Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24
Have you ever just gotten tired of running the race He has set before you? Sometimes I just want to get out of the pack and sit my hind-end down on the sidelines for a while. I'm tired of fighting Satan in my mind, sick of worrying about my children, irritated at how our country can't seem to get it together- I'd really just like to push the pause button, wouldn't you?
