It’s easy to start strong.
It’s hard to finish strong.
It requires pit stops.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest … Matthew 11:28 NRSV
Timely, intentional pit stops.
What pit stops do you have planned this summer? (A radical commitment to Sabbath Keeping? Retreat? Morning prayer? Evening walks? A getaway vacation? A meal with a friend?)
I’d love to hear about them. Your idea may be what someone across the country or across the world needs to hear.
- Exciting note! Feedback from the first 12-weeks of posts has been strong and encouraging. Because of this, it’s being compiled into an e-book, a free resource for current and new subscribers. It will be available this summer during a relaunch of the blog and will include reflection questions for personal and small group use. I pray it will be a valuable tool and vehicle of growth in the lives of many. Hold this project up in prayer. Until this relaunch, I will be posting previously written articles and little bits here and there. Blessings!
Is This Your First Time Here?
Run hard. Rest well. launched in March 2013. If this topic grabs your heart, we’d like to encourage you to subscribe to this weekly blog. The information to do so is located on the right hand side of this page. Along the way, we’ve encouraged folks to read the first 12-weeks of posts found in the archives. (But no rush. Go slow.) Start with Week 1 (from March). Each post is numbered and lays an important foundational insight into the life-giving rhythm Run hard. Rest well.
- The site is under construction for a few weeks right now to compile the e-book, re-vamp the site and prepare to launch out into a broader spectrum of people. During this time I am going to send out links to articles I’ve written for various Christianity Today print and on-line publications over the last few years. With their permission (and handy links), I pray these articles bless and encourage.
