Day 12 started in a way saying “be lazy…all day”
I normally wake up somewhere in the 6AM ballpark. Today I woke up at 7:30.
I had fell asleep on the couch watching ABDC & woke up sleeping on my daughter’s pink miniture pillow. My head was hurting & my body just wanted to chill.
But God reminded me that in life not to live by feelings. Feelings get you in trouble. These 2 scriptures convict me on the regular…
James 1:8 (King James Version)
8A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Proverbs 14:12 (New International Version)
12 There is a way that seems right to a man,
but in the end it leads to death.
If I’m unstable, then I’ll never reach my goal, though I’m satisfied at the moment. Though the way of laziness may seem right at the time, it’ll lead to the death of my dream (and even possibly the physical death of me if I don’t stay in shape).
So I slowly got my clothes on, stretched, pulled my iPod off the charger, grabbed my stopwatch & went for it.
As I was running, I gained inspiration. I started to notice that I was making good time. My fastest time was 11 minutes & 37 seconds. I saw my house in the distance. I looked at my stopwatch and it read 11 minutes. As “Far Away” by Lecrae played, I started running as hard as I could. However, when I crossed the finish line, it read 11 minutes and 52 seconds (16 seconds shy of beating my record).
Though I didn’t beat my record, I was fine. I was just happy that I finished the race.
Finish the race today my friends. Finish the race. And in order to finish it, you must start the race and maintain pace.
