A-ster and I ran in a halloween 5K this Saturday. I think that a race is the best date for a Saturday night.. Don’t you agree? I finished 2nd in my age group with a time of 26:37. I was faster last weekend, but this course had some major hills, and zombies in the road ;). Here is a little before picture action..
Besides running, I wanted to talk about another topic today..Happiness!
Lately I’ve been reflecting on my life and the blessings that I have received this past year. We bought a cute little house that I love, I married the man of my dreams and I have been able to recover from an illness. However, every once in a while I still feel a sense of gloom looming over me. These feeling usually come on when I think about how I am not quite doing what I love with my life. I have always dreamed that I would use my love for health and fitness to help people in some way. However, I haven’t seemed to pursue that path quite yet.
I know that God put me in my current position for a reason. Even though it’s not easy, I know he is with me through it, and that better things will come out of it. I just try to remember that God does not look at stress or problems the way we do. With the stress and trouble that we face, he has a plan. Just read Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Another scripture I have to remember to call upon is..
Philippians 4:6,7- do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
So for now, I will continue to trust in the lords plans for me. I will cast my stress and worry on him.
