Drum roll, please .....), the motivational battle cry for 2012 comes from Psalm 118:24, and will encourage me to make the most of everyday. Both spiritually and physically, the idea is that we not take the present day for granted. No promises of tomorrow. Say 'yes' more often and better consider the cost of regretful actions and attitudes in all relationships. Today is the day that the Lord has made, I will REJOICE and be GLAD in it!
If the written mantra is found in the above, then the audible version is taken from the attached video below. The song is most often performed by Lincoln Brewster, however, Paul Baloche co-wrote the song and sings a calmer version. Both are awesome. Enjoy!
"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.
