We hope to motivate others to conquer
their own fears by either training towards a triathlon goal or, even more
challenging, standing up for their beliefs when pressured to succumb.
Most of all, we encourage others to PERSEVERE. Philippians 3:14 says
for us to "Press on towards the
prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus"
Sometimes finishing a challenge seems like relief and
fulfillment. But we know gratification should come from how we play the
game. The ups and downs of the race course are where our strong points
shine and our weaknesses haunt us. Like in life, we are not focused on
ending it but on cresting each trialing hill as fast and honorably as we
can. The higher the hill, the more glorious the summit. By climbing with
Jesus at our side, the hill is never too high. The
satisfaction gets better throughout the race.
Team Soares is an invitation to
everyone to team up with each other and put God at the center. Shine
on. Press on. Know that the "climbs" are not futile but,
rather, meaningful and rewarding.
Our goal is that we and others will persevere
through all struggles in our careers, marriages, families, and just
day-to-day events. If it's something that pleases God, it CAN be
achieved with His help. We must not quit.. but
