Hurry vs Prayer

The more I hurry, the further behind I get. Jesus has turned much upside down in the spiritual realm. Poverty is the kingdom. Weak is strong. The foolishness of preaching brings salvation. To lead is to take the least position.

Could it be that having problems should first bring us to prayer instead of action? Pray then act! Not, do all you can and when there is nothing else we can do, pray!

If we believe we will pray. When we pray then we believe more.

Prayer of course is, preparation. If there is no action after prayer then prayer is faithless and therefore is useless.

Running the Race of Faith

God has not promised us an easy life. He said He will be with us. So let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

I found this video on youtube of: Lance Armstrong against Marco Pantani

Remember they are going up a mountain the whole way. (in the video)

Armstrong won the Tour de France that year. (2000) Pantini won it in 1998.

Armstrong went on to win the Tour de France again in 2001,2002,2003,2004 & 2005

Pantani died of a drug overdose in 2004.
