Good Apples Friday // Trust in God

Welcome to Good Apples Friday
Well I'm here typing with my sister's new awesome laptop. thanks sis. big sis's are the best guys.
I first want to apologize for not posting Tuesday. An all day trip to the water park just slipped up and I was to busy to post. But this Tuesday kinda relates to my post today.

I'm first going to talk about not doubting yourself.
And then, I'm going to talk about never giving up.

On Tuesday after our family had a nice time swimming I went to my first ever tumbling class. I admit I was a little nervous mainly about being around new people though. The class turned out great. I was a little behind everyone in m skills, but soon I caught up. I was extremely happy to hear my teacher's telling my parents that I was awesome and I was catching up with the other students who've been doing classes longer. And I'm not here to brag. I'm here to say.


A year ago I started loving gymnastics and doing it at home. Firstly, if I ever wanted to play professionally I'd have a disadvantage because of the age I was already at. But I loved gymnastics. So, I worked hard. I looked up videos on YouTube. Sometimes I got discouraged because I loved gymnastics a lot, but lessons are expansive. I still want to train though. Even if I have to quit classes, I'll still be learning. It'll be hard, but I know that if God really wants me to be a gymnast it'll happen even if I'm teaching myself on the internet.

So, never give up guys. Never. Never doubt yourself and say, "Oh I'm to old," and "Oh I can't do this." Because remember that verse in Philippians that we say all the time.

After the long nights that I watch the Olympics sometimes I just think. If only that could be me.
Sure the possibilities are maybe small for me to go to the Olympics someday, but never say you can't.
My dad taught me never to say I want to do this, but I probably can't. Because you'll never do it if you keep saying you can't. I know that it'll be totally rare for me to go to the Olympics. But I know that I have a mighty God. And he has a special plan for me. And if it's the Olympics I'll praise him. And if it's not the Olympics, I'll praise him.

Lord, help me to trust in you. Even though it seems like it could never happen help me to know that you are God. And you control my life. Help me to never say I can't but to work hard. And most of all help me to glorify you in whatever I do.

This is my prayer.

hope you like!

bouncing in to say bye,

p.s. I don't mean to brag. I'm just trying to give you an example.


  1. That's so cool that you are learning gymnastics from you tube, I never thought about that. I have always loved gymnastics but was never able too because it is expensive, but learning from YouTube is an awesome idea. I might actually try that. Do u have any beginner video recommendations? BTW I love your blog. Its really fun, and encouraging.

  2. Definitely try to do that. It's definitely a start. Not really. If you have any questions about skills though I'd love to help. Thanks! I'm glad you think so! Thanks for reading!

  3. Thank you for this encouraging post. I enjoyed it immensely.
