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.
1 Corinthians 9:24-25
I was so proud of my two little granddaughters on Friday. They ran the entire two miles of the Terry Fox run at their school...and they came in near the front of the pack. At six years old...that's determination! I'm sure it helped to have a few cheerleaders to encourage them along the way. Daddy ran alongside...Mommy and Ryder walked the route...Grammy and Auntie Heidi waited for them at the half-way mark and cheered them on.
And so it is in the 'race' of life...we must run to win. A few cheerleaders along the way make a huge difference...if we surround ourselves with friends who encourage us on our journey, the road is so much easier. So set your sights on the goal...discount the pain...don't look back...and let's meet at the finish line!
