I’m elated to let my blog subscribers know that I recently secured a book deal! If you’re on Facebook, you might have already seen my announcement last week.
This has been in the works for some time now and I’m excited to enter the publishing phase of this journey.
The book is a 40-day devotional about the parallels between running and our Christian walk of faith. Now I know that many of you wouldn’t classify yourselves as runners, but please don’t dismiss this book as something not applicable to you.
Whether you ever run a step in your life or not, you are in a race! Not a physical race. But a spiritual race that takes a lifetime to complete. In the New Testament the apostle Paul writes in many places about how our life is a race. My favorite one is this:
Hebrews 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
He painted a vivid picture of what our walk with Jesus should be like. Everyone in that time was familiar with the terminology because of the popular and competitive foot races people flocked to.
Many of my posts in this last year have been about running. Thanks for your support and encouraging words along the way, especially if you’re not a runner! Thanks for taking the time to subscribe to my blog and allowing me to enter your world through email!
I’d appreciate your prayers in the days ahead for God to use this book to reach those who need encouragement, hope and inspiration as they embrace their race in this life. I’ll keep you posted on the details and let you know when the book will be launched.
Until then, I’ll keep posting encouragement to inspire you when life gets weary. May you keep running your race of faith one step at a time!
