Tennis Shoes: How to Run for your Life

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his word.

Now let’s dress our bodies like we dress our souls EVERYDAY!

Tennis Shoes: How to Run for your Life

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Hebrew 12:1 NKJV

Hey friend!! How are you doing today? You got your tennis shoes on? We got a race to run.  Everyday we are running to live our best lives. Now in order to run like we should, we have to follow Gods word. It instructs us to laying aside those weights that distract us from focusing on where we are going. A weight is defined as heaviness. Things like fear, doubt, negativity, confusion, and drama has got to go! Now with this lighter load we have more room for love, peace, joy, and happiness.

Endurance is patience. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delays. Wow! I know we have all been there. Everything is going so well then comes that old monkey wrench messing up our plans. No doubt things are  subject to change without notice, but that’s life. How will you choose to run through it?

How should you run? First of all get some rest. Stop stressing over stuff. Give “them” and “it” over to the Good Lord and go to sleep. Second, practice makes the perfect pace because we are all at different places in our lives. The more you practice your faith, those bumps in the road will not so easily throw you off your rhythm. finally, make sure you take your daily dose of vitamin GHW, that is short for Gods Holy Word.  A lot of how we run comes from what we put in our minds and bodies. When we put God’s word in our mind, we learn to encourage our own souls. And let’s be real, other than God, nobody know like you do about you.

We are each others keeper. Remember the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
