Isn’t that how life is supposed to be? Aren’t we all running a race together? Who is with you pacing you, has God sent you to be there for someone else? Push through to the end, encourage and run the race.
One day I hope to wake up and realize that there is someone, like the tall Tanzanian, pacing with me and that we’ll finish the race together.
“A good friend builds us up so that we want to become and to accomplish all that our friend believes we can be and do . . . .
A good friend can help you become more productive, have a higher energy level, and have more enthusiasm for life. A good friend gives you the confidence to take godly risks, embrace new challenges, and move to the next level in your work or hobby. When you know that someone loves you and is standing with you and believes in you . . . you are far more willing to step out in faith and develop your full potential physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. A good friendship gives you an abiding confidence.” -C.F. Stanley
