"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 RFG 2017 - Week 3


End of the 1st Quarter!

In completing our week 3 workouts, we should all step back and be encouraged by the fact that we are 25% complete with our plan! Everyone has done a fantastic job and last night's meeting was as enthusiastic and engaging as ever. The key takeaways:

Run: Week 3 90 sec / 2 min x 6 intervals ... Trust the plan.

Connect: Chaos reigned in our Tower of Babel connecting event; watch the video (from about the 4 minute mark on) here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/roccrfg/

Grow: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 was our passage with an emphasis on our bodies being temples of the Holy Spirit so we don't defile the temple, the heart, the soul, the inner self. Not an emphasis on the outer self, appearance, abilities, fitness. Those are not the things that make our bodies a temple. They are important in that they help us serve God and others better and longer, but it is the transformation of the heart that God is most delighted in.

Learn: Gear - What we need, want, and wish for. Most importantly, proper shoes, technical shirt and socks, sun protection (hat and glasses) and a timing device. You are good to go.

If you have any questions, just let us know.
