There are different types of runners. Some run a short distance race while others run a long distance race. Although they are all runners, their preparations and endurances are different. A long distance runner has to be prepared to be in the race for many hours, while a short distance runner may finish his race in few seconds or minutes.
Your preparations should tell as to whether you want to do something for a short time or long time. If you want to do it for longer, you need to be prepared for the hardship and pains of the journey. Your mind should be prepared to wait longer for the fruit of your endurance. Get ready for the long lasting journey with humility and patience, enduring the pain and sufferings when necessary.
The bible in
Jas 5:7 says “Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.” Get ready for the long lasting journey. From Simtandile Dlepuma. Stay blessed
