I first saw this video when I was sitting at my son’s karate class and I nearly started to cry. Soon the 2012 Summer Olympics will begin and they will be filled with many touching moments. But this video below is of a special young man, Derek Redmond, who pulled a hamstring in the 1992 Olympics when running the 400 meters semi-final. As he limped around the track, his dad met him and helped him finish.
There is noting wrong with wanting to finish the races in our lives, but look around, because God isn’t expecting you to run the race on your own. Like Derek’s dad, God is running to meet you and run beside you, at whatever pace you are able, incredibly proud of who you are.
