– Philippians 4:13
This passage found in the New Testament is one of many very inspirational and motivational passages in the bible. This passage illustrates how Christ gives you the strength to overcome any obstacle. Sometimes when things don’t go as planned, one seeks comfort to get through or fulfill the task at hand. This passage is a great help in these tough moments in life, not to mention in the good moments as well when we thank God for our accomplishments.
The passage presented is not only present in sermons, but also in major sporting events such as by fans in the Major League Baseball World Series. In baseball, there is a lot of failure percentage involved during each game and strongly throughout the season and baseball players often refer to Christian passages and values to keep a healthy mental and spiritual balance in their lives. In my case my mother introduced this passage to me early in my life and I personally have used this passage in my every day life scenarios. I usually use it in baseball where it is written in the inside of my caps, so I can have a brief prayer before, during, and/or after games to reach serenity and confidence to motivate me throughout my performance. It is awesome to know that God is always there to comfort and strengthen us!
