Need encouragement to continue the race? It can get exhausting, tiring, make you want to quit, or stop all together. I’m here to encourage you along the way. DO NOT QUIT!!! You can do this!
Building anything of worth, is not an over night success. For this thing to last, you must keep going. You cannot stop.
Discipline in a Long-Distance Race
I like to define discpline has consistent energy toward a habit, whether good or bad, you’re putting all your energy toward a particular behavior consistently. This year, lets have discpline, consistent discipline, that can help you endure in the long run, during a race.
Hebrews 12:2-3 (MSG)
“…..It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”
James 1:2-4 (MSG)
“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.”
No matter that it is, hang on, don’t quit and KEEP MOVING.
