Run In The Rain!



Matthew 5:45
45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Recently there was a major marathon in Houston. Novice to professional runners trained for weeks and months to prepare for this race. The day of the race, the weather was uncomfortably cold and the clouds unleashed a torrential rain.

Any good athlete understands that in preparation for competition, you have to prepare for the unexpected. Anything can happen in battle!

Just the same, our lives are a constant battle. As we race toward the finish line, which is eternal life in Heaven, we must act and not react.

1 Corinthians 9:24 "Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it."

Anything can happen everyday. The winners are those who know how to adjust and keep moving.

My challenge to you this week is to learn how to RUN IN THE RAIN! Despite what comes your way – keep Running! Prepare for the rain.

Rain may seem negative to some and beneficial to others. It can slow you you down or remind you that GOD is providing the nourishment you need to grow taller and go farther

EVEN IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH HELL, KEEP RUNNING – EVENTUALLY YOU WILL COME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE!
