Over the weekend my family and I watched the secretariat… it was a very good movie filled with great inspiration… it is based on a horse CHOSEN by his owners who fulfilled high aspirations…  this horse, not liked by all but loved by his owners, achieved the highest in his circle… many would say he beat all odds from sickness to lack of experience… he attained the GREATEST prize not achieved by many… when he crossed the final finish line there was a GREAT reward awaiting him and an embrace by the ones who believed in him the most…

As simple as the concept, my heart couldn’t help but reflect upon this… we have all been created for the race of life that God intends for us to complete in Him… it is a race that only we as individuals can run and only we as individuals can complete… my race isn’t your race… if I try to complete yours I will NOT attain my ultimate prize… let us run with endurance and fight the good fight… life is hard and sometimes the RACE is long but there is an ultimate prize waiting across that finish line, that only we can claim… 

“Do you not know that in a race all runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it!” (1 Cor. 9:24)

“…let us lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with ENDURANCE the race set before us… looking to Jesus!” (Hebrews 1:1-2)

Run it… believe it… receive it… achieve it… and ULTIMATELY attain it!… it’s yours… it’s what YOU were created for!
