"Our Daddy may have only had a third grade education, but he could read the King James Bible, " says Helen Ashe. He taught us three things: 1. There is but one race-- the human race. 2. There is but one Father--the Heavenly Father. 3. Never take the last piece of bread from the table. (Helen Ashe co-founder of the Love Kitchen)"

How will we race?
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Try as hard as you can. Never quit..Enjoy the ride. Keep your eyes turned upward...
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13~
Rejoice in the victory you have...The victory that has been promised you.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2Corinthians 2:14
And bask in the love...
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
Our lives are a race. A marathon to run for the glory of God. Each day we are running to claim the upward prize of His calling. How will we run? With Love? With Joy? With agony? With a complaining heart? Or with a purpose knowing that we are called? We are called and empowered by the maker of the Universe, the Creator of all, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Never forget that you are never alone in the race. Your Savior Jesus Christ is with you every step of the way. He is encouraging you with His Word. He is enabling you with His Church. He is guiding you with the Holy Spirit. He will never leave you or forsake you and He is with you to the uttermost.
