Last month, I posted this on Instagram:
Have you ever tried to run a marathon? It is a challenge, even for experienced runners. It can start easy, but more than half-way through, your body wants to stop and quit. It is tired. But right when you want to stop, you hear someone yell to keep going! At that moment, the finish line comes fresh in your mind again, and you remember why you are running this race.
Life is like a marathon. Its tough, there are bumpy roads and pot holes, and challenges always arise. Yet, God doesn’t change our environment, He changes us. He stands with us when we want to quit. He cheers our name from the crowd and tells us He believes in us. With each step, we develop something called “perseverance“, which literally means: Persistent Determination.
Princesses, be encouraged that as you run this race called “life”, your Papa God is running with you. He is doing new things in you as you go through your season. When you want to quit, just remember, you can do all things through Him and with Him. You will finish this race and you will finish well.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
