Of course much of my distraction has been with school. For those that do not know, I am obtaining a Masters degree in human nutrition. Classes are becoming more and more demanding. In addition, to school I am still working full-time and writing food reviews for a local magazine-which is very fun! I have also been suffering from runners knee. This has caused a great deal of aggravation and depression. I promise to share more about my recovery soon. Fortunately, I was feeling strong enough to run my second half marathon with Ashley over at Wannabe Green. I am proud to report no injury, just the normal aches.
Much like a marathon, life is moving too fast for me and I often feel I can't keep up. My point behind this post to send some motivation and encouragement your way. I honestly didn't think I could get through this past week without some kind of failure. Whether it be the race, school, work I knew something was going to go wrong. I'll let you in on a little secret...My biggest fear is failure. I listened to a great sermon the other day that addressed fear. I highly recommend you listen if you share this fear.
Nothing but the Good Lord has been keeping me moving. Not just physically moving but emotionally. Each day the Devil sets out to ruin me, distract me, and lure me into no good. But, through the power of prayer and wonderful friends who lift up my name in prayer, I stand stronger than ever. If you are battling something right now, small or big, remember you are a child of God and He shall provide for you in your time of need. May God BLESS your Monday!
