Run in such a way as to win the prize....

God is trying to tell me something, but I'm not sure what it is....That scripture keeps on coming up in various ways so I'm thinking that the Lord is trying to tell me to run in such a way as to win the prize. But really, what does that mean?? First lemme tell you about the different ways it has come and you tell me if it's just coincidences....

  1. I was jamming to my Aaron Shust CD and "Like I never felt before" came on and when I sung "run in such a way as to win the prize" I felt like I was singing those words for the first time. I felt like I was supposed to pay attn to that part of the song.....
  2. I went to convocation and the sermon was on 1 Cor 9:25-27 which contains "run in such a way as to win"
  3. It is the motto of my school this year
  4. I was doing a devotional during my quiet time and that was the verse that was used for reflection

So do you agree with me? lol

I wish I knew exactly how I'm supposed to interpret it but It's all kinda hazy. I'm not exactly one of those intellectual types. All I can do is pray that the Lord will give me insight on how I should apply this to my life.

If you randomly come across this blog I would greatly appreciate it if you joined me in prayer!! =)

Mayra, whazup friend? I hope you evacuated. if not, you have about 12 hours. i recommend 'road trip' "run in such a way as if to avoid Ike" I wouldn't run in such a way as if you don't really care if you avoid a massive hurricane, I would run as if you REALLY wanted to get away.

The weak point I'm trying to make is that I think Paul is encouraging us to 'run the race of life' (the Christian Walk...The Journey of Faith) as if we really wanted to win: Seriously. Not half heartedly. When you watch the olympics, those Sprinters give 100%. I think God wants us to give 100% in our effort to follow Him.

Be safe, Mayra
