Encouragement

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:32 pm by Andrew

Ever find yourself running the ‘Race of Life’ and feeling overwhelmed or all alone? I think if we are all honest with ourselves, we will find that we have all been there.
If you think back on the last time you felt that way, what was it that pulled you through? More than likely, it was someone else that came along side you to offer encouragement, to let you know that you are not in this by yourself, and that together we will finish this race.
If you are feeling overwhelmed presently, know that we are rooting for you, that we all have times where we just can’t seem to see the finish line, or worse, we feel it would be easier to just quit than to keep on track. Someone once said, ” Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize….” Keep pressing on, for it does not matter whether you cross the line first or last, but that you cross it.
For those who know others that are feeling this way, come along side them and run with them, offering them encouragement that is real. It is one thing to yell encouraging words as they run by, but an entirely different thing to run with them, encouraging them along the entire race.

God Bless,

Andrew

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead....
