THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 45)

I hinted the other day that I adopted a run-walk strategy to my marathon race. I had to make this switch about six weeks to race day and settle my mind on the idea. Upon research, I found that the run-walk approach was popular amongst runners. Contrary to impressions one may have, it is not […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 42)

Whenever we step out to run the race of purpose set before us, God steps out with us and enables us to cross the finish line. This is my testimony (one of my testimonies) from last week’s marathon. I had taken two days off from work in order to rest. However, on the Thursday before […]

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, […]

Yet, there is always a higher place to which we […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 7)

You did it! Well done! Kudos! Awesome! Now that you’ve been there, done that, got the T-shirt and the shiny medal, what next? Are you going to relax, relapse or refocus? These questions are relevant, especially after every victory. When you expend energy and put in a lot of effort to reach a milestone, you […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 6)

Ebenezer! On the journey of life, there are milestones you need to acknowledge and celebrate. You may not yet be where you want to be, but you are no longer where you used to be. You do not need to beat yourself up for having not achieved you BIG goal. Instead, pat yourself on the […]
