Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. I am in a foreign country, distance running, pushing myself, hoping to better my time.
I am a stranger among people whose tongue I do not know, finding my way in a land I don't know.
As I press on, pushing hard, I think of the Apostle Paul traveling the Mediterranean,
spreading his good news to people whose tongue he doesn't know, finding a way to communicate.
I'm tired, my legs ache, but I run on. I think of my breathing, my pace, my goal, my focus, my desire.
I fight the urge to back off, stick with my resolve to improve, and go on, always onward,
keeping in mind my purpose, the course I will finish: to be kind, to be kind.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
