It is not a Sprint!

After our lovely relaxing holiday we have already hit the ground running. A new year, new school experiences for the boys, new adventures in ministry and a whole lot of other things, all acting  simultaneously, have made us a little breathless.

But, then I was reminded, LIFE is not a SPRINT, it is a marathon. If you are finding yourself in the same position as we are - take stock and remind yourself that you can't run through life at a SPRINT. Sure, we can try, but in the end, we will hit the wall and then be forced to rest.

I am trying to heed my own advice, but let's remember these words from Paul - may they motivate us to run with endurance.

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us." - Hebrews 12:1

May God's Grace be upon you today,
