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”

What is Your Focus?

As I began thinking about this I wondered if maybe my focus was off.  What is Christmas about anyway?  I researched a little on what the worlds view was and I found out that the percentage of people who believe in the true reason of Christmas is slowly declining. Do we spend too much ofContinue reading “What is Your Focus?”

Peaceful Feet

Are your feet peaceful with one another?  Are your feet peaceful with your shoes?  Are they peaceful with the road?  Without our feet we could not run- obviously, right?  Most everyone has had to deal with some kind of foot pain and it’s kind of annoying- especially the persisting ones that seem to nag youContinue reading “Peaceful Feet”

“I Am Never Running Again”

Have you ever watched a hurdles race? To me that looks awful. Running straight forward is hard enough, but running and then jumping over fences throughout the race… no thank you. I sometimes just struggle picking my feet up high enough so that I don’t scrape my shoe across the pavement. But do you knowContinue reading ““I Am Never Running Again””

There Are No Rocking Chair Marathons

Can you see it? You are watching the Boston Marathon and realize in the middle of the road sits a rocking chair with a young man on it. Quietly he rocks, swaying back and forth as each runner passes him. He looks pretty rested and peaceful but neatly etched into his brows to where youContinue reading “There Are No Rocking Chair Marathons”

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”

CrossRoads

I was supposed to have this post published by noon on Monday, but I got so busy and tired that it has taken a few days to complete. Of late, I have really enjoyed listening to a homemaking podcast by Jamie Belmont. Though her talks are for wives and mothers, almost every one of themContinue reading “CrossRoads”
