Born to Run

This week as I searched for supplements to aid the discussion of Crazy Love I opened up one of my favorite books: When Life and Beliefs Collide by Carolyn Custis James.

"Every woman struggles with aspects of God's plan for her.  There are points along the way where everything inside us rebels against what is happening".....

"Sooner or later all of us will ask the question, If this is God's plan for me, how do I move forware?  How do I run the race he has marked out when I am disappointed with it and frustrated with him?  At least part of the answer lies in the urgent words of the ancient epistle to the Hebrews:"Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles...Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us...Let us fix our eyes on Jesus"(Heb. 12:1-2)
