I just read, viagra order mind for the second time, stomach a great book: Running with God: A personal journal with the maker of the universe (Berry Simpson, XULON). I encourage you to get a copy!
The chapter, ‘I FINALLY GOT TO USE MY I.D’, is funny and at the same time, has a solid message. His story caused me to think further about what spiritual lessons could be learned from his story.
Before I get into what I came up with I should explain to you who may not know what ID Berry was talking about.
The Road ID® is USA’s #1 Source for Runners ID, Cycling ID…Road ID provides premier line of identification tags that includes runner id, jogger id, cyclist id, medical id, bicycling id, emergency medical id bracelet and more.
The price is well worth the item! It is light in weight and looks good as well!
Ok – back to what I thought about after reading that chapter.
Berry had mistakenly taken the wrong key with him as he rushed out to do get in a run in on the Animas River Trail in Farmington, New Mexico, where he was visiting. The key he thought was his hotel key was in fact his rental car key!
After an hour-long run he was looking forward to get back to his room and take a needed shower before proceeding with the event of the rest of the day. The discovery of having the wrong key was just the beginning of ‘this situation’.
Picture him at the Holiday Inn desk, already feeling uncomfortable, standing there explaining about taking the wrong key with him running, sweating in his running shorts and singlet and being asked: “Do you have any identification?”
This is how he shared his answer in his book: “…I finally got to use the ID tag that I had worn on my left running shoe for the past 15 years. I had been waiting for this moment for such a long time.
I wasn’t limber enough to put my foot up on the desk, so I pulled off my left shoe and held it out to the desk clerk so she could read the ID tag. She was stunned. Maybe it was from being so close to my stinky shoe, or maybe from the surprise that I did indeed have an ID – I don’t know. As I walked away with a new room key, the other clerks were giggling behind my back. I didn’t care. I just knew I would use that ID someday.”
My Road ID has my name, address and my wife’s cell phone number on one side of the tag and my favorite Bible verse on the other: They shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint ( Isaiah 40:31)
Although this special tag is important in case of a physical emergency while you are doing your miles (or have the wrong key!), remember your indemnification in who you are in Christ Jesus while you are ANYWHERE! You could just well be the person in time of life or death of a person to share Jesus. As you share Jesus to others who are not saved, you could be the one to help in that ‘spiritual emergency’.
“We are Christ’s ambassadors. God is using us to speak to you: we beg you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, receives the love he offers you – be reconciled to God (LBV) – 2 Corinthians 5:20)
ALWAYS REMEBER WHO YOU ARE!
