Wanna race? I can remember as a kid when I would get new shoes, the first thing I wanted to do was race. I felt faster just from the shear presence of the new leather on my feet.
Ever notice what we do when challenged to a race? Our next statement is, "hold on…let me put my stuff down." Why? Because we don’t want it to slow us down.
In recovery it is the same way. Our race is always much lighter and easier if you we don’t carry our past with us. The Father has a race marked out for each of us, but scripture tells us we must “throw off any and all things that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles us “so that” we can run with perseverance this race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
Is something from your past keeping you from enjoying the race in the present? Is there something keeping you from being able to run more efficiently in your life?
Let’s throw it off starting right now! This race will never be easy, but it can sure be easier when we deal with the past that is bogging us down.
God has a new pair of shoes for you to wear in your race. Wearing His grace and mercy always gives us hope and a renewed sense of belief and courage to run the race better than the enemy who tries to bog us down.
Come see us tonight at Celebrate Recovery 6:00pm. Race you there!
