Run Your Race • part one

Hi lovely ladies,

i feel like I haven’t wrote on here for ages! I preached in church on Sunday, which on its own has consumed a lot of my thinking space.  I’ve also taken on the role of Events Coordinator for a local community event! Teamed together along with motherhood, wife duties, training for my half marathon I’ve felt at times quite consumed in a ball of chaos! Anyway…….

God really placed this word on my heart and although I’ll post the link for you to watch if you want to! I thought I’d write it for you too in a mini series!

When you run a race you stay in lane, you stay on your track in your lane. If you look at another person in another lane it slows you down if you cross over into another persons lane you trip and fall because there is already someone in there. You have to stay in your lane and stay focused in front on the finish line.

God showed me the story of King Saul and David:
1 Samuel 18:5
Whatever mission Saul sent him on, David was so successful that Saul gave him a high rank in the army. This pleased all the troops, and Saul’s officers as well.
When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with timbrels and lyres. As they danced, they sang:And from that time on Saul kept a close eye on David. You’ve made the connection right? Saul lost sight of his real focus, he lost sight of God and became more interested in someone elses race.

From that day on he kept a close eye on David….he changed lanes, Saul shifted his focus, when the women sang of Davids success Saul immediately thought that Saul was better than him, he lost his focus and bega
“Saul has slain his thousands,
and David his tens of thousands.”
Saul was very angry; this refrain displeased him greatly. “They have credited David with tens of thousands,” he thought, “but me with only thousands. What more can he get but the kingdom?” And from that time on Saul kept a close eye on David.

And from that time on Saul kept a close eye on David. You’ve made the connection right? Saul lost sight of his real focus, he lost sight of God and became more interested in someone elses race.

From that day on he kept a close eye on David….he changed lanes, Saul shifted his focus, when the women sang of Davids success Saul immediately thought that David was better than him, he lost his focus and began to COMPARE himself with David….

To be continued…..

Biggest Love
