Maybe it’s just me…
But I seem to struggle with the same things every single day.
I have the best of intentions. I tell myself not to worry about this…or don’t react to that
Every morning when I get out of bed…I reach down and pick up my “past”, my “guilt”, my bad “habits”, my “whatever” that keeps me from running a good race that day for the Lord. It could be anything that does it. God asks us to lay it aside and yet we continue to pick it up every single day. I have learned a long time ago to not look past today when it comes to honoring the Lord with your life. I think that is what Paul meant when he said, “I die daily” in 1 Corinthians 15:31. It’s about “today”…yesterday doesn’t matter…”tomorrow” isn’t even considered…it’s all about today.
Sounds easy…but like brushing our teeth and getting dressed each morning…I pick up the weight, that “baggage” every morning.
My goal today…is to lighten the load.
Have a good day people, I hope you run well.
But then again, maybe it’s just me.
