This is a question I deal with a lot. I understand that everything I have was given to me by God, and it’s only His will that’s even allowing me to breathe at this moment, but I struggle with how to feel about the things I’ve done with what God’s given me. Or even more so, the correct way to approach a competition, like a race. Is it okay to want to win? How do you balance your understanding that God loves you no matter what with wanting to do well? How do you balance knowing your talents are a gift of God and wanting to take credit for how you use them? And how do do something like runa race for God’s glory–how do you offer something like that up?
Anyway, lots of ramblings. I’m interested in you responses!
