At the beginning of 2007, I made the decision to spend time with God everyday, first thing in the morning. I spend about an hour praying and reading the Bible. This has been real good for me.
I’ve been reading the book of Hebrews lately. In chapter 12, the author writes about running the race with perseverance. It says that we should fix our eyes on Jesus as we are running. I picture this marathon and Jesus at the finish line waiting to greet me. That’s what I should be racing towards, but I realized that’s not what I have been doing lately. Instead, I’ve been running towards the things that are important to me.
God’s been telling me that I need to start running to him again.
