This past Sunday the message was on “Better Worship”. Before the service had started, I was thinking about running, and if it could possibly be a “spiritual” thing. The verse Col. 3:23 came to mind, “Whatever you do – in work, in deed – do it with all your heart as unto the Lord.” And it occurred to me, if that is indeed true (which I believe it is), then anything we do has a spiritual aspect. I don’t know why all of this is such a big deal for me, it just is. I guess it’s just any part of myself I give to something… I want it to count. I want running to become a form of worship to my God. Christ in my running, Christ in my homeschooling, Christ in my cleaning, Christ in my shuttling kids around, Christ in EVERYTHING I do.
Here is my “half marathon verse”:
I keep my eyes on the Lord, with Him by my right hand I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8
I want to run for all the right reasons… God let me run
for Your glory
for all the TC girls
for all the reason that I would ever quit over
This is something for You.. help me achieve balance in all I do!!
