Many times during a baseball game, you have players swinging for the fences (trying to hit a home run0. Doing everything they can to muster up enough power to hit a home run. When in actuality, a single, double, walk, or triple can do just as much damage to the opposing pitcher and team than the proverbial "girls dig the long ball."
It's what I call "small wins." The same is true in Life! Take each day, each pain, and each challenge a small step at a time. When I was going through my most challenging time of my life (radiation flare ups), it helped me tremendously to ask our Lord to give my body relief for this particular hour, for a couple of hours, etc instead of asking for the entire pain to "just" completely go away. Through the small wins, I appreciated and gained more strength every hour that was granted to me with no pain.
This helped my spirit grow stronger, my faith stayed strong as each small win lead me down a path of victory....until finally, I was down to one hour of pain per day, and now rocking each day with a strong vibe and vigor, and of course NO Pain.
It's the small wins in life we have tendency to overlook and cast a shadow. The small wins lead us to great victories in life. I ask that you pray for those who need some type of healing today. Pray for those who need a small win right now in their life...pray they can get through today/tonight. Pray that they can see the light at the end of the tunnel and keep pushing forward. They, and we, rely on your prayers and strength.
Today, hit a single or double towards your goals in life or for someone.
I remember a small win just before my mother passed; She wanted me to take her outside so she could breathe fresh air and feel the sun beam off of her skin. At that moment in time, all she wanted to feel is the sun on her arms, legs, forehead, face, etc., and take a deep breathe of fresh air into her lungs. It was a small thing, but it meant so much to her and it gave her a couple of wins before passing on to the Lord.

Love you for reading my Blog!
Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
