Let GO what’s slows you!
If you decided to run a race, you couldn’t do it successfully with unnecessary baggage. You wouldn’t wear many layers of clothes, if you do then that would be a disaster! People who run races strip down to the bare essentials—a pair of shorts, a t-shirt, and the lightest pair of shoes they can find. They don’t want to carry anything they don’t absolutely need.
You’re in a race, too. That’s how the Bible describes the Christian life—the journey to becoming more like Jesus.
Hebrews 12:1 says, “Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us”.
Once you decide to run, you have to get rid of anything that drags you down. You have to eliminate the sins that entangle you. You have to get rid of the expectations (your own and the expectations of others). You have to let go of your own plans and surrender to God’s purpose and to His plan.
When you do all of that, you’re telling God, “I’m ready to become the person you’ve called me to be. I’m ready for my race.”
That’s the first step to running a great race.
Run the Race. Do the good fight!
His coming is closer. Lets prepare!
The mark of the Lord !

Genesis 47:1-4 New International Version (NIV) 47 Joseph went and told Pharaoh, “My father and brothers, with their flocks and herds and everything they own, have come from the land of Canaan and are now in Goshen.” 2 He chose five of his brothers and presented them before Pharaoh.
3 Pharaoh asked the brothers, “What is your occupation?” “Your servants are shepherds,” they replied to Pharaoh, “just as our fathers were.” 4 They also said to him, “We have come to live here for a while, because the famine is severe in Canaan and your servants’ flocks have no pasture. So now, please let your servants settle in Goshen.”

There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
