Yesterday I did my first 20 minute jog and to tell you the truth I didn’t feel my body was ready for it. I thought the lady on my MP3 player was asking a lot of me to jump from 5 to 8 and then to 20 minutes all in one week.
I shared my feeling this with my son as I took him to baseball practice and told him I was thinking about just doing the two 8 minutes runs again. I also shared with him that scripture say’s “in our weakness he is made strong” and “that I could do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. I dropped him off at practice and pondered what I would do all the way home.
I am so glad I chose to trust God. I went for my run and I felt so good afterwards. I really felt a sense of accomplishment and when my son asked me if I ran for 20 minutes I was so glad I could tell him YES!
I absolutely love it. Where is her focus? On Jesus. Everything else just falls into place. And that part where she could "tell him YES!"??? *Sigh* Bliss.
