The obstacle courses used for competitions like American Ninja Warrior appear to be designed for the cruel purpose of tripping up or knocking down courageous, well-meaning athletes. To successfully complete the course, these men and women must be strong, well-balanced, confident and, did I mention, REALLY STRONG?
Sometimes it appears life is designed like one of those obstacle courses. Stuff comes our way and it’s hard to hang on; hard to keep our balance; hard to STAND FIRM.
For 3 Sundays, with God’s help, we can stay strong, hang tough and STAND FIRM.
