I was watching the Biggest Loser from last night and it was ‘marathon’ day! I have to tell you that there are not any words that I can use to tell you how much I want to run a marathon!
It was only two years ago that I couldn’t run a mile. I could not finish running one mile. I realize that many people say that. I can say that I have run 10 without stopping, and I have completed a half marathon. I didn’t run the whole thing, but I completed it.
I got cleared from my boot yesterday. First thing the doc said was ‘no running, yet’.
There are many things in my life that I thought I could never do. I want to run a marathon. Not only do I want to run a marathon, I want to raise money for orphans. I want my life to count for something. Not anything about me, but I want my life to be about something much bigger than me!
I’m celebrating that I no longer have a boot, but I am also celebrating that I am one step closer to finishing a marathon.
Phil 3:13-14 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
