Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem;
for He strengthens the bars of your gates
He grants peace to your borders
He sends His command to the earth;
"May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 15:5
An athlete, I am not. I've never been much of a competitor. Athletic talent and competitive gumption? I don't possess much of either. And I am OK with that. I am very thankful the Lord did not give me one gift without the other (i.e. "competitive gumption" without "athletic ability"). Eeek...the thought!

"For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16
