A Scottish athlete made an iron discus. What he didn’t know was that the discus used in official competition was made of wood with only an outer rim of iron. His was solid metal and weighed 3 or 4 times as much as those being used by other discus throwers.  For years he labored…then went to England for his first competition. When he arrived at the games, he was handed the official discus. He easily set a new record. He remained the uncontested champion for many years. This man trained under a heavy burden and became better for it.

May the God of all grace…after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”  I Peter 5:10.

    Dios te fortarlezca, provea, anime y tu cámara pueda ser reparada y no sea tan alto el precio a pagar.

  3. Qué bonita analogía. La verdad que te agradezco ampliamente el que la hayas puesto, porque cada vez que sienta que la carga me está siendo muy pesada, pensaré en que el Señor me está preparando para ser una campeona en sus caminos.
    Gracias,Andrés. Te envío un fuerte abrazo.
