When I signed up for the half marathon my first thought, ok, maybe my tenth thought after “ohmyword, what have I just done” was “I think I want to do a full marathon” which seems insane, especially since it’s a really long way.
Last year I got a stress fracture, maybe from training, maybe from something else, I don’t know. It was doing ok, I guess kind of healed, and then lately, it’s been really hurting. On Good Friday I had it propped up any which way I could. And yesterday, it was pretty much hurting all day. Even in the middle of the night I woke up with it hurting… and this morning, pain. Ugh :/ MY plan was to do the full marathon this year, to raise money for 4-more.org however, I don’t think that’s God’s plan for me. At least not this year.
I do have a lot going on this year. Haiti, Detroit, El Salvador. Maybe that’s just not in the picture this year. I am not sure. I’m going to be still and wait. Listen and then go, in whatever direction that is. I’m letting go of what I want… and doing what God has planned.
This is not always an easy thing, ok, let's face it, it's never easy, because I can kind of be a... control freak... but giving up control to the One who loves us, who really is in control, is refreshing! It brings me joy!
Rest assured, I will be resting my foot, AND going to the doctor. In the mean time, I will be praying for healing on my foot. Please join me.
