“…let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”  –Hebrews 12:1

     When I say that I run for God, I am not saying that I can run record-breaking distances. I am saying that I can’t even walk without Him. I am not saying that I don’t get weary, just that I need the gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit upon my back until the end. I am not saying that I never let the weakness in my body win, but that I need His strength to carry me through each step. When I say that I run for God, I am not saying that the last mile isn’t treacherous, I am saying that because he climbed Golgotha’s hill for me, I can keep going for Him.

When I say that I run for God I am not saying that it is easy and pain free, I am saying that as long as I have able legs I will run the race God has set before me. I am saying that as long as my arms can swing in stride I will use them to reach out to others, although I often fail. I am not saying that I don’t ever get winded, but while I have lungs able to breathe I will use that breath to share the gospel. I am saying that as long as God allows me to run, I will try to make every step a testimony to His greatness. When I say that I run for God I am not boasting of any ability within myself, I am simply saying that apart from Christ I can do nothing!
