Fresh Fuel for Running the Good Race.
At times we all feel as if we cant go on. Our dreams have faded or crashed. We wake up one day and realize were just plodding through life. Weve embraced life, but still we wonder what “might have been?” What happened to our hopes and plans for stronger relationships, greater career success, and lasting achievements? Why have we settled for what is instead of striving for what could be?
When these conditions or other dilemmas leave you feeling trapped, you are an ideal candidate for one of lifes great surprises-a “second wind.”
God wishes to give you such dramatic turnarounds in many areas of life. Just when you think you cant go on, you can tap into the wellspring of Gods power and allow him to give your life a “jump start.” With this newly discovered energy, you can stop your plodding and once again run the race of life with a spirit of exhilaration and joyous abandon.
