The "Running" Season
It's easy to settle into the mindset that life is good because I am good. But in reality, life is good because God is good, and everything He does serves a greater purpose in our lives. If you're in a season of "favor" and you're in "running motion", it is a time to get focused, to make hay, to run with patient endurance. It's a time to do great things, to bear much fruit, and to make up for lost time. It's time to run with purpose in every step.
This is not the time to sit on the couch of comfort and ease. And it's certainly not a time to doddle with things that don't matter. Sabbath rest and moments of replenishment are essential in all of our seasons of life, but I've found that in the "running" season, there will be times when you want to rest and you even think you should rest, but God still calls you to run.
(A quick caveat: God calls us to regular Sabbath rest, which, if we fail to practice, we'll fall headlong into burnout. Even the "running" season of our lives involves regular sabbath rest.)
Each time you step forward in utter faith, and you "run", God will meet you, strengthen you, show up and work wonders through you. Learn to trust Him more and accomplish the impossible with God.
