"You, O Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me; Your loving kindness and Your truth will continually preserve me."
During the race of life we all come up against hurdles to jump. Some we get over with ease, but we all encounter those that take us down occasionally. Then we must decide whether to do what it takes to continue or to drop out, and sit on the sidelines of life for fear of another hurdle.
If I was alone in my race, I must confess I would have given up multiple times in life, but I am not alone. Often times I may feel alone, but reality is I cannot be alone, because of the Holy Spirit living inside me.
Saturday, June 2nd, during the Marine Corp Mud Run, while jumping an extremely muddy creek, my front foot sank into six inches of mud upon landing, and the rest of my body continued forward with great force snapping my tibia, which is the second largest bone in the body. Pulled my foot out of the mud with great effort, and tried standing, but knew immediately the race was over for me.
I would never make it during these times apart from the presence of God inside me. I feel His compassion and loving kindness as I cling to the truth of His promises. I see Him and feel Him through my children’s love and my wonderful clients and friends. Life isn’t always easy. but I know as I continually look to my God with great expectations He will enable me to finish the race He has laid before me. He wants to do the same for you this morning.
In His love.
How wonderful to be surrounded by my four children during this challenging time! We are His hands and feet.
