The miracle isn’t that I finished. It’s that I had the courage to start. (John Bingham, Marathon Runner)

Most people look at marathon runners with admiration and, maybe, a little envy. Don’t we all wish that we could compete well in such a race? But, wishing doesn’t make it happen, and you can’t finish a race you haven’t started. Of course, there’s a great deal of preparation and training that’s needed, too. So, whatever the project, let’s set our goal and get started!

Now begin the work, and the Lord be with you (1 Chronicles 22:16).
