Is God’s Strength an Illusion or Reality?

You read about His miracles in the Bible, you hear about answered prayers from different people, you see God working in others’ lives, yet when it comes to your own life, why does it seem like such a fantasy?  You may wonder, “Is God’s strength an illusion or does it really exist?” When you prayContinue reading “Is God’s Strength an Illusion or Reality?”

Passion and Love

Easter is often seen as colorful Easter eggs and pretty gift baskets, filled with all kinds of goodies.  When I was younger I would love finding these baskets, eating the delicious treats and receiving the many gifts.  Outdoor cookouts with friends and family… it becomes another holiday full of happiness and fun.  But this yearContinue reading “Passion and Love”

Forever Running, But Losing the Race

After four years of running, I wished I had put more miles under my shoes than I have.  I feel like I have been running forever and I’ve gotten nowhere.  Looking back at the miles I have logged, I can’t seem to see any difference in my times or pace.  My legs seem to notContinue reading “Forever Running, But Losing the Race”

Why Do You Love Me?

I felt like I rammed face first into a concrete wall when someone asked me this question.  I had never been asked that before.  Why do you love me?  I had never even thought of it.  I have always said that I loved God because He first loved me, because that’s what the Bible says. Continue reading “Why Do You Love Me?”

Is Your Vision 2020?

New Year resolutions, goals, decisions, purposes, hopes, dreams, prayers, intentions…  Everybody talks about it.  Some of the most common have to do with health, weight loss, money, and ending bad habits.  I mean that’s what our life revolves around right?  We need money to live and most everything we do, because we live in ourContinue reading “Is Your Vision 2020?”

Taking the Leap

All of these questions began filling my mind as I prayed about this week’s post.  A few years back, God shared with me a promise that I have a hard time hoping in, a difficult time believing in, and an extremely hard time trusting Him with.  I know if He said it, it must beContinue reading “Taking the Leap”

Run the Mile You are In

Run the mile you’re in… I had seen it many times before but I don’t think I ever totally understood what it really meant. Jesus said not to think about tomorrow because it has its own problems. We are to only think about today. Today is the mile we are in. Take one moment atContinue reading “Run the Mile You are In”

Letting go of the Weight

So last week I had been meditating on Hebrews 12:1 a little. I’ve been praying about my running and my physical weight… Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us runContinue reading “Letting go of the Weight”
