Life is like a game of baseball, we do very well for a period of time. Our batting average rises, but then we get struck out. Everytime we come to the plate it seems that life throws us a curveball. Sometimes we get hit and other times we strike out. It's not a fun series of events, but we have to get up and dust ourselves off and try try again.

We all want to be the one who gets the home run, the only way we can truly be successful is to keep practicing. The more we follow Jesus, the more we read his word and begin to live according to his will, the better we will become.

Before long, we will be hitting home runs. We will be doing better than we can ever imagine. That is the truly amazing part about God, no matter how bad we think we have it, he surprizes us and shows us that everything is going to be ok.

We need Jesus in our lives. No matter how good we think we are, the moment we go without Jesus is the beginning of the end. We'll get struck out over and over again, we have to live by his word daily, otherwise we will become weak in the spirit and will be vulnerable to every attack the devil can send our way.

We can do nothing apart from Jesus, he is like the blood in our bodies. Without it, we will surely die.

So if you want to be a pro, get those home runs in life you need Jesus. It's as simple as that.
