“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” – 1 Corinthians 9:24
…the world we live in moves at a head-spinning pace these days… it’s tough to keep up… but in the swirling of the dust, we can get disoriented, discouraged, disappointed…
In my own life, it’s been the encouragement of others, words of wisdom, stories of perseverance, new perspectives that have spurred me to keep on running…
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” – Hebrews 12:1
Over the past year, I’ve grown in my love for encouraging others through writing. It’s my hope that through this site I can encourage others with my ponderings, my observations, and all that I’m learning in life. Sometimes all we need is to hear someone else’s story so we can share a “me too!” moment. Knowing we are not alone, we can persevere in what is before us.
And so, let us persevere and even find community as we each tie on our running shoes, don our activewear, and run through the valleys and up the mountains together to reach the prize set before us.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9
