World Run Day

Tomorrow is World Run Day, which I am so stinking excited about!!

Why do I run?

I run for many reasons, really, when you do something so punishing to your body you need to have many good reasons. Many really good reasons to run in the freezing cold, blistering heat, soaking rain and dark of night to remind yourself why, just why you are out there.

But one of those really good reasons and probably the biggest one is because I was told I couldn’t. And I believed it. I didn’t think I could.

And I discovered I was believing a lie.

I run because I can. It might not look good, or I might have terrible form, but I run because I can.

And I give God the glory for it. Acts 17:28 baby.

Why do you run?

Day 5

Today I am thankful for my husband. He is an awesome man and so good to me.

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 4

Today I am thankful to be able to volunteer in my daughters classroom for even just a few hours. My dear sweet husband watches our son on his day off so that I can give a little back. I’m so grateful for that.

30 Days of Thankfulness – Day 3

There is so much to be thankful for, it’s hard to pick. I guess that’s why this is 30 days. Today I am thankful for the ability to run. I am breaking the mold in my family of origin that we don’t run. Well guess what WE CAN!

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 2

Today I am thankful for painkillers like ibuprofen. Hello Migraine!

30 Days of Thankfulness – Day 1

So I’m game and it’s good for myself to count my blessings, day by day.

Today I’m thankful for healthy children…all of them.

Conviction

The Lord never lets us go, ya know?  It seems he’s always working on something with us.

I’ve known for a while that the Lord was pricking my spirit about a show I watch.  It’s a horrible show with very poor morality.  But I couldn’t give it up!  That should’ve been a clue.  It was addictive.  It’s terrible.  I watch Grey’s Anatomy.  The language, the relationships, the sexual immorality.  Ugh.  It’s bad.  But I kept ignoring the Lord.  First mistake.  And he’s been nudging me about this for some time.  Well He got me today.  I’m giving it up.

God demands a pure bride.  The bible sets out guidelines about what we put in our minds.  Garbage in, garbage out.

And another thing.  Running is a hobby/habit/enjoyment.  But I struggled with if the Lord wanted me to do it.  He taught me that He doesn’t want me giving it up, He just wants me to give it to Him.  Hmm.  That works.
