Running the Race
Though I have physical challenges I probably could have walked the 5K but I volunteered to encourage the runner/walker. Why?
Isn't life just like a race? You're walking or running and then something tries to intercept your stride. Just when you think you are about to arrive a curb ball come your way. It might even knock you down. The Bible says, "for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again." (Proverbs 24:16).
There is this on going "pick me up" that the Lord is ministering to us. Get up Liz, keep running, you are almost there; don't stop; look toward the Prize! Jesus reminds us "in this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
So let's go walking and if able let's run!
I will let my mouth cheer the runner tomorrow. I will encourage the one running the race to finish just like Jesus does to us. I hear we might even have snow; this is April, right? Well, if is snows we'll make a snowman and place a sign on him that reads, "press on toward the goal."
It will be a great event to have participants persevere!. Let God be praised! So, come on; get your sneakers ready, we are running the race!
It's not too late, this is a REAL EVENT tomorrow for the entire family, April 9th,
5K Run/Walk Goshen, NY
God bless you!~Liz
