Walk, Don't Run
So if you can learn anything from Solomon and my failed running plan remember the three principles I should have embraced at the beginning.
1. Be aware of your limits
At the end of the day do you feel ‘good’ tired where you stopped at the right time or exhausted like you got the life sucked from you?
2. Start small
Are you biting off more than you can chew? Are your ambitions God-honoring or are you working from the flesh?
3. Start early
Are you giving yourself the proper preparation before jumping into something too big? Are you growing slowly with God or becoming something God didn’t intend for you yet?
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
