We often consider the Bible as simply a book, pages with letters and numbers. It sits on our coffee tables and beside our beds, only occasionally opened. And when we do open it, it’s to glance through a few verses while our minds wonder to life’s more pressing priorities. It might get a little of our attention once or twice a week at church, while our hearts are more loyal and attentive elsewhere. Sadly, we’ve forgotten that it’s so much more than a book. It’s a Person whose name is Jesus.

Do you feel like your life is a grueling marathon? A sprint that’s draining you of energy and spirit? Or maybe a soft run but with lots of distractions?
“Life holds many races. Our ultimate race is to make it to heaven, but there are other races to run. It could be a race to receive healing in our bodies, recovery for our marriages, or provision for our homes. It could be as simple as obeying God every time He gives us an instruction. Each challenge or goal must be run with faith in God.”
If you need inspiration and guidance to run your life’s race, take a moment to read my latest blog article, “Running to Win.” God wants you to make it to the finish line!
Have you reached a season in your life and it makes you feel uncomfortable? You don’t know where God’s taking you, and you’d rather stay in your comfort zone?
“When God brings us into a new season (job change, marriage, parenthood, spiritual growth, etc.), He asks us to forget about the things in our past. Why? Because if we’re clinging to our past, our focus is going to be there. And wherever our focus is, that’s where we’re going to stay. We won’t reach the new destination God has for us. We may not even realize what God is doing, much less receive the blessings that comes with it.”

As a result, we have had many opportunities to feel sad, discouraged, and depressed. Like a wet and ratty bathrobe, those feelings and emotions may cling to us, reminding us daily of our problems.
God, however, doesn’t want us weighed down with our pain and disappointments. It robs us of our joy and peace and hinders us from fulfilling His call on our lives. He wants us free.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
Micheal, Christa, and Amaris Madrid
The Madrid family would like to wish you a Merry Christmas! May we not forget the One who gave His life so we would have reason to celebrate.
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6-7)
