What Now?

As we enter November, more and more of you will be wrapping-up what I pray was a blessed season of training, racing, and serving together.  As you transition from your race season to the post/off-season, I encourage all of you to take some time and celebrate the Lord’s blessings from this past season, as well as enjoy some rest and a period of unstructured fun activity.  I also encourage you to intentionally explore how to invest some of your extra time (created by less training) in activities that will nurture your walk with the Lord and bless others.

In Ephesians 5:15-17, Paul urges us, “Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk—not as unwise people but as wise—  making the most of the time, because the days are evil.  So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”  As we celebrate and rest, now is also a time to walk wisely and redeem the time.  May we invest our off-season in discerning and following the Lord’s will!

What does this look like for you?  Perhaps it involves spending additional time with your Heavenly Father through prayer and time in the His Word.  It likely involves spending some extra time loving and serving your family and close friends who get less of your time while you focus on training.  I encourage you all to look for ways to get more involved in your local congregations, whether serving the youth, greeting on Sunday mornings, or humbly accepting the most needed role in your church body.  Are you willing to demonstrate additional commitment to your church family through this season?  Lastly, have you considered partnering with other Christian ministries in your community, perhaps serving the homeless, loving the fatherless, or encouraging prisoners, all in Jesus’ name?  There are also likely opportunities to do this with your Huddle or other local Teammates.  Perhaps there’s something else I’ve missed that the Holy Spirit has put on your heart?  Are you ready to faithfully move forward with that, following the Lord’s will?

May we all look for opportunities to make the most of this time individually, with our families, and with our Teammates!  It may be your endurance off-season, but I’ve got a feeling the Lord has something special in mind for you during this time!

May God bless you as you answer the call of, “What now?”

For God's Glory,

Chris

What's-her-pajamas is seriously one hawt woman. Been that way since I first saw her in the first X-Men movie, but there's sniothmeg about this series that never grabbed me. I don't hate it. . . I dunno . . . just sniothmeg about this particular brand of Vampire doesn't itch my Vampire fetish. I think the first couple episodes went a little over the top with the gratuitous vamp sex and it kind of ruined the image in my opinion; like it was the big selling point of the whole series or sniothmeg.

Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked even as other folks think about issues that they plainly
do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also
outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take
a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?

I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary every day.

experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Appreciate it!

I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever
run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog
not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
