I did not want to go on my run today. I was sitting on my living room floor doing my Bible study and procrastinating going out for my run (yeah I know it's hard to believe that I procrastinate). However, as I was finishing up my study I came across a section in my study that really encouraged me and motivated me to go out and get my run on. Acts 1:8a "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere..." You see...I'm weak. I don't have the strength to make it through each day without my Lord and Savior. I was reminded that those who believe are given power through the Holy Spirit. Do you hear how amazing that is? I then went on to 2 Timothy 1:7 where we're told, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." Well, that's all I needed to hear to be able to go on my run and make it through the rest of my day, with a smile I might add!
|Smiling because I have a new motto: 2 Timothy 1:7 |
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity,
but of power, love, and self-discipline"
Here's the breakdown from my run today. The last two miles I kept a verse in Tasha Cobbs, "Break Every Chain" it says, "There is power in the name of Jesus/To break every chain/To break every chain/To break every chain" and somehow I was given the strength to push myself a little harder. After my run I said out loud, "That was awesome"...yeah running is great but encountering God and receiving His power is greater!
