One of Those days!

This is one of those days that I really don't want to get out and run. I know - I love running but today I don't want to. It's been a long weekend with very little sleep. My whole body is hurting and aching - I guess it's the cold weather.

Oh I will run though! I have a goal in mind and it is only getting closer and cannot be changed to accommodate my weakness! May 1 is coming whether or not I am ready.So I will run - towards my goal. That is my running motivation for the day.

I plan on doing an easy loosen me up type of run today. I have to preserve my knee for the 10 miler I am planning later in the week. Plus I want to run at least 4 days and I do not like disappointing myself! I also didn't run over the weekend and I don't like to go more than 2 days in between runs. I'll run!

I am so glad that God did not give up on us before He reached His goal. Jesus came and completed the work the Father gave Him to do. I am sure He faced exhaustion, dealt with cranky people and just wanted to go home too! But He completed it.

And even past that He won't give up on the work He started on you and me either! Philippians 1:6 says:

For I am confident of this very thing,
that He who began a good work in you
will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Just like I am determined to make my goals - He is determined to make His and part of that is the perfecting, maturing, of the saints. He will not give up on us! He's running toward His goals too! There's peace in that for me - and motivation to run one more day!
