Batting a Thousand

27 Oct

Batting a Thousand…

In baseball, there is a saying called “batting a thousand.” Batting a thousand means perfection – you get a hit every time, you never strike out and you never get called out. No one can do it.

In baseball, at the end of the year, they come up with averages – how well people did, etc. It turns out that 300 percent is really good; that is one out of three. Even baseball’s greatest players say that 300 is great.

In the Lord, good comes out of bad. If we are expecting perfection by never messing up, it is just not going to happen. Even out of falling, good comes. In God, even when we fall, if we repent and get up, it will be good.

So stop dwelling on the fact that you messed up. In God batting a thousand is not about never falling, it’s about getting up and finishing the course He gave us.

It’s not about messing up, it’s about repenting, coming back, hoping, and persevering. You just persevere and no matter what, my friend, you’ll end up in God’s grace, batting a thousand.

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

If you mess up today, don’t beat yourself up over it. Get up, repent, and start over again in the grace of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
