How Do You Run?

Yesterday morning started as most Sunday’s for me….leisurely. I drank my coffee, played on the computer, and read a book. I enjoyed the preparation and consumption of what we call ‘big breakfast’ (biscuits, gravy, eggs, bacon, etc). Then, unusually, I returned to my chair and my book. It was almost time for Church before I began to get ready for Church and needless to say we arrived late.

That is the way I run, with a clear goal in mind

My frame of mind upon arrival was harried and un-centered. But I did my best to settle. Then the scripture was read – 1 Corinthians 9: 24 – 26 which ends with ‘That is the way I run, with a clear goal in mind’.

How many things do we do without a clear goal in mind? Or we allow other events to distract us from our goal. My goal yesterday to arrive at Church on time; but because my actions did not reflect that goal I failed.

Perhaps you wish to run a marathon but your training is unfocused and sporadic. Possibly you want to change careers or earn a degree but you allow the mundane and dead-end job to occupy your energies. It is time to wake up and realize you need to run toward your goal and be singular of focus.

What are you focused on this week?
