So, guess what? My exam went great. I felt a feeling of accomplishment when I was done. I felt like staying up for the WHOLE night was worth it...he he he. Got back yesterday and slept like a log of wood. Logs don't budge, even when insects are biting and scratching their barks...they just don't budge. No element of alarm clocks or phones ringing off the hook (even with my Caribean dance ring tone) could wake me up...
I'm alert now...fully on my toes...up and doing! Ready to join CLUB 400. So have you even heard of club 400? You probably haven't heard of this club. Lolll...if you haven't, well let me use this opportunity to introduce you to club 400. Club 400 is made up of various men and women all over the world...people from different races and ethnic groups. People who see their goal at the opposite side of the ocean, and are determined to cross over...by crook or by hook...I nick-named this CLUB...and this is the tenet of the club:
"So David went, he and six hundred men who were with him, and came to the Brook Besor, where those stayed who were left behind. BUT David pursued, he and FOUR HUNDRED MEN, for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross Brook Besor..." 1 Samuel 30:9
So you can see why I call this new thing in town "club 400?" 400 is the number. Its the number of relentless, courageous, determined, bold, brave, convicted, dauntless, fearless, indomitable, intrepid, persistent, purposeful, self-confident, steadfast, audacious, unafraid, and valiant people. It's the number of people that won't get LEFT BEHIND.
The remaining 200 folk knew that being strong mattered. But they decided to give up the fight. They told David not to worry, they'd stay back and watch the kids at home. They didn't want to die on the battle field. They wanted the 400 to go ahead and leave them behind. After all, they fought the last war and needed to relax and chill this time. They were scared of the things ahead. But most of all, they allowed weakness to overcome them. They allowed defeat to bring them down on their weak knees.
The 400 were really not the strongest people. They weren't champions, and neither were they superheroes. But they trusted in something that was higher than their human power...and decided to cross the river. They decided to go to war.
"Many are called, but only few are chosen," no one will fight your spiritual war for you. You can't rely on the prayer warriors and the pastors. There's someone that wants to defeat your purpose even before you finally make the decision to go to the altar. Don't chill or relax, you're invited to join CLUB 400...and the time is NOW!
