A revelation

I absolutely love what the Word of God can do in our hearts. Sometimes it’s an overwhelming feeling of awe and some times it can feel like a slap in the face. I just finished Jennie Allen’s Reckless Bible study (and it was AMAZING and highly recommended) and a recurring theme of running kept entering my mind for the entire ten weeks. I love running. It gives me a sense of strength knowing my body can achieve what it does while running. I run four to five times a week and it never occurred to me how my love for running can intertwine with God’s Word and Will. And then Hebrews 12:1 hit me smack in the face, “Let us run the race set before with perseverance”. I train to build m perseverance/endurance to run longer and faster. This is exactly what I should be doing every day in my Christian walk of faith. I am running the race (life) God set before me and I need to endure and strengthen myself to disciple and give God away to those who need Him. My morning runs have taken on a whole new meaning since this wonderful God slap in the face, if you will, revelation, and it is awesome.

  1. Oh My. I’ll be following your 31 days! God is speaking loudly the same message to me as well! I led an if:pray last week, too and I know God is pouring out His spirit in NEW ways. I’m ready to run this race with whoever will run with me. I may drag some people kicking and screaming, too ; )
