EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: Run Your Race Blogger Widgets

Run Your Race

Tuesday, January 29, 2013


A prize racehorse trains with blinders on. Blinders allow the horse to stay focused and not to be spooked by distractions or by the maneuvers of the other horses and jockeys.

When the apostle Paul encouraged Timothy (and us) to run the race set before us and to keep our eyes on the prize, he was urging us to stay focused by saying, “You aren’t the first; you won’t be the last. You can do this . . . and heaven is gonna be worth it!”

Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, 
let us throw off everything that hinders 
and the sin that so easily entangles, 
and let us RUN WITH PERSEVERANCE
 the race marked out for us.
~ Hebrews 12:1

REAL-LIFE CHALLENGE: 
What are the things, people, or fears distracting you today? 
Write them down, and work on a game plan to overcome them. 
Like a racehorse, condition your life daily for the race. 
Ask God to help.
