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 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 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 43)

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 40)

The date was set a long while back. Now it is just round the corner. You doubt your preparation. You are at the brink of hitting the quit button. You want to run away from the challenge ahead. Before you do a “No Show”, let me encourage you with a story I recently heard. A […]

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 […]
