Life is a Marathon, not a Sprint


This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us be full of joy and be glad in it. - Ps 118:24

There are days when these are the first words I need to hear. These are usually the days when I find it really challenging to get up out of bed in the morning. I don't know when or why these days will hit but for some reason, today just happens to be one of them.

It's days like this that I need to remember to be gentle to myself. I need to remember that life is a marathon, not a sprint. I have to remind myself to be kind to myself. 

I get so caught up in everything I've got going on. While there is a lot, it's not something I can't manage. God has given me these responsibilities for this season of life. He won't give me more than I can handle.

You have never been tempted to sin in any different way than other people. 
God is faithful. He will not allow you to be tempted more than you can take. 
But when you are tempted, He will make a way for you to keep from falling into sin. - 1 Cor 10:13

Although this verse is talking about sin, I believe it can be applied to other areas of life. I believe God wants us to slow down and enjoy life. This doesn't mean that we aren't called to do things but that if we trust in and rely on Him

For My way of carrying a load is easy and My load is not heavy. - Matthew 11:30

Trust me when I say, God is speaking to me this morning. I hope this message resignates with you as well.

Until next time, Stay strong,
