And When I Run, I Feel His Pleasure

More from Chariots of Fire. I love this scene. Though many have supported and encouraged Eric Liddel in his bid to run for England in the 1924 Olympic games, one very close to him hasn't; his sister Jennie. She's concerned that this running and talk of medals is derailing him from his true calling (in her mind); the mission in China. It all comes to ahead when Eric is late for a missions meeting because of his training.

"And when I run, I feel his pleasure." Rick Warren would say Eric understood his S.H.A.P.E. (Spiritual Gifts - Heart - Abilities - Personality - Experiences). There are things I do that when I do them, I can feel His pleasure; reading to my kids, tucking them in at night, reading, studying, teaching, preaching, drumming, presenting Bible truths to the kids at church, etc. How about you? Are there certain things you do that when you do them, you can feel God's pleasure?

I purchased the DVD and used a softward program by Aimersoft called DVD Ripper to get specific segment. I then will usually do final trimming and and a fadein/fadout effect using Microsoft Movie Maker. I'm not sure what license requirements there are for showing the clip in public. Hope this helps. Thanks from dropping by. Merry Christmas.

Hey, thanks for this clip. Is there a way to get the code for it? I'd love to use it myself, but I'm not sure how to grab the code. Thanks.

Thanks for this. I linked to your article because I used the same quote from Liddel and couldn't find it anywhere.
