Your Race

It’s your race.

I know that we live with people.  I also know that we can’t run our races on our own.  I get that life takes a village.  I totally agree that friends are often the wind beneath our wings.

But at the end of the day, it’s your race.

I am not going to run your race, you have to be the one doing that.  And please, don’t run mine.  It is my joy and responsibility, my calling in life, my great commission.

And when all is said and done, at the end of your days, you will have to give account for your race.  Not mine; just yours.



  1. This is great encouragement! So many times we get so focused on those around us that we miss what is happening in our own lives. It’s the splinter in your eye, log in my eye thing. But God calls each of us to pick up OUR cross, lay down OUR life and follow Him. I will run my race!


  2. Interesting comments… and too a degree I’d agree. Keep in mind your ‘race’ may involve an investment of self in other people’s lives. You may be the friend, life coach or other to help, guide and keep them on track with their lives.


I would love to hear your reaction to this post.
