3 miles tonight

I logged 3 miles tonight on the trail behind our house. I ran it in 28:40 which is sort of slow, but I am starting somewhere. I wondered as I was running, where does endurance come from? Is it a by by-product of something inside of us of our own doing. Is it possible that God gives some people more endurance than others? I wondered that. I have always believed when it came to running that I wasn't born to run, because of my height and flat feet. I would just love to learn to run.

Running in more ways than one

I am tired of my spare tire, but I don't want to really stop eating so I need to exercise. Before my skiing accident I had been up to running 3 miles 3 days a week. I have finally got back into the groove and am running again. I ran today and I think I ran about 2.4 miles. My feet and ankles are hurting tonight but I am building up my endurance, which is a good thing. I am attempting to run one day, bike the next.

Work has been very exciting the last couple of days as I have been working in the psychiatric unit with the craziest of the crazy inmates. I find myself saying "man, that guy is a real nutcase" alot, then I chuckle and think that is what they are there for. God please continue to call the hearts of these men despite their evil acts and thoughts. Help me to be Your hands in this dark place for them, shine through me as You see fit.

This seems to be one of those days that in the past I would think because I hadn't spent much time reading the Bible or praying that God was angry with me. I am confident in the Lord's love for me and His desire to have my heart. I look forward to knowing Him deeper than I do now. I have a hunger for the things of Him. Truly my flesh wants to rule but I trust/have faith in God.
My eyes are heavy as I type, so I bid adeu.
