Let God Do The Pushing For You ......

Hello Blogsville!!!! How have Y`all Been??? I have been good, just been busy with trials and after which i went on a mini vacation before Pre-season. Pre-season is a period where Footballers go through hectic drills just to get ready for the new season. This Year`s Pre-season begins in late August,knowing how crazy pre-season can be my usual preparation mode was to try take my mind of it coz thinking how hectic it is alone is enough to make you wanna Quit. I developed a whole new attitude after last year`s session after having a chat with a Local who was a trench digger. It was 5am in the morning ,we assembled at the base of a mountain in the blistering cold. Fitness coach tells us we have 1hr  to  get up the mountain , do another 2km run and the report back to base.

We were followed by the team bus and were handed water or being picked up if we fail to make it,being picked up means you are not ready for business and you not gonna get signed for that season. So no matter what happens U dare not get on the bus. We all made it up,did the 2km run and back to base but not under an hour coz we could barely lift our legs after getting up the Mountain. All the Coach wanted was for us to make a good time and he was impressed  coz we were only 15mins late.

We went back to our hotel,had breakfast took a nap and woke up to have lunch. After lunch i decided to take a walk, i got to the junction sat at the bus stop where i met the trench digger. We exchanged pleasantries,got talking and he told me he saw us run up the mountain. Immediately i started to tell him how tedious it was and how hard you had to push yourself in order to beat time and all that,i felt i was not making sense coz he did`t seem interested ,well what does he know he is not an athlete so he would not understand.

He looked At me and said that is hard, but look You ran for just 1hr,i`m a trench digger and i dig from 6 to 6 . 6 to 6 ??? i asked and he said yes and the also had to meet a dead line coz it was a telecom project and their contract would be terminated if they don`t. Before i met this guy i felt i had the hardest task of Pre-seaon but after meeting him i thought otherwise. I asked how he does it,how does he manage to go day in day out just digging,its crazy and its enough to make you break down. I don`t do anything he said,i just ask GOD to do the Pushing for me,although painful and tedious i know he controls  every swing of the digger.
I left the bus stop knowing that choosing to be alone or asking GOD for help is my choice to make & trust me,i let him do the PUSHING for me.

No matter what field,industry or situation you find yourselves always remember to ask GOD to do the Pushing for you. :)
