"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.

Run For God - 2016 / Week 4

Gear Night! I always enjoy this topic -  a) it's interesting to hear what has worked or not worked for others relative to gear, apparel, gadgets, recovery tools, and such; and b) I remember as a new runner not really knowing what all was out there, much less what was a 'need' and what was really a 'want.' I think it is one of the more informative sessions of our time together. We also had some gear giveaways this year - congratulations to those who took home new performance socks, running caps, body glide, sports beans, and the reflective vest. Plus bonus of update on RFG App - sounds like a winner.

In addition, the idea of 'Stories' was our theme for the devotional time. As relational beings, our stories inspire, encourage, and convict us. They give testimony to God's faithfulness and His working in our lives. Tonight we heard from Brenda (RFG Devotions), as well as a few thoughts on why I run for God. In table time, I'm certain there were even more stories shared.

Below are the slides (you can click on them to enlarge the view) and embedded video - note how you can share you own story with RFG if you would like.

Have a great week 4, see you soon.
