Hitting the Wall

My work has certainly diversified. I had a really fun meeting today and one thing we really need prayer for is for God to provide a way to Japan long term, if He so wills. I like to run hard with what God gives me to do. But sometimes the challenges can look kind of overwhelming.

Farrar wrote in Finishing Wellthat only 20% of Christian men finish well. That’s pretty daunting when you think of some of the really hard places we can encounter in life. Just like marathon runners we can “hit the wall”–but how do we get back up and finish the race? According to Farrar who conducted extensive research, the only ones (20%) who finish well have an ongoing intimate relationship with Christ and experience repeated times of renewal in His presence. Lord, keep me close and in step with your Spirit!


  1. II Titus 4: 7 – 8 says it best. Though some had left his side, the faithful remained true to the end. He had fought the good fight and finished the race.

    We are praying for your strong finish.
