Each Sunday in October, I’ve been sharing Beauty For the Heart and telling you things my Mom taught me before she died from gastric cancer in 2009. The first Sunday of October I shared about passing on our faith, then we realized that life is short and last Sunday, I shared with you how Mom taught me to look for the blessings.
Today I’ll end with this truth that Mom taught me ~~finishing is more important than starting.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 NLT says, “Finishing is better than starting.”
My Mom was always starting things. She was one of the most talented women I have ever known.
- For a season she decorated wedding cakes out of our home.
- She took and mastered calligraphy.
- She was a writer for Home Life Magazine and our local newspaper.
- She started a business called, Windows by Wanda, and made window treatments.
We often laughed at all the things my Mom started.
But the one thing my Mom started and finished was a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Mom chose to live her life following hard after Christ and she passed that down to me. Because of my Mom I have a relationship with Christ and now it’s time for me to take the baton of faith and share it with those that I come in contact with.
It’s not how we started the race but how will we finish this race?
I don’t want to drop the baton. I want to finish well!
So my question for you is this, when it’s all been said and done will you finish well?
Have a blessed Sunday!
