Be Ready for the Race - May 2, 2023

God wants to use you my friend, but how can he if you’re exhausted?

Getting ready for my run, the sun was out, but the wind was chilly.  Jacket or sweatshirt? The Boy Scout within me prevailed, and I wore both. Got my cell phone, my water bottle. So no one would steal my car, I pocketed my keys. I looked more like a pack mule than a runner. Within half a mile, I was pealing off the jacket. That kind of weight will slow you down.

What’s true in jogging is true in faith. God has a great race for you to run. But you have to drop some stuff. How can you lift someone else’s load if your arms are full with your own? For the sake of those you love, travel light. For the sake of the God you serve, travel light. For the sake of your own joy, travel light.
