Finish the race

By: Jhamar Forbes

Here’s an encouraging word for everybody in life who wants to quit.

Every race has a start and a finish. You entered this race believing you would finish in the best shape with flying colors.

You take off full throttle. Boom…somebody passes you, and somebody else and more people leave you behind. Then, there are hurdles in the way and then there’s a rock in the way. You jump over them thinking it was a piece of cake. Then boom! You trip, fall and scrape your knees.

You get back up and fall again and again and again. The last time you fall, you lay there and look up at the finish line.

It seems like everything you do isn’t helping you and the finish line seems miles away, but you hear in your ear, somebody cheering you on.

Somebody depending on you to finish. You crawl, slowly getting up. You take on every obstacle and pass it head on beaten, broken, and shattered. But guess what? You finished the race, passing with flying colors and in the best shape. But how can you be in the best shape if you’re beaten, broken, shattered and your knees are scraped?

You’re in the best shape, passing with flying colors because no matter what happened, how many times you fell in life, no matter what obstacles beat the breaks off you, you got up to finish the race.

You took some losses…Lost some friends…

Struggled…House to house..Friends & family giving up & doubting you…Broken marriages…Molested…

Adopted…Broken homes…Broke parents…

Constant deaths in the family and so on…

But no matter what your circumstance was in your life, you are still here standing strong to tell your story and when you finally reach the finish line of life…

You will realize it was worth fighting for…

Keep pushing, keep getting up, keep learning, keep wanting to be better.

Never give up…The race is not over & somebody is depending on you to finish.
