A Note From Dad

I Am New

Afterthought to my 4/30 My April Run Journal entry…

I have NO DOUBT that I will receive that strength from above in God’s timing for His glory!  Literally, as soon as I finished writing that entry, I was reminded of this when the song “I Am New” came on my iPod.

“Who I thought I was and who I thought I had to be, I had I give them both up because neither were willing to ever believe.  I am not who I was.  I’m being remade.  I am new.  I’m chosen and holy and I’m dearly loved.  I am new.  Too long have I lived in the shadows of shame believing that there was no way I could change.  But the One who is making everything new doesn’t see me the way that I do.”

I’m done making excuses for who I am and how I run.  I run slow.  I’m overweight and not in as good of health as I want to be.  I run slow.  I can run farther, longer and faster now than I could a year ago.  I can run farther and longer now than I ever thought I could.  The double digit miles I log weekly pale in comparison to what my naysayers do.  I’m done making excuses for who I am and how I run.  “This is who I am now.  I’m being remade.  I Am New!”
