INSPIRATION AND GUIDANCE

I am not your regular preacher.
But these passages/verses from the Bible keeps on echoing in my mind.
I guess, they have a purpose of being here. I was just inspired. Reading thru the purpose of my runnings…I paused and re.think.
Maybe. Just maybe.

I wanted to be an Ultra Marathoner.
I wanted to run faster on my Full Marathons.
I wanted to continue running for longer years and injury free.
I wanted to be an accomplished Marathoner.

God help me.

Hebrews 12:1
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

While the above-quoted passages speak not literally of running, the parable and the true meaning may still somehow relate to it.

I am inspired.
