Recently, my wife and I were privilege to see the film “Run the Race” with our family. Focus on the Family described this film as:
Bessemer, Florida, doesn’t have much to offer the Truett brothers. At least, not anymore.
After their mom’s tragic death, high school seniors Dave and Zach Truett have tried to piece their lives back together, but it’s not been easy. Their father, Mike, left home and turned to the bottle to numb his pain. And the boys? Well, they’re working on their own things.
Dave is strengthening his faith as he recovers from a previous, life-threatening injury. And Zach? He’s an All-State football star, pouring his time, passion and energy into a game that he hopes will be the two brothers’ ticket out.
But after Zach injures his knee badly in a brawl, Dave is forced to find an alternative escape from Bessemer. Now, both brothers must work together to truly break free from their painful shared past.
As I watched the ending credits I was reminded that our God is crazy in love with us. He is crazy in love with you! He is crazy in love with me. The main character in the film Zach says at one point in the story, “You can run from God, or you can run to God.” My prayer this week for our athletes, families, coaches and this community is that no matter what we are facing in our lives... know that you are not alone... just run to God. He is waiting with arms wide open, because he loves you like crazy!
