Pondering what I heard at the retreat for elite Olympic coaches.

1. Using our talent with excellence doesn’t prove our self worth rather it expresses our worth that is rooted in Christ.

2. God is a great steward of our pain.

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. (Psalm 56:8 NLT)

3. Perceptions of being loved and having a safe environment directly contribute to our self identity.

How do they hit you?
