Ready, Set, Go!

By Jim Allen, Editor, NuVote Reach


Sometimes people (even those who may like or love you) may hold you hostage to being the person that you were when they met you. You may just have to come to grips with that.

Today, someone who is feeling a little misunderstood might consider focusing on getting your steps properly ordered to RUN into your destiny, no matter what others might think of you or your plans.

If you are blessed to catch a vision, only look back to pull someone else forward who is ready and willing to run with you; pray for the rest, and keep it moving!

If you BELIEVE you are not quite positioned to run right now, consider starting now to renew your mind for the race.

Everyday, thinking of it as run and won.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2).

And, when your race is run, you can catch your breath:

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7)
