Today's Training: I was schedule for a 2 mile run, but I was really feeling it today. It was a comfortable temperature, the sun was setting on the palm trees, and I really just got in the groove. I wound up going 2.4 miles by running for 4 minutes then walking for 1 minute. From everything I've been reading, alternating running and walking helps build up endurance, which is definitely something I need to be doing if I'm going to finish 13.1 miles!
Faith Find: Thankfully, the rain held off this evening. I prayed that I would be able to complete my run in this unpredictable Florida weather, and God-willing, I got it in. I decided to listen to Jennifer Knapp's album Kansas. It's an oldie, but DEFINITELY a goodie! I've listened to those songs over and over and over again, but something new was revealed to me today. The bridge in "Martyrs and Thieves" ends with these lyrics:
"Could it be that my worth should defend
by the crimson-stained grace on a hand?
And like a lamp on a hill, Lord, I pray in Your will
to reveal all of You that I can"
I've been having a tough time with a co-worker, and I was praying at the beginning of my run that I may be a witness to her and that in my dealings with her, I would reveal God. These lyrics really struck me when I heard them. It's hard for me to reveal God if I'm just trying to do it on my own. It's crazy how God uses a song I've listened to so many times to relate to my situation now. Again, praise God for speaking to me!
