Run Your Race

Hebrews 12:1-2

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,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Life is not, has never been and will never be a competition. Every person has their own unique race to run. Don’t look at what your neighbour has and envy them, you don’t know the hurdles they have had to overcome in their race in order to be at that point in their race.

What’s the point of competing with other people when you can simply stay in your lane and run in silence? The moment you look to your right or to your left, you lose focus of what’s ahead of you. You lose focus of your goals. The moment you start to look at what other people are doing, you slow down and stop running as your focus is now on them instead of running.

Focus on YOU.
Build YOU.
Improve YOU.
Take care of YOU.
Run YOUR race with endurance, the unique race that GOD set before you.

  1. We do need to set our goal high Colleen and aim for it and not let anything get in the way, especially negativity, ours or others, we can always find weaknesses in ourselves, we all have them but we do not focus on these and so give up and we remember what God tells us to do.

    Philippians 2:1-6 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of Love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfill ye my Joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same Love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

    Christian Love Always – Anne.
