Is life a sprint or a marathon?

race, marathon, sprint, eyes, focus, goal Life is a marathon!

…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.  Hebrews 12:1b -3 (NIV)

I know a sprint can exhaust you quickly.  A marathon is something that you have to endure but, if you are prepared, you can handle it.  If you are not prepared a marathon can be worse than a sprint.

I remember when my mother was dying for two years of multiple myeloma cancer,  she prayed for me everyday.  What a blessing to know and to see a person of faith seek God and His plan when dealing with such great adversity.

How do you prepare for the marathon of life?

Fix your eyes on Jesus and not yourself.  Whenever life is too painful just remember God came in human form and lived a life of complete sacrifice.  While he endured this sacrifice He kept His eyes focused on the right thing!

Are you trying to run too fast?  Are you willing to get ready for the Marathon of life?  No matter what you are going through, God loves you and can use you if you let Him!

Praying for you!!!
