One mile run in high school. Something to Think About! Pastor Shafer

Some of you may remember that there was a time in school that I ran the mile on the track team. (By the way, we ran on cinder tracks). You start the race with great expectation. Then you reach the race markers…440, 880, 1320, 1760 (One Mile). Each marker becomes a little more challenging. 440 is not too bad and if you’re in good shape and you have trained well at 880 you still feel pretty good. But probably somewhere around the 1320 (3rd lap) things begin to hurt. You’re breathing is much more labored. As you begin the 4th lap you are probably looking around to see where the competition is at…Perhaps you realize they’re all ahead of you! You’re goal at that point seems almost unreachable. Then you reach 220 yards to go and something happens. You begin to see the finish line, you develop new energy…a second wind, maybe it’s the third wind, hope is renewed, and you give it all you’ve got leaning into the ribbon at the finish line. The best goals are the goals that are bigger than you are, that force you to stretch beyond yourself, to move into the realm of the impossible — where God’s power can go to work for you — like it did for…
 • Nehemiah, the slave in Babylon who got the idea that he could rebuild the walls of Jerusalem  and restore the glory of the holy city.
 • Or like it did for young David, a kid whose job was watching sheep. He had a vision that he could be a man victorious in battle — and he was: he killed the giant Goliath.
 • Or like it did for Paul the apostle, who had a vision of preaching the gospel and planting churches and seeing Christianity spread throughout the known world.
 
Great people of God have great vision. Great people of God have faith to dream big dreams.
I challenge you to join your brothers and sisters at the Eleventh Street Church of God and dream a big dream.
I challenge you to develop a tremendous vision for what God can accomplish through His church at the Eleventh Street Church of God.
“There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?”  – George Bernard Shaw
 
We are approaching the one year anniversary of our Capital Fund Campaign. I challenge you to be bold enough to expect the impossible, and courageous enough to believe Paul’s words: God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
