Even writing asks for a break every now and then. So off we went, to Parker Arizona, for the 1st off-road race of this season. The guys had to replace the transmission during the race, definitely not an easy job! I watched their efforts curiously and learned a valuable lesson: endurance is everything. A few hours down time is a bummer, even in a 450 mile race, yet, no one gave up, no one gave in. They kept working, determined to get the car back on the course again. Winning was no longer possible, but finishing a must! And I am glad to announce we did, we collected our first points for 2008. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:11, strive for endurance. It is not something that comes automatically, we have to go after it. We live in a time where endurance has become a valuable virtue, people give up so easily; not everyone though!
We too have to run our best in the race of faith!
