In life we are faced again and again with the same question, asked in different forms and ways. Will we run?
I have been asked that same question countless times. I am faced with a character flaw… Will I run to the Lord or slither further into selfish pattern? I am faced with sin… Will I run to the Lord or continue to love my own flesh more? I am faced with offense toward someone… will I Run to the Lord or let anger stir like a painful boil?
Often I have not chosen the more righteous path. I have Chosen not to run. My dear brothers and sisters, what ever is righteous, whatever is noble, what ever is pure, let us choose those things. Let us run the path less chosen.
What will it take to begin this next year running? For each of us it is different. One area for me is health. After a long year, choices that we’re once being made for fitness and health have now become less habitual and quite a bit more opportunal… The morning runs, well sleep seemed nicer. The workouts became more “work” as a laza fare attitude set it. Eating well became the chore.
Let us choose to end this year well. Choose to run.
