As I sit here with realization that I will be running in my 2nd full marathon (26.2 miles) at the end of the month. I still remember my first race I ever ran and the advice I received by another long time racer. He said; “as you are running your race, do not run the other person’s race, even if they are passing you up, remember they have trained for their race, you have trained for your own. So run your race and not theirs”.
God has given us this great life to run, with its may ups and down, but as we go on, it is easy to get distracted in our walk with Him. To begin to get our focus on what another ministry is doing and want to do the same, to see where another believer is going and want to go to the same place. We have to remember just because another is doing it does not mean necessarily that He has called us to the same thing. We are the Body of Christ made of many different parts, each one of us has a job to do, each one of us has a race to run. Let us make sure we are running our own race, and then we can say as at the end of our race, just as St. Paul; I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7
RUN YOUR RACE!!!
