1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

Here goes …

“… the RACE is not to the swift, …” but to the one that endures to the end. “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” ~ (1 Corinthians 9:23-25)
We must run the race of life with the end in mind. We must run the race as a champion, with the mindset that we are well able to win and that we are already victorious. The race we run each day is scattered with obstacles, hurdles, twists and turns along the track. Therefore, it is vital to our victory to be disciplined, prepared, and equipped for the race that we may indeed obtain the prize. The mind of a champion is what we need. No matter what we face along the way, our focus remains on the prize. We learn to adapt along the way. We are not deterred by the currents of adversity or the hecklers along the sidelines. The goal is what drives us, pushes us like a wind in our back. We run always aware of other runners in the race, but never losing sight of the goal, never losing sight of our rank in the race … we’re the champion.
God has equipped us, coached us, and cheered us on to win the race so we must run the race with the assurance that we have been trained by the best and that we represent the best.
Get on your mark, get set, ready, go!
Whatever your race … life in general, an unrealized dream, a marriage, an education or career, or in your spiritual walk … run the race that you may obtain the prize.
You’re the champion, you win!
