Day 10 was funny!
For the 5th time in my working out thus far I have jogged 1 mile. Today felt good as I came out the gate. I ran with grace!
Suddenly, I was greeted by a group of teens & their ringleader taunting me as I ran. She started running in motion while laughing at me.
And I did something unexpected…
I looked directly at her for maybe 2-3 seconds & gave her the most pleasant yet serious look known to man. Her smirk slowly melted off her face.
When you are that serious about something and are in the moment of doing it, you could careless what people have to say. I kept it moving without 1 discouraging thought.
In fact, I ran my fastest time ever of 11 minutes & 37 seconds.
When homegirl mocked me, it reminded me of our lives as Christians. When you “run” for the Lord, some won’t understand it and will talk about you & poke fun of you for following Jesus. When they do that, you gotta keep it moving b/c think about it; they caught a glimpse of your Light, didn’t they?
Acts 17:32 (King James Version)
32And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.
