MARATHON... a long-distance running race, a long-lasting or difficult task or operation of a specified kind. These last few months have felt like a marathon. When I first heard this term in association with fulfilling your purpose by one of my favs Lisa Nichols, I didn’t quite get it, but now it’s clear. Like a marathon, this path isn’t short or quick, it’s long lasting, it requires training and preparation (even some of your past experiences have been preparing for this race), the most important thing to remember is during the marathon you must take care of yourself, physically, mentally and spiritually to handle the exhaustion, conserve your energy and control the ‘mind games’ when you think about giving up! DON’T GIVE UP!!! “The race is not won to the swift but to the one who endureth till the end.” Ecclesiastes 9:11.
