What Do I Know of Holy? {When I Stand}

Today is huge day of celebration for me and Worthy of the Prize Sports Ministries!

The Texas Rangers are going to the World Series and my book is FINALLY going to print!!! Wooohooo!!!

In celebration, we are having a BIG giveaway on the Worthy of the Prize facebook page including an autographed baseball signed by THE Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers and a faith memory pack from Scripture Art Designs {the company of Josh Hamilton's wife and sister-in-law who I happen to be in partnership with} and MUCH more!

Be sure to hop on over to our facebook page and join in the celebration!

So I found this on Pinterest the other day and I.fell.in.love.

Seriously, this is my life goal. The very reason why I live. The very reason why Worthy of the Prize exists.

When all is said and done. When the great race has been won. I want to be found worthy of the prize.

Growing up, I always knew that God had gifted me with these athletic talents and abilities for a reason, a chosen purpose---more than just to win an earthly prize.

This great gift I have been given
I am not worthy of
It’s only by the wondrous grace
Of my Lord above

So I wait upon you Oh Lord
I do not want to fall
It’s your will I desire
Only your will above all

I know you have great plans for me
But I just feel so lost
What do you have in store for me?
I will go despite the cost

It is me my sweet child
That you are yearning for
It is me who is your destiny
I am your great reward

My plan is for you to know me
And to become just like my son
I promise to come back for you
When all is said and done

For now enjoy my presence
Lead others to my grace
Don’t worry about tomorrow
Simply live life for today

They are for his glory, to bring others to his name---to win a heavenly prize, the ultimate prize in Christ.

You can read more about how to gain the ultimate prize in Christ here.

It is my hope and prayer that when I stand before the throne at the end of my life, I will be able to say with Paul:

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day---and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. {2 Timothy 4:7-8}

What are you living for?!

  1. Great post once again Erin! I really appreciate you taking the time to share her on Cap Creations.

    It is soooo hard sometimes to remember that we are NOT living here on this Earth for ourselves. Thank you for the reminder. "To live your life you've got to loose it, and all the loosers get a crown."
