So hopefully many of you who follow Tall Mom....heard the good news. She qualified for the Boston marathon. WOO HOO!! I am so happy for her! CONGRATS! Even better today was Compassion Sunday and I had 30 precious children all needing sponsors. 9 children found families today and I am so happy and thankful that their life will be forever changed. I am hopeful next week that God will move more people to sponsor a child as well. God is BIG and can make anything possible. For some that impossible becoming POSSIBLE may be qualifying for the Boston Marathon, running their first 5K, or having a family sponsor them after waiting for so long for that little extra help. We all have dreams and hopes that sometimes we lose to fear.
Today was a good reminder that the things God commands and calls us to do is not always going to be easy or comfortable. Believing in his faithfulness and leaning on him helps me do and try so many things. For example, setting up this Compassion Sunday and not knowing IF anyone would even care or be able to help these children??? We all know how that turned out!! Another example would be the day I clicked that button signing up to run a my first MARATHON in October. I have doubts....serious doubts but if I keep going back to God as my source of strength I know that anything is possible. It is going to be a long road, but I won't be alone.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and found some time to run, worship and play!
