The Race

 
THE RACE
 
We are all racing toward the finish line of life. Some race with blind folds. They think they can see, but in reality they are way off course. They need someone to guide them back to the race track and release them from their blindfold. Others however have no blindfold, yet they are distracted along the way. Drawn off course, seeing clearly but unable to stay committed to the race because of all the distractions. Then there are those that have their eye on the prize, eyes wide open, undistracted by the others, striding forward at a rapid pace. They know their almost to the finish line, they've almost completed the race. For those that are at this point, the last leg of the race will be the toughest, you will get thirsty, your vision may get blurry, you may have hunger pains and muscle aches, but keep your eye on the prize, don't stop for a rest and fall asleep at this point, you will win and victory will be yours to gain. As for the others, now is the time to get back in the race! There's little time to do so, for in a little bit the race will soon be over. How will you finish your race?

    A great word Stephanie. Too many people including those in the church have become distracted by cares of this world and have left their first love. The Bridge groom will soon be coming for His Bride, and He is warning time is short. Lets get our eyes fixed on Jesus. Thanks Stephanie :)

    Distraction will side track a lot of people for sure. The world we live in is full of material satisfaction but only for a season. It is a long race for most of us but the reward will be SO worth it (Eternity). Enjoy your music. God bless you and your family.
