Keeping on Track

It’s the middle of January. And doesn’t it always seem to happen this way?

You come into the new year with a goal in sight. Your adrenalin surges and you begin this race with a strong resolve to win. But you’ve barely gotten started when something like a pebble on the path causes you stumble.

Sort of like the head cold that knocked me down this past week.

You trip over all your good intentions and find yourself lying on the couch cradling a box of Kleenex.

But no worries.

When we feel like giving up
God reminds us to look up.


And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for My power is perfected in weakness.”
2 Cor. 12:9a
The truth is, we serve a powerful God. If He is strong enough to move mountains (and He is), He can certainly move us.  

And in the meantime, really at ALL times, there is grace. 

This wonderful, abundant, unmerited, God-given grace encouraging us with the fact that no matter how many times we get sidelined,
we can trust Him to keep us on track.

One thought on “Keeping on Track

  1. As a fellow New Year runner who got sidetracked, I really appreciate this post.

    And I really hope you get back on the track so we can both hit the ground running soon. Sorry you have been sick!
