Struggling in the Dog Days
Phil 3:14 ‘I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’
It’s hot, humid and buggy in the racing business in the late summer and early fall. It seems like it rains more often which puts everyone on edge…the racers, promoters, track operators and media crews small and large. I have found when the bone-weary days hit, we must be on high alert against the attacks of the enemy. It’s easy to become discouraged when you’re tired, it’s late at night and you have to much time to ponder the motives of those around you which are usually nothing more than a figment of your imagination.
Life is filled with ups and downs. It is the normal cycle of life. As we close in on the last 3 months of the season, our teams are growing weary. It seems the road has been more difficult this year with equipment breakage, tire failures and a new added feature, unscrupulous competition who would lie, cheat and steal to get to the top. If you own a successful business, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
This is what we must remember, ‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’ Gal 6:9 As some events go away, the Lord is replacing them with new events and opportunities for our teams. The future is very bright for our company, all we have to do is keep moving forward, even when we don’t want to.
