Marathon of Life

According Rev. Scott Stoner from his Weekly Words of Wellness, “A marathon is not just a running race.” It is about the human race of courageous power and perseverance of human spirit. In our own way, each of us is running some kind of marathon in our lives. For some maybe several marathons. It might be a marathon of hard work, parenting, caring for a love one, working for peace and justice, recovering from addiction or some kind of a loss or setback. Life itself is its own marathon. There are no beginners and no experts. They are simply souls who are inspired to do the best they can, give it all they have, and to keep moving forward by putting one foot in front of the other.  According to Ephesians 2:10 “For we are what he has made us…God  prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”
