What’s your handicap?

Galatians 4:13-14 As you know, it was because of an illness that I first preached the gospel to you, and even though my illness was a trial to you, you did not treat me with contempt or scorn. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were an angel of God, as if I were Christ Jesus himself.

A blind man can see the glass half full where a man with 20/20 vision can see the glass half empty.

I wonder how many times we feel that we have a handicap that prevents us from fulfilling our potential?

Handicaps can only disable us if we let them. This is true not only a physical challenges, but of emotional and intellectual ones as well. I believe that real and Lasting limitations are created in our minds, not our bodies. Rodger Crawford

As a golfer I have really struggle at times with my thought processes on the golf course. If you are a golfer you can relate to what I’m going to say. It always starts on the First Tee. The battle in the mind begins. Many times I’ve had this exact thinking process . All I want to do is get it in the Fairway. Or you’re thinking, I don’t want to hit it into the trees. What’s the correct mindset?

I’m going to walk up to the First Tee. I’m going to tee up my ball and I’m going to hit it down the left side with a slight fade I’m going to end up in the middle right of the fairway.

Everything that I’ve done in my life includes my thinking process. What I have figured out about the game of golf is

My mind determines my golf score more than my golf swing does.

I can’t begin to tell you how many times my mind has cost me Strokes on the golf course. When you hit that bad shot in the water or out of bounds or in the trees. You literally have to take your next thought process captive. Or you will hit another bad shot. Tell me it’s not so.

I remember telling myself you always have to hit your next shot from where your previous shot lands. But then right in the middle of my golf swing that negative thought Pops in my head and I shank it right into the woods.

The point is, it’s the mind and your thought process, is the glass half full or is the glass half empty.

If you don’t make up your mind then your unmade mind will un-make you.
