Never let the odds keep you from pursuing what you know in your heart you were meant to do. (Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige, considered by some to be the best pitcher in baseball history)

When you consider the odds stacked against Satchel Paige, you marvel at his gracious spirit. An outstanding pitcher in the American Negro League, he wasn’t given an opportunity to play Major League baseball until late in his career. But, given the opportunity, he made the best of it, leaving an outstanding witness to the value of pursuing what you really want to achieve.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4) The desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. (Proverbs 13:4)
