I’m not much of a runner… what scratch that… I’m not a runner.  There are times when I wish I liked to run.  It looks relaxing and freeing and it is good exercise, I guess.  I have never been athletic… at all.  I had a brief stint as a Volleyball Player in 8th grade.  It was okay.  I liked playing but the coach didn’t put me in much so I didn’t get a lot of practice.  Then the next year when Volleyball season came around I decided that I would be in the Jr. High play instead.

So running again, hasn’t really been my thing.  Life, though, is a lot of running.  Luke talks about running the race in ACTS 20:24.

Thinking about it, I don’t know if I’m running the race as I should be.  I try my best to do what God says and follow His leading, even in the little things.  In fact, it’s the little things that I fail in, I think.  I let myself and my human limitations get in the way too much.  I often think ‘I can’t do  that,” or “That scares me a little so I’m not going to do that,” if I’m honest.  When it comes to following God to move for school, or to a different job, or even who to marry, it was a no brainer, but in the little things I fail… way too often.  There’s a lot of blessings in life I missed out on because I was too afraid to try them.

Though, at the end of the day, I hope God knows that my heart is sincere and I really want to do the right thing.  I want to run the race God has set out for me to the best of my ability.  I’m just grateful that when I DO mess up God is gracious enough to forgive and redirect me.
