At times in our life, we face obstacles that seem too difficult. We label them impossible and in doing so, we limit our own potential to achieve greatness.
In 1977, 15 year old Rick Hoyt, a spastic quadriplegic with cerebral palsy, asked his father if he could participate in a five mile benefit run. Though his father was not a long-distance runner, he ran the entire five miles, pushing Rick’s wheelchair.
Since that time, they have completed together over 1000 races, including marathons, duathlons, triathalons and six Ironman competitions. In 1992, they biked and ran across the United States – 3,735 miles in 45 days.
Witness the love of this one father for his son and consider, if he would do all this for his son, How much does God love you?
