Are You Running? – Six Things I Learned About Trying to Run from Purpose


  1. Running Shoes On: Check
  2. Ready to Run: Check
  3. Running Route: Unknown

There’s a problem with this checklist, and it’s not the unknown running route.  It’s not a bad thing to run if you are exercising or training for a marathon.  (There are probably some other good reasons to run as well.)  However, it’s when you think about running or actually end up trying to run from where God is calling you to be that an issue arises.
