Finish Line

Finish Line

This is a repost from unknown author. Very inspiring of a known runner.

Derek Redmond was favoured to win the 400 m race at the1992 Barcelona Olympics.
However, dissapointment came about 250 m from the finish, his hamstring tore.
As a stretcher beares made their way over to him, he knew that he wanted to finish the race.
He began to hobble along the track with pain atched upon his face.

Suddenly, a large man pushed through the crowds, fighting back security.
The man was his father, Jim Redmond.
"You don't have to finish this", he told to his weeping son.
"Yes I do", Dereck Declared.
"Well, then," said Jim, " We're going to finish this together".

What made the father do that... to leave the stands and meet his son on the tracks?
It was the pain of his child.
His son was hurt and fighting to finish the race so the father came to help him.

God is like that. When we are hurting fighting to finish, He comes and help us.
Our prayers may be awkward, aor attempts may be feeble.
But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it,
not the one who says it, our prayers do make difference.

Sometimes when we encounter pain and problems, we blame God of our misfortune. But the Lord promise us that He will not leave us. He allows these things to happen in our life so that we learn to love & close to Him.

Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
