"But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of Jesus Christ.’
May we keep focused on the will of God for our lives fulfilling His purpose for us daily. May He continuously help us keep our spiritual eyes on the unseen rather than the temporal. May we constantly be losing our lives for His life He wants to live through us. Finally, may all we do be: "simply for the love of God."
In His love.
Running is a form of worship for me. God gave me running for many purposes. I have experienced agony of defeat and ecstasy of victory knowing both was from Him. Yesterday we shared the ecstasy of victory as I finally broke 2 hours on a half marathon winning first in my age division. My time was 1:58:48. Every step was a gift from Him, and we shared the moment as I fully acknowledged His miraculous grace in my life. I was very focused on my finish, but I am much more focused on finishing the course He has laid out for me.
