MUSINGS FROM PASTOR BRAD
“Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
When I was in Middle School, I was in track, because everyone was in track. And our coach made every person do a running event. So, because I was not fast in any way beyond ten feet, I had to run the mile. I hated every second of it. Plus, I was not very good at it, often coming in last or close to last. Frankly, I am surprised I finished every race. But I knew why I finished: my friend Aaron.
Aaron was a runner and loved to run long distances, and he also ran the mile. The different between him and me is he would finish while I would still be on my second lap of four. I would be wheezing, struggling to breath, just wanting it to end, but then Aaron would come over. He would run next to me, even though he had already run the mile, and encourage me to finish. He would keep me going, even in the midst of my torture, so I would finish. I have no doubt I wouldn’t have made it without his encouragement.
In life, we so often find ourselves running the race of life and it feels like we have no breath, that we are wheezing, that it is torture, that we want to quit. But our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ runs with us. After all, it is God who has given us breath. Without that breath, we are just flesh and bone. But we are alive and in life, our Savior doesn’t leave us to run it alone. Christ runs with us, helps us when we want to give up, guides us in all that we do. You are never alone.
May you know every day that the Lord is with you, renewing you, strengthening you, running besides you in this grace race we call life. Never give up, because your are loved and saved by your Savior Jesus Christ. May God bless you every day and always!
