The usual imagery for "running the race" of life spiritually and in terms of our goals is that of a well defined track with markers and measured lanes.
This video by some young folks reminded me that it is more like the route this boy took, over, under, around, and through obstacles, crooked paths, and unmarked pathways.
Our race is whatever space is between us and where we are going. Thanks to the MysteriousDonut for this treat.
As Hebrews says, "Run the race that is set before you." It may seem like a jagged course. It may not be witnessed by the masses or cheered by throngs of onlookers, but it is yours and the finish line is home.
