, its overwhelmed.

My family loves baseball. My big brother played baseball all the way through college. Much of my growing up was spent at the baseball field. So, when I saw this meme this morning it brought a calm over me.

“You lose, you smile and you come back the next day. You win, you smile and you come back the next day.” ~ Ken Griffey Jr. (one of the best baseball players of all time)


Some days are a win and some days are a lose. This is true in our walk with Jesus also. Some days are a win and most days are a lose BUT everyday we come back to the lover of our soul. Everyday we come back to Jesus Christ who won the battle between death and Life.

The unfailing love of the Lord never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!"  Lamentations 3:22-23

It’s ok to lose the battle today. Jesus already won the war.
