1 Corinthians 9
Happy Friday :)
Dear Lord, help each of us to run our race in a way pleasing to you. Like Paul, in some cases giving up our "rights", simply because we know there is nothing else we could do outside of the race You have set in front of us, that will bring true joy and peace. Help us meet every single individual right where they are, just as Paul described, and yet still follow Your leading.
So many times I've thought of this Scripture, be it in a 5k, OCR, or a challenge. But now it is more about the life being lived. It can get tiring, we can grow weary, and we can want to ask to be excused from the race. However, You say "come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."
Thank You for Your place of rest and restoration, in Jesus Name, amen ❤
