THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 29)

I crossed the line! I finished a half-mara today! However, the day got off to a potentially bad start. Read all about it. The night before, I attended a friend’s book launch in Chatham, which meant returning home a little late and having less time to sleep. Ideally, I would have wanted to rest all […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 28)

I had barely turned the left corner at the end of my street when I heard the Lord say, “You are not working hard enough.” I kept on running as the word registered in my spirit. Somehow, I knew what He meant. As a co-worker with God, not only do I need to be about […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 26)

The other day, I got me one of these smart, techy wristbands. The cute little thing could tell the time, track my steps, display how much distance I have covered in a day and measure my heart pulse. It can even tell me how much calories I burn each day and monitor my sleep each […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 25)

A few weeks ago, I got me some new running shoes! It was time I replaced my old, worn-out shoes with new ones. Although I had gotten used to my old shoes and have had the pleasure of running in them for a year, a change was needful. Running experts recommend changing your running shoes […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 24)

Why do people find it difficult to sustain their commitment to New Year Resolutions (NYRs)? Are NYRs even worth it seeing only a tiny percentage of those who religiously make them keep them? With a backdrop of mixed feelings about the concluding year, many make promises to themselves to do better in the new year […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 23)

I went for a run on Christmas day. Yes, with a Christmas hat on to keep my head warm! It was quite early in the morning, well before the church’s Christmas service, where I would be playing four Christmas carols on the keyboard. Oh, and well before the family woke up to finish off the […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 22)

One of the well-known chapters in the Bible is Hebrews 11, the roll call of faith heroes. It describes, one after the other, the achievements of people who were called by God and through whom God accomplished His purpose in the earth. These people now form the “great cloud of witnesses” that urge us to […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 21)

A funny incident came to mind, from many years ago. It was one of these very cold, winter mornings. I had been out for a while and even with gloves on, my fingers were frozen and numb. Although there was nothing funny about the cold, the way I tried to take my gloves off my […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 20)

Last week, I wrote briefly about crossroads – junctions in our journey that split our course into two (or more) diverging pathways. Each of these lead to different destinations, so we need to be clear about where we are heading before racing ahead. Crossroads are inevitable on the race tracks of life. So also is […]
