On my run the other day, I came across this graffiti. I hadn’t been able to go running for awhile and felt ready to quit. I was thirsty, tired, and weak.

I looked up and on the wall a kind soul had written, “Keep on runnin.” As if I stumbled into an oasis, these three words were enough to cheer me to the end. My spirits lifted, the smile that had all but melted off my face, returned, and I quickened my pace until my feet found home.

Encouragement can be an oasis.

Remember to encourage those around you. It might be just enough to help them finish the race.
