Hebrews 12:1 – “…let us throw off everything that hinders us..and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us”
In this life, we run multiple races – race to be the best at our job, race to be the best mom/dad, race to achieve a goal or dream; etc. We become so busy that we forget to take care of ourselves. Too many times, we allow ourselves to put ourselves on the “back-burner” in order to keep up with all the other races. However, our bodies and mind will wear down if we do not put ourselves first.
Remember, it’s okay to say no sometimes in order to get time for you to exercise and it’s okay to buy healthy foods and cook healthy. In order to run and win all of these races in our lives, we have to first strive to win the race to take care of ourselves!
