Recently I ran a 50-mile run, for fun. My dear friend asked me how I motivated to do that, It was simple, my others friends were doing it and I said I would. My motivation for that event was I said I would so I wanted my yes to be yes.
Along the way, training for this event I felt the inevitable, “you can’t do this” come up. One way I stayed motivated was to listen to the Prayz network, as I was on my long training runs. I was convinced if I could listen to Prayz while doing my 50 miler and have it on a Speaker, I could witness for Jesus, be witnessed to and run. I thought it was a perfect plan. Unfortunately, there was no cell phone service where my 50 miler took place. So during the race I held onto scripture, song lyrics and decided even if I couldn’t run I could walk. While racing, I met someone who was cramping up. I prayed for him and his cramps went away. He said, “I forgot, that I could pray”. Isn’t that funny? I forget that too. Sometimes I go out on my own and forget that God is with me. When I remember I can call on Him at anytime for any thing, THAT IS MY TRUE MOTIVATION.
Whatever race you are running today, be motivated to finish what you started. Let your Yes be Yes and you No be No. Be strong and Courageous, Our Lord Jesus Christ lives in YOU!!!
Be fit and be blessed,
All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
