Run. Don’t Walk.

Standard

Back in Elementary School, I remember having to run half a mile during P.E. Boy Oh boy that sure seemed like a lot back than. Yet, nobody walked, we all ran as fast as our lil’ feet could go. Why? Well, because we all knew once you finish your laps the teacher would give you a little charm to represent your completion of the task. Every kid wanted to have more and more as the year went on. So even when the last days of the year approached, when summer was only a couple days away, we all ran, no one walked.
On my roadway, God saved me with His love and mercy. He displayed before me the turns to take to change my destination, because without Him I was headed straight for hell. Before running the laps in P.E. every student had to make sure they were wearing tennis shoes and clothing that was comfortable for running. All things that would get in the way were taken off and put aside. Just like that, we are called to let go of all the things which slow us down on our run during this journey. “…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. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame…” -Hebrews 12:1b-2a.
The saying is “Don’t talk the talk, but walk the walk.” Well, I say, don’t just talk, but RUN. Just as kids in a P.E. class get excited about receiving a charm for completing their laps, we as God’s children, loved and truly cherished by Him, should find extensive joy in not walking, but running towards Jesus on our roadway. He is the prize which we will get to see once we reach our destination. “Oh I’m running to Your arms, I’m running to Your arms.” So Run. Don’t Walk. IMG_0369

    • That’s so true! I’m pretty thankful for the short lessons you gave us the last couple months. I’ve been able to use some of your tips when thinking of how to write.
