Luckily, the Lord revealed the lesson to me very early on in the day. His message was simple, sometimes when things start, they start. Sometimes on day one, people are going to expect us to start off running and not look back. And sometimes they won’t, but regardless of whether day one is going to shoot us off the runners blocks or not, we show up prepared to do so.
This week, I learned the valuable lesson of being ready at the start of the race, on day one, whether I think there will be a warm up or not. And if I show up ready and day one is a warm up, then I have learned the wonderful skill of over preparation.
