“Let me win.  But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
Special Olympics Oath

“Champions are not those who never fail, they are those who never quit…Men love winners.  They want to be identified with winners. Men open a newspaper and turn directly to the sports page because it features winners, while the front page usually features losers…Champions are the right man, in the right place, at the right time.  Timing is all important.

God has an eternal clock which was started from the beginning of time to make you become a champion for Him.  To become a  champion, you must see yourself  as a champion.  Hanging on to the fear of failure, the sins of others and past mistakes will keep you from becoming a champion.  Champions are made, not born.  Many champions start with severe handicaps in life, but in making the effort to overcome, they find the ability to continue until they have excelled beyond those even without handicaps.

The athlete, the farmer and the soldier all have different ways of winning.  Each of them does his training, plowing or exercising in private, and they show their abilities in public…The fainthearted never win, they wilt.  They start well, but fade before they finish…

Joshua was a member of the championship team.  He could hardly stand to see other men who didn’t feel the way he did, and finally issued the challenge that lives on forever:

‘Choose this day whom you will serve,
but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord’

I’m proud to be on Joshua’s team!”
