Both winning and losing are only for a season. In my life I have won and lost — people, places, things. When I was losing I was actually gaining endurance for much bigger races ahead.
Here are some beautiful words from St. Paul:
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”
