"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.

ROCC Run for God : Let’s Get It Started!

This week kicked off the Run For God 5K Challenge at River Oaks Community Church in Clemmons, NC.  Over 100 of my newest running buddies joined for the introduction and prepared to begin this journey.  Like life’s journey, there are sure to be ups and downs over this next 13 weeks, but as with life in Christ Jesus, we know we can endure, persevere and encourage one another to complete this race for our prize; the finish line of the ROCC The Potter’s House 5k on May 12th. 

For those that are yet to join, or were unable to attend last night, I have provided the slides that we covered.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Have a great week and continue to run with horses!
