Well, I do not have a personal trainer, but I really wish I had one on this day. I thought things would go smoothly after having arrived early for my first big train trip from this city to a neighboring country. However, things did not go as planned.

As we went to the platform to board the train with what seemed to be electronic tickets, my friends and I found ourselves racing against time to make it on the train with proper tickets thus allowing us to board.

Thankfully, after a 5 minute sprint both ways with luggage in tow, we passed the first conditioning test in training against time by making it into our humble wagon with a few minutes to spare before it pulled out. God was definitely gracious to us in those moments and gave our hearts peace when we were finally outbound.

I am reminded of one of my favorite passages in the Bible that states, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Just as I did not want to lose sight of making my goal to get on the train that day, most importantly I do not want to lose sight of this, the biggest goal of my life put so well by the Apostle Paul in Philippians 3:14.

“I can do all things through him {Jesus Christ} who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13, is my life verse. I do have a Personal Trainer – it is God. The best part is that being trained by Him is both free of money and freeing. Who wouldn’t fancy such a trainer?
