G’day from Chicago O’hare ...
Hebrews 12:1 encourages us to "run with endurance the race that is set before us.” But if you've become so concerned with where you're headed, you may miss the race God has placed directly before you.
Look at your life, as it is right now — it may include your community, family, job, relationships, and age. This is where you are. This is your lane, the race God has set before you. Your race doesn't start later, after you get that promotion, pay off that debt, or restore that relationship. Your race has already begun!
Some never start running their race because their time and energy is spent dreaming about it, talking about it, arguing about it, planning for it and not actually doing anything to accomplish it. This race we are called to run, in which we passionately follow Jesus, is ALL about serving the purposes of God in our generation.
So start here. Start now. Don't worry about where you'll end up someday. Trust God by being faithful where you are today!
