Motivation for your miles.

“I CHOOSE JOY”

Leave a comment

No matter what language we speak, where we were born or where we live now…I’ve observed all over the world, the one thing we share in common is “emotion”.

Last week was a very emotional week for me.  My little girl, transformed into a beautiful young lady as she went to her first prom, the Boston Marathon bombing & West , TX explosion occurred, then there was the passing of a friend of 17 years on Friday…I haven’t done much writing.  Or should I say…I have done some writing, but very little sharing.  It was a week that proved…running doesn’t fix everything…only Jesus can do that.

So today, I decided to share these few thoughts from last week:

What do you believe in enough to stand up for in the face of adversity. 

Those are the things that you love.

I love the Lord.  I love His healing power. 

I love the United States of America.  I love freedom.

I love friendships and the celebration of life.

I love that what the devil intends for evil, when we follow the Lords leading, He turns it into good.

and

I love it when “sad” is turned into “resolve”

-“determination”-

and eventually,

it’s own form of  

“happy”.

Different…but good.

 Today I choose joy…it is a choice you know.

Running inspires me to live. It helped me remember what winning felt like during a season of loss. The Lord speaks to me most during the miles....because there I'm giving Him the time to do so. These are the things that motivate me to run. I hope they inspire you to live God's best for your life as well. Happy Running!
