Chariots of Fire. It's a favorite movie of mine. Ever seen it? It's a 1981 British historical drama film. It tells the inspirational story of two amazing athletes who compete in the 1924 Olympics:  Harold Abrahams, an Englishman who runs to overcome prejudice and Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God. 

A favorite quote from the film is when Eric Liddell says, "I believe God made me for a purpose...and when I run, I feel His pleasure." 


How amazing is that?? To FEEL God's pleasure! To feel the glory being given to Him! 


It got me thinking about what I do to bring God glory. What is my purpose? How do I feel His pleasure over me, my life? 


Three BIG questions. And to be honest, I don't believe I have them all figured out perfectly. I'm trying though. And I believe our efforts bring Him both glory and pleasure. 

Maybe you're not a runner. Maybe you're one of those people who will only be caught running if you're being chased by something...a dog, a bear, a mob of people dying to know where you got your slimming leggings and super soft tank! The important thing is that we chase after God. I have to be disciplined enough to seek Him daily, to stay in constant communication with Him and what He wants me to accomplish that day, what He wants me to do to bring Him glory. 


Isn't that what life is all about? Running the race. Feeling His pleasure in those valleys and peaks, those peaceful seasons and battle seasons alike? It's all about Him. 


So, before the summer's over, add "Chariots of Fire" to your watch list. It may not make an Olympian out of you, but it may ignite your passion that is hiding within you. And if you ARE a runner, who knows? Maybe it'll shave a few seconds off your mile time....especially if you're sporting some fabulous Glory Activewear! 


"Everyone runs in her own way, or his own way. And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within." -Eric Liddell
