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!”
