I want to share this with you...last night while my stomach was upset...I was visiting my porcelain friend...:) I have a Beth Moore book that I read when I visit there. the title is "Believing God." It just takes a couple of minutes to read...but it's a daily dose of how we must believe God & his word. I was praying that God would get me thru the race & give me the courage to do it. And I pulled out this book & turned to May 8th...this is what it said...
Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses
so that Christ's power may reside in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Every now & then I ask those gathered in an audience how many have gotten through something that they believed beforehand they couldn't bear. Hands never fail to raise all over the auditorium. Living through something we were sure we couldn't endure gives us a small glimpse of our inner man's immortality and is clear evidence that the "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" promise works for us, too. None of us particularly like the face-it-until-you-get-over-it approach to fear banishment, but it can certainly be effective. Yes, you can make it, God & you.
God's love & power amazes me, He gave me that scripture specifically last night. I instantly knew he was going to get me thru this race. I knew I could do it with confidence & boast about his power that resides in me. I know God love can get us thru anything...when we think we can't...He can.
My sweet hubby & I...he cheered me on at the end...:)
Cari & Selah Aberle, Dawn Hamilton, Andrea Sokol & I
Andrea & I were best friends in HS & it's been a blessing to be able to spend time with her again. She & I ran thru the finish line together...that meant a lot to me!
Anyway...that's it! Done! No more Couch Potato for me! Thanks so much for all your love & encouragement! I appreciate it! I think I might do another soon...yep!
