Short Sprint

Spread the love

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”  1 Thessalonians 5:11
I was listening to a message by Greg Surratt, Pastor of Seacoast church in South Carolina.  I loved what he does instead of making resolutions at the beginning of the New Year.
He chooses to do short sprints.
A short sprint, as defined by him, is choosing a verse, such as 1 Thessalonians 5:11 and then committing to doing it for a period of time.  It could be 7 days, 14 days or 21 days, whatever he chooses.
His church was starting a 21 day fast, so he was going to do a short sprint during that time.  I can’t remember what verse he had chosen.  What a great partner practice during a fast.  I wish I had listened to this message at the beginning of our 21 day fast.
Nonetheless, you can start a short sprint at any time.  Of course, I now have the desire to start a short sprint.
My first short sprint is going to be all about 1 Thessalonians 5:11. I want to speak only uplifting and encouraging words to everyone, no exceptions.  From my husband to the passerby on the street, for the next 21 days I’m going to focus on this particular verse.
I’m so excited, can’t wait to see what God does with my first short sprint!
Ready, set, go!
