It’s a Slog

I am not s runner. But I have done 5K’s (walking) enough to appreciate it. At first, you feel great, plenty of energy. Halfway through you start questioning your life choices. By the end you just want it to be done, and fight your own mind trying to convince yourself you don’t have anything to prove.

Well, that’s not too different from our run with Christ. Sure you get some bumps along the way, but then your Faith gets truly tested. God does some pruning in your life, and start to question whether God is really on your side or not. Before it’s over, you have to work to overcome your doubt if God is really there.

That’s why it’s so important to divest yourself of anything that hinders, including pet sins, that easily slow you down and divert you from He path. In the end, you will find the reward worth all the trouble of the journey.

Ask God today to help you see the entanglements that easily trip you up. God bless you today!
