The last twenty four hours have been an emotional whirlwind.
My last post I was discouraged, angry and just wanting to throw in the towel. 24 hours later and I am feeling encouraged and refreshed.
Thankful that I have friends in my life that are compassionate and understanding.
I was reminded that things are not normal right now. I am learning that there are things in my life that distract me from God and I need to weed some of those things from my life. Despite my circumstances I still have the opportunity to share my faith. I guess I am feeling strongly about "making it count" these days because life seems so fragile. Just need to figure out how to express that and grow in my faith.
So thank you for you kind words. Anger, fear, frustration and doubt do not come from God. But all of those emotions are part of my reality. I just have to not allow myself to stay in those places.
So today as I ran 11 miles. My longest run in a long time. I prayed for friends. I raised my hands in praise. I pushed through physical and emotional pain. I started and I finished. One run. One day at a time. (p.s. my legs are killing me)
So the journey continues.
A friend shared this verse with me tonight as well as a a bag full of handwritten notes of encouragement and prayers. Pretty sure God knew I needed a pick me up.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have HOPE because of the Lord's great LOVE. We are not consumed. For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. Lamentation 3 21-23
