DADs…the one thing I quickly learned the first 5K race I ever ran was that the adrenaline would kick in at the start of the race and as the runners all first took off...
I would find myself getting caught up in the others pace. Instead of trusting the pace that I had practiced for weeks during my work outs.
The funny thing that happened was that as I got back on my pace…I slowly but surely passed many of those that had sprinted past me at the start.
With God… it is the same. To be in flow with God’s pace is so important…and God’s pace is different for each of us.
With God it is not a sprint…but a marathon.
1 Corinthians 9:24
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?
Run in such a way as to get the prize.
What is important to God is not how we start the race…or even how fast our pace is…but that we are always moving forward…and that we actually finish the race that counts!
DADs…this Christmas season sure to pace yourself…and remember to "Run in such a way as to get the prize."
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! So…C’mon men…Suit Up!
