The Final Stretch

In NASCAR, the last lap is probably the most pivotal. The preparations, the pit stops, and the prestige driving throughout the whole race pay off for that one lucky driver. The driver and his team must be persistent in order to succeed, along with dealing with the problematic situations that arise throughout the race. In some ways, I relate a NASCAR race to my school year, or even to life itself.

No matter how good you are, you are bound to fail at some things. Whether it be a test, or just feeling inadequate, you aren't going to always come in first. If someone you know wrecks out, be careful not to make their problems effect you.

Keep persisting, and don't give up. Even when times get hard, we must continue to endure. Our endurance will eventually pay off.

If we endure to the end and keep persisting through adversity, will shall become victorious.

With the school year coming to a close, I know I must do all these things in order to be sucessful. I can't give up in the final lap, I can't let my victory slip away because I'm "too tired" or "not in the mood" to study for my finals and prepare.

The same goes for you, for whatever you need to achieve. If you give up, then you will not achieve what you desire. We mustn't give up, even if the odds are not in our favor. You have fans called family, a pit crew called the gospel, and a crew chief called Heavenly Father to help you be sucessful.

It is true the Chad is NO Heavenly Father. :)

Very good application of some sort of parable. That seminary teachin' is paying off for you.

You will do great. Get this week over and let's get to packing, shall we.
