I mentioned last week that I had several half thoughts that I just could not make time to get down into some coherent complete thought. Here’s one of those!!
Yesterday I was glancing through my phone for a picture and rediscovered this great thought:
Run the mile you are in! That is great running advice and it is great advice for life! I suppose it’s the runners version of the old adage bloom where you are planted. It both encourages us to be present and to pay attention to the part of the race we are in!
Last night I came across two different verses that seemed to emphasize this same concept. First is from the Christ as he encourages his audience;
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:34 KJV)
The second is from the letter to the Ephesians:
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:15-16 NIV)
My friend Sam told me this winter he loved that I frequently said ‘it is what it is’ when discussing situations and life stuff that was beyond our control. I think it to be a wise outlook. Besides what can you do about it , but to be wise, make the most of it and run the mile you are in.
