"I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along." Psalm 40:1-2
During one of my work days, I had the opportunity to encourage a small child. Gave her something to smile about. And that I'm trying to remind myself is worth it all. Like a sweet friend told me, after I had a bout of whining about my "messy" home and child's less than steller school performance, "the house will get cleaned and your child will learn how to spell just fine"
Thank God for sweet friends who know how to encourage!
And I try to remember...by digging my own little "poor me" hole, I'm forgetting to bless others. I wonder sometimes what God is thinking when I fall into my poor me trap... well there she goes again! Forgetting all her many blessings!
Here is one of the BEST reasons to run, STRESS RELIEF!!! It's like running away temporarily. Time to clear your mind and send some serious prays up.
I was only able to fit two runs, one of which was pitifull due to blood drawn <idiot me> but at least I got out there and put some miles in!
|Remember our eternal blessings rather than dwell on our temporary short-comings|
