I'm a runner. It's my thing. It's how I balance parenting, work, school, and everything else that comes my way. There's something so peaceful about getting outside and taking in the beauty that is all around me. It's the 'me time' I cherish the most.
I used to rely on a playlist of upbeat tunes for motivation. However, over the last year or so, I've spent my running time in prayer. I thanked God for the blessings He bestowed on my life--family, health, friends, and countless other things. I prayed to God asking him to guide and protect our family as we took this walk with Him. I made a covenant with God that I would go where He chose to lead me--where He chose to lead our family.
Our family is now on a different path, running a different race. It may be new to us, but it's one God had planned all along. We're going to run it as a family and give all the glory to God when we cross that finish line!
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize…we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
