Chasing after you,I run to catch up with you,
Gasping for breath,panting for air.
See I am a runner, and running is what I love to do best,
I am kept busy by the chase, always too afraid to end the race.
We'll at one point it comes to an end.
The running after dreams, after ambitions after those thing that seem worth running for.
Every great athlete has to know for very important things and this are crucial.........
1. What price they are running for
The price is the focus of what they want to achieve ,when running for Gold you will give all that you have because loosing is not an option. Gold pursues are always filled with convincing once self,pushing past the limit and believing in one's self. All you can see is the finish line and all the strength is directed towards getting there,nothing not even pain or fatigue are allowed to get in the way. Silver pursuits have a chance of letting someone be the best. Silver pursues may get you close to the finish line but never to victory of Gold,you are allowed to let go a bit. There is the option of if I don't win I will still get something,second-best perhaps.bronze winners let go even more and are willing to compromise both the Silver and the Gold but still get recognition. No medal runners just want to stand up and be counted for participation
2.when to start
Depending on what you are running for then the start will have to dictate the race. The start is carefully planned and all calculations in the mind.
3.how to keep the pace
This dictates the entire race. The start may be good but at some point the pace is lost. This would affect the kind of things we will attain at the end of the race.
4.when to stop.
Of course one must learn when to stop. Two kinds of stopping at the end of the race and when to call it quits.
So where am I getting at :
Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,let us throw off everything that hinders us and the sin that so easily besets us, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us ........... I don't know what you've been running for, but for sometime I have been running for the silver and the bronze , you know the things that seem so important abut are not really, the human make of the standards...yes. Run for those things that are important such as Eternal life,people who love you,family and those things that you can not trade in for, those that will hang as mementos of sacrifice and endurance and giving your all. Do not get weary or tired. Where you lost the strength to complete the race just remember that God is there constantly to help you. Forget your loses and embrace the victories of today and those to come,do not be worried to much about tomorrow until it holds up your today because you will always live in the tomorrow and all the beauties of today will pass you like a wind. Instead live today and prepare for tomorrow, leave the nitty grittys to God because the truth is even if you were given a thousand tomorrow's you would still not be ready at no.1001. There will still be that thing to achieve, that goal to accomplish,that responsibility to fulfill. So know when to start. Start running today and take a moment as you run to enjoy the Glory of the race ,because Jesus has the map. He will make sure that you are on track and smile when you receive all that was placed in the race for you. Love hard,keep humble and always smile .
