T.K. Ware’s Run the Race: 50 Days of Inspiration conveys the truth of the Bible coupled with motivational and imaginative insights. Each day starts with an enticing title that tempts your curiosity, such as “Aspire and Inspire,” “Live and Thrive,” and “Are you Motivated or Stagnated?” Right out of the starting block, you are challenged by what motivates you, encouraged to always be yourself, and to discover your potential. Along the way there are famous quotations and ample passages of scripture to encourage you in your daily walk or sprint to your next destination, or the marathon of life. No matter what kind of race you are in, the mind can create weighty burdensome obstacles. Run the Race is the quintessence of Hebrews 12:1, reminding us to throw aside all unnecessary weight, anything that entangles us, allowing us to run our race with endurance.

Run the Race: 50 Days of Inspiration is both scriptural and subjective. T.K. Ware’s passion to pen a message of motivating force is realized. The writing style is creative, eloquent and poetic at times. The ongoing theme of faith without actions is dead is woven throughout the text. Ware focuses a great deal on mindsets and harmful thoughts. He repeatedly reminds the reader to let go of encumbrances and wrong thinking and to concentrate on destiny, goals and purpose. Ware pens several nuggets of truth, and shares many insightful idioms as well: “Just because you cannot discern an exit, doesn’t mean one isn’t provided.” However, my favorite quote is “Life is beautiful if you can enjoy its diverse moments of felicity.” T.K. Ware inspires you to run your race well and at your own pace.

Battling & Overcoming Self:

We all at one point in our lives have entered a battle of some sort. A battle isn’t always a physical exertion of brutish force; the most profound battles are fought within the mind. Every argument or situation you’ve faced is a result of outward thoughts. The manifestation that occurs bodily is an assimilation of thoughts, derived from your perception, which is a product of your environment.

  • How many times have you warred in your mind over a situation, trying to come up with a solution, but found yourself reliving the event?
  • Have negative thoughts ever flooded your mind to such a degree that you didn’t know what to do?
  • Do unholy thoughts enter your mind in waves, drowning you in a seat of remorse?

We must understand that thoughts are intangible (spirit) and can only become tangible (physical) through our acts. There are times when we make mistakes and somehow can’t mentally break free from those events. Instead, you find yourself re-experiencing the event mentally and constantly asking for forgiveness, hoping that God will somehow erase your mind of all traces of that moment….

Run the Race: 50 Days of Inspiration:

Many people spend the majority of their time battling thoughts of insecurity. This way of thinking will cause the body to manifest the emotions thereof. In the process, we beat ourselves up and summon a heap of assumptions. In this mindset, we approach people, thinking they have evil thoughts about us, and we believe the lies we have created within the walls of our mind. An explosion will erupt at the end of this cycle and people will become emotionally damaged or relationships will become altered….

21 Day Journey of Inspiration:

It is beneficial to ponder on the words we speak. When harsh words exit your mouth toward a loved one, family member, or friend, the wall of respect is shattered. In some cases, marriage ends in divorce, jobs are lost, fights are initiated, and friendships are destroyed. Unlike merchandise, you cannot return those words, even with multiple apologies, which really aren’t needed. You must search within and find out the reason why you harbored and allowed those words to come out.

Once you acknowledge your lack of control, search thoroughly within, and then pray for deliverance. Sometimes our actions are the product of unresolved emotions toward a particular event, dating as far as our childhood or another relationship. Uncontrolled emotions are like a hurricane landing on a small village….

Only A Thought Away

Every day we have the opportunity to make a difference within ourselves. So what if yesterday was filled with devastating events that shook your foundation? Yesterday has past. The only way it can affect your future is if “you” give it power. When we bring yesterday into today we are robbing ourselves of the potential bliss that yet awakes. I’m sure if there were time-travel machines available that millions of people would go back in time, and undue some of the mistakes they have made in the past. I too was one of those millions until I realized that the only way for wisdom, and knowledge to come is through past experiences. Experiences help channel our thoughts to a certain solution whenever a similar challenge arise. The key is to learn from the past and utilize the acquired knowledge to change our mindset for the future. Brighter days are only a thought away.
