I went walking today on the track at Morgan Park High School. Even though it was cold, walking in the fresh air felt so much better than sweating it out on some treadmill in a gym.
My son burst my bubble because I thought my four laps around the track was two miles, it felt like it. But he said that was only one mile! Dang. I thought I was doing something. And he told me that I was supposed to walk as fast as I could. So today I did a mile and a half in 35 minutes. I felt it too! Yup, I know I have a long way to go. But I am going….
So I will periodically post my updates. I am looking to make it up to two miles within a week or so, and improve my time. I am indeed a work in progress.
Have you ever made a difficult decision that goes against what most think is right for you? I had to do that recently, and after I made it I felt so bad. I could not understand why, but I have an idea. I am so accustomed to resolving my own problems and dilemmas, and now I have to give it to God. I mean like really give it to him, and for me that’s really difficult! Not knowing exactly what lies in front of me, is a lot of drama for me.
However, it is nothing I can not handle, because “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength”. Like the Apostle Paul, I have to learn how to have much and to have little, and still be content.
Lately there has been a mountain in my way. And I know just who put it there. I did! I’ve gotten in my own way and I need to move! I have been watching instead of participating. I see exactly what I am doing wrong, but I am not so sure how to get this mountain out of my way. I know it’s temporary, and all I need is to speak to it, and it will move. I feel weird having this mountain in my life, considering the catastrophes going on all around me.
I know that “joy” will come in the morning…….
