Run your race is essential in your career journey. Your career is a marathon (26.2 miles), not a 5K (3.1 miles) race. A marathon builds upon miles; that’s your career. A marathon is smooth sailing at the beginning but gets harder as it goes through the hills. Sometimes within a job, you will have to relearn the position again and again.
In some cases, you will be moved to another department because your services are no longer needed. Don’t’ give up and quit but master the new process. Running your race will build upon foundations that you previously made and conquered, so all the experience, knowledge, and ability will be fruitful for the track ahead. There is always some aspect of your current job used for your future job. Running your race is not comparing your career to your coworkers. Running your race is an invitation to allow God to make you in the masterpiece you are. Don’t be a copycat.
Isaiah 40:31 – But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Prayer – Father in Jesus’ name, help me to run my race as you have fashioned me. I know the race will not be quick, but I am asking that you give me stamina and strength to make the right decisions and choices. I pray that your Holy Spirit is right beside me, helping me every step of the way. Thank you, Amen.
