24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:23-25
It's been awhile that I actually opened up this blog with a scripture, but I can tell you that this has been breeding fire within me since sometime within the midnight hours. In fact, it was birthed within me in my dreams last night. I woke up thinking "wha??". I was running! A real race! And... I was in the contenders spot. It was like each lap around, someone would be eliminated. I began that race thinking there is no way, but I had to run it. I didn't have a choice. I can't remember why, I just remember I didn't have a choice. When that portion of my dream seemed to come to an end, I was one of three left running. The next thing I remember I was sitting down at my computer and writing. Before I knew it I had written 363 pages so i hit submit and before I knew it, I had a hard copy of the book in my hand!! People were coming behind me saying "wow!" I have been there, and even that sounds like a good thing. Then even though I wasn't in my parents house, I remember running into my parents room to tell them ~but they didn't believe me. I told them specifically that "I can do this, and I don't have to wait for anyone to do it for me!".
Have you ever had really vivid dreams, and you know when you woke up that it was not only a dream, but an Encounter? I am overwhelmed this morning. I am blessed, and yet feel so loved by the KING! My hope for you, is that this word that I have shared this morning will remind you that you haven't crossed that finish line! I will walk away taking from it that it is time to get to writing ~that I will have an anointing that will amaze even those the closest to me!
I am posting this on both blogs this morning ~ because well, I want others to read of His provision, His hope, and to be reminded that we are to be running (not always physically) but most importantly running to Him.
