Hello friends! I know most of you think I have probably given up on blogging. I haven’t given up on it, but I am at a point right now where it’s not possible for me to have a set blogging schedule, so I will just blog when I can. I totally understand that this makes it hard to keep readers and will not help make my blog more popular, but that’s okay. Blogging isn’t my job, it’s just something I enjoy.
I have taken less pictures, shared less on social media and this blog (obviously), but our lives are pretty busy all the time now, so the little bit of time I have at home to relax with Ryan, I like to take advantage of it.
When I first started this blog, I wanted to make sure that I shared about my faith because it should be the whole purpose of my life. The last few months the Lord has really been showering me with His grace, and showing me that His love truly has no limits.
Sometimes Satan likes to really try to confuse me. He brings up the past sin in my life that I wish would go away. He reminds me of those times I messed up. He tries to make me feel like a failure as a Christian, and makes me wonder how unhappy God must be with me right now.
Then I am reminded that God’s love is greater than my sin. Then I am reminded that Jesus died for me while I was still a sinner. I am reminded that His death was enough to save me. I am reminded that he conquered death and sin and rose from the grave! I am reminded that yes I am weak and incompetent, but that is why Jesus lives with me. Because He gives me strength and power to do whatever His will is for me.
Every sin is an opportunity to turn back to Jesus, and let that sin become part of your story, and maybe, just maybe, you can help someone else who is struggling with the same sin you dealt with.
So why am I saying so much about grace?
Because I am willing to bet that a lot of you out there struggle with the same thing. Guilt and shame follow you from your past, but I am here to tell you to let it go. God has so much grace for you; just RUN to Him! But don’t just walk or jog to Him, SPRINT to Him! See what all He has in store for your life once you let your past go! Run so fast to the Lord that your heart races and you start breathing fast!! His plan is greater, much greater, than anything you could imagine!
So right now, I am working on speed, literally, because I am trying to get faster and lower my half marathon and marathon speed. But I am also trying to sprint to Jesus and grow closer to Him. I am really trying to spend more time reading my Bible and praying, and I am hoping to get better at memorizing scripture to have on hand at any moment.
So for my fitness lovers, sorry there is nothing about fitness in this post, but if this is what just one person needed to read, then it was worth it. Because you all know I absolutely love fitness, but I also have to remember 1 Timothy 4:8
