Be the Light.

It has been over a month since I last posted. I have thought about it but didn't have the words. Didn't want to share. Or more scared to share for fear that it would make it more real. I felt overwhelmed and discouraged.

However God has brought us hope and comfort in his Word. He continually places people in our life that care and love for us deeply. I am in awe at how strangers have become friends as they have reached out in prayers and love. Bottom line is that God is good. His love endures and His light will always outshine darkness. I feel like my hubby and I are continually learning how to draw near to God. Darkness and evil tries to break your spirit and make you live in fear. This is not from God. We stand firm in the promises of God and stay strong in our deep love for each other.

The horrid events of the Boston Marathon breaks my heart and made me want to write. Even though my heart is broken...my spirit is strong.

So much hurt and suffering. It can become too much. However I am encouraged to see God's light and spirit rise up and declare that this is not ok, that we will overcome and that darkness always, always loses in the end.

My prayers go out to every life that his been impacted by such horrible events. Prayers for healing and comfort that can only come from God. Thankful for the running community and the kindness of others. We are a resilient bunch!! Much love to you all! Choose to be the light.

I don't even know what to say and feel no matter what I say it is not the right thing. I'm still in shock but at the same so incredible proud of the runner community! If I wouldn't be a runner already, I would be one by now. Hearing all the amazing things runners did and still do gives me goose bumps!

Amen to that! I'm a new visitor to your blog - but had to comment on this. Your post brought the verse 2 Timothy 1:7 to mind, "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."

God makes us strong even in times of tragedy! God bless and happy running :)
