“Life’s a Marathon Not a Sprint”

Very proud of several members of our Small Group that completed marathon’s this past weekend in Baton Rouge and Houston. What a tremendous accomplishment! One of the guys wife was sending text updates at different legs of the race on Sunday. I got a text at one point that said, “Mile 16 and 10 to go.” Having never ran a marathon before the gravity of that hit me. This guy has run 16 miles and still has to run 10 miles!!!

Life hits us like that sometimes I think. If we don’t realize the finish line is ahead, we may give up. You’re at mile 16. You’re tired. You’ve run a long way. Don’t quit, keep going, the race can be completed.

What are you considering giving up on right now? Could it be possible that you’re just at mile 16?
