-It is no longer about running a marathon. The point is now that I must learn to trust God everyday to do things that I do not think I am capable of doing. And truth be told, I do not particularly always want to do this. I see Him give me the resolve to simply obey and do the work that He has put in front of me (today it was 7 miles is 8:23 min / miles).
-When all my strength is completely spent, I will find more. Always. Because my Source never runs dry.
I raise my hands when I am empty and run several steps like I'm winning Boston. But it is worship to my King who faced a cross for me. The least I can do is offer small obediences. I know the walkers at the fairgrounds think I'm nuts. I look like a charismatic running to the altar at a tent meeting. I'm o.k. with that analogy.
These are the gems that I am gathering along my long routes through this marathon training. Thanks for following along...
