Life is a marathon, not a sprint

By Jarad C


God brought his people out of Egypt and into the promise land, but that was a process. It wasn’t quick. It took time. It took time because of their own decisions, but ultimately God didn’t want it to be a quick process. But as Matthew 24:13 says “He that endured to the end, the same shall be saved.”


We’ve all heard the term “God did a quick work.” This can happen in relationships, jobs, ministries, and also recovery processes. We all want God to do a quick work, and sometimes he does! We give him glory for that!


BUT there is something beautiful about a slow process. The best foods are not microwavable but cooked overnight. The greatest relationships are those that have stood the test of times.


The best testimonies are those of a slow and steady process.

In recovery, slow progress is still progress. Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t where you want to be. A quote I like to use is “I’m not where I want to be but I’m better than I used to be.” Recovery you is better than the not recovery you. Take the steps. Come on the journey. Never. Give. Up.


Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.


Take what you like and leave the rest. My name Is Jarad I'm a grateful believer in Jesus Christ striving for moral and sexual purity.
