A Prayer Of Anticipation

Lord Jesus, even as athletes go into strict training to reach their physical goals, there is much sacrifice involved.  Their appetites, exercise, endurance, activities, and their mindset must work toward their physical goal.  I am willing to experience earthly loss in exchange for heavenly gain.  I want to know You, Jesus, and the power of Your resurrection and even the fellowship of Your sufferings.  As I fix my eyes upon You, Lord, the heavenly crown of righteousness that awaits me surpasses my desire for worldly accomplishments or human praise.   I anticipate with great joy that which is yet to come when I am crowned with the crown of righteousness by You, Lord, the righteous Judge.  Keep me faithful and trusting till that glorious day.
