Until recently, I defined "victory" as a description of human circumstance—having the bigger score in a basketball game, getting a sought-after job. Or in my case, winning a footrace.
The Small College Woman's Track Meet was one week away. I was entered in the 10,000-meter (6.2 mile) race, and I was already nervous about it. In an effort to clarify what I would be trying to do before, during, and after the race, I had been studying daily what the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings have to say about competition and victory. I soon found that victory was not the culmination of events nor could it be pinned to a certain moment in time. It was instead a reflection of what I valued, an ongoing state of mind. Mrs. Eddy writes: "To ascertain our progress, we must learn where our affections are placed and whom we acknowledge and obey as God....The objects we pursue and the spirit we manifest reveal our standpoint, and show what we are winning."
