DADs…as you know, many runners or athletes will tell you...that after a long race or work out…it is very important that you rest and allow time for your body to recover.
 
As a runner…running everyday at the same level without recovery time is detrimental not only to your long range work out goals…but to your immediate health as well.
 
My favorite way to recover is to reward myself with a day off and to drink plenty of fluids to allow my body to fully recuperate.
 
In our daily busy schedules…we often feel like we have been running. Some days more than others! And that is when we need to find our ultimate rest and recovery in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
 
You see like a runner, we need the type of recovery and rest from the work outs of life that we daily face…that allows us to endure.  

In Matthew 11:28-30, we are reminded by Jesus Himself,
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

It is only in His presence that we can truly receive the rest required to get us back on the track…tomorrow…fully recovered to do His will and to run the racerepresenting Him in all we do!
 
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…
and so is every day…
God gives you! 
So…C’mon men…
Suit Up!
