In training for the upcoming Comrades I have been finding it interesting learning what runners use to help them gain a little extra vooma for the race. Some people use gels, or Gu's, while others use sports drinks, coke, or certain energy bars. I guess one has to experiment with a whole range of things before we find the right thing for us.
This leads me to the scripture verse from Hebrews 13:9, which states:
"Your strength comes from God's grace, not from ...."
And so as we go about our business today, may we remember that our real strength for the Christian race comes from the GRACE of Jesus. This sustains us and gives us the spiritual vooma we need to complete the journey.
