In your lifetime, there will be moments when you will be required to push. These moments happen when you get behind your purpose, and it appears that it has stalled in the middle of the road. You may want to move on to the next step, but you lack the enthusiasm and momentum needed to do so. During these moments you have to muster up the strength, lower your shoulders, breathe, and push! You must push those things which appears to have died. However, you can’t let it die because of the significance it has in your future. You must push the things which has carried you but is now out of gas. You have to push that of which others have determined to be valueless, back into brilliance. You must also push yourself into a position of effectiveness in order to meet the needs of others who depend on you to survive.

When you get too far ahead of yourself, you may realize that you have left someone behind. It might have gotten lost in the confusion, but now you realize that you need them. You must reach behind and pull them to where you are. Without them, you may not be able to reach the next phase of which God has prepared for you, and for them as well.

Believe it or not, there is a prize waiting for you at the end your journey. After all of the excitement that life brings, fades away, and the music stops and the winds calm, a prize awaits to be redeemed by you. The irony of it all is your reward was uniquely prepared and promised well before your first steps were planted on the road of life. God promises to give each and every one of us His very best. That is how much he loves us. Your decisions, both the good ones and bad ones, will play a role as to when and how the moment will happen.

In the meantime, you must push your way through, pull that which has fallen behind, and press on to redeem your prize that God promises.
