Run and not be weary...part I

The alarm goes off and I jump to quiet it before it wakes my kids. I stumble out of bed and into my running shoes. I pull on a sweatshirt and hat and slip outside into the darkness. I tighten up against the cold and move decidedly as my body slowly warms despite the cold air filling my lungs. As my steps quicken, my eyes rise from the road and settle on the diminutive light trying to reach across the fields.

I pray gratitude for the newness and opportunities of the day; I plead for guidance and awareness; I feel His peace and clarity.

My breath runs deep and steady, clearing out the clutter of stress and indecision. Faster, harder, distancing myself from the sluggish jog. I turn up the lane with a clear head, full of energy and ready for my favorite race of all.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth
the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.~1Corinthians 9:24
