The Pressing of the Crowds

“And He went off with him, and a great multitude was following Him and pressing in on Him.” -Mark 5:24

Does this possibly describe your life? Do you feel that you have a great multitude following you and pressing in on you?

This verse comes from the story of Jesus going with Jairus to heal his daughter. The miracles and teaching of our Lord had caused quite the stir and a large crowd was waiting for him as he got out of the boat to be met by Jairus and others. An amazing part of the story is that in the midst of that crowd, a woman with a chronic illness pushed through and touched Him.

Running the Race

Share Button

Running has been on my mind lately, mostly because it’s also been under my feet. Do not let this post fool you, because I certainly am not an expert. I’ve only run two competitive races in my life, and they were ten years apart. The rest of the time, I’ve been a fair weather runner. I would occasionally lace up my shoes if the day felt right, and if I had nothing else I could convince myself to do instead.
