Day 30-RUN!

This is not about going back.
This is about life being ahead of you and you run at it!
Because you never know how far you can run unless you run.
--from the movie Secretariat
This is a wonderfully inspiration movie. Some of the opening lines are actually quoted right from the Bible. This video clip is the trailer for the movie. Towards the end she says part of the quote from above. I couldn't find a clip of just that quote. But the trailer is inspirational even without hearing the exact quote.
“Have you given the horse its strength
    or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?
 Did you give it the ability to leap like a locust?
    Its majestic snorting is terrifying!
 It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength
    when it charges out to battle.
 It laughs at fear and is unafraid.
    It does not run from the sword.
 The arrows rattle against it,
    and the spear and javelin flash.
 It paws the ground fiercely
    and rushes forward into battle when the ram’s horn blows.
 It snorts at the sound of the horn.
    It senses the battle in the distance.
    It quivers at the captain’s commands and the noise of battle."
Job 39:19-25
Penny Chenery wasn't afraid to take a chance on a horse everyone said couldn't win.
She didn't care that people thought she was incapable because she was "just a housewife".
We can't live life afraid. Moving forward is impossible when we are weighed down by fear.
We don't "live" at all, when we allow ourselves to stay stagnant out of fear.
If we never venture out, and run how will we ever know what we are capable of, where we can go, what we can do?
When I first thought about writing the thought of putting my words out there for people to see was still is. But if I never tried I would never know if I could. The worst thing anyone can do , is to not do something in life. The things left undone are what we will regret most when we see our savior.
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us
As usual, if you haven't seen this movie, I would say you should.
