But our coach reminded us, “It ain’t over until the clock says zero.”
There’s a lot of truth to my coach’s statement. It’s not about how you start; it’s about how you finish. Maybe your life didn’t start fantastic, or it isn’t going well right now. If you’re living and breathing right now, you still have time to finish strong.
Finishing solid means staying faithful until the end. Remaining loyal to God, our family, and doing the very thing God has called you to do.

Many have started the Christian life. The question remains – Will we finish well?
