Running for Recovery: Marathons of the Body, Mind, Spirit
In a physical marathon, the wall shows up about mile twenty or twenty-one; when this happens, mind and body shake hands to say we quit. Thats where most runners will shut down, unless they reach down into their identity as spirit. To the question Who am I; what is my identity? Gods answer is I am spirit; I have a mind; and I live in a body. So, to break through the wall requires a hierarchy of spirit over mind over body. Gods Word will address our spirit when mind and body are out of it, thereby setting Word over spirit over mind over body to keep the feet moving. Project this to other marathons: mental, spiritual, emotional, interpersonal, occupational, financial, etc. Bottom line: Can the reader finish the book, put it down, and say: Wow, look what Gods Word performed; I want to be in the Word; I want the Word to be in me? The closer the reader comes to Gods Word, the closer they come to Him (John 1:14). The Word will have become sent out (Isaiah 55:1011), active and alive (Hebrews 4:12), watched over and performed (Jeremiah 1:12) in their lives!
