THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 47)

Inspire a generation

I got a Father’s Day card yesterday and a box of gifts (all these on top of a delicious German toast, hot coffee and ‘jolly good fellow’ chorus). In the card, my children and dear wife had written some nice words, all very touching. My daughter, Destiny, in her note, had made reference to the […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 44)

There are, at least, three virtues we need for our life’s race. Vision, purpose and patience. Vision will give us the impetus to get started. Purpose will see us through to the end. Patience will take care of everything in-between. Simplistic, yes, but true. There is a measure of excitement that marks the beginning of […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 41)

All things are possible to those who believe enough to dare and persevere. This is the story of today’s marathon. As you can see, I showed up, didn’t give and crossed the finish line! Thank you Jesus! It’s not a day for writing much because I ache all over! But I heard in my spirit, […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 39)

It is finished. When Jesus spoke these words on the cross, He was not letting out a sigh of relief because HIS pain had come to an end. He was still in unbearable agony as He laid down His life for the sin of the whole world. What HAD certainly finished was OUR eternal damnation […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 37)

This is a true story. I left the house early yesterday intending to run all the way to Norman Park and then participate in the morning’s Parkrun. The distance from home to the park is roughly 10km. After running nearly 4k, I began to feel heaviness in my left shin. Not again! That was the […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 32)

Some Performance coaches teach that to attain a big goal, you need to divide your main objective into chunks. In this way, you will not remain intimidated by the enormity of your dream. You will, instead, take on one challenge at a time, and before you know it, you will arrive at your glorious destination. […]

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 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 19)

The course that heaven sets before us involves not only twists and turns, but also roundabouts and crossroads. We, therefore, have to run with patience or risk spinning off course. Speed is counterproductive when you miss your way. At the crossroads of life, you need to be sure of the way. You need divine direction, […]
