Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight that so easily beset us, let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Word for Today: Run
I ran my first mini- marathon last year and I was not a runner! I didn’t like to run and if you would have told me I would run 1 mile, let alone 13 miles, I would have laugh in your face. But with the help of some of my girlfriends, I was encouraged to run. During the training, we started a little at a time, a mile one week and then 3 the next week, then 5 and so on. Two things I learned is that you want to have light clothing and shoes; nothing weighing you down and you need patience. If you stick with it, and don’t quit you will get to the finish line. It took me 3hrs., but I finished!
Same thing in life, let go of everything and everyone that is weighing you down and have patience… if you keep going forward in God, you will obtain that prize!
Take that and run with it!
