Jesus and the road...
Sunday, what a beautiful day that was. The weather. The sunshine.
*Have you ever had that kind of a day, when every where you turn it seems like the world is against you? Like you can't do anything right, and everyone just says the wrong thing, some mean to...some don't even know. But, regardless, it's enough to just get you in a bad mood?!
Well, before even noon...that was the kind of day I was having. Scott was so funny....he recognized it quickly...and just let me "do my thing".
So, I put my tennis shoes and my praise music on...and I hit the road. Literally.
Mile after mile, I listened, it sunk in. Every song. Every shuffle.
Jesus is the only one that won't let me down. He won't be mean to me. He won't do anything to make a bad day worse. He just won't.
The road is always constant. It is right there, under my feet, every single time I step out.
So, at about mile 4...Scott brought me a bottle of water...so sweet. But, I thought then, even him. It's NOT fair to put that kind of pressure on him. He is going to let me down, just like I let him down..but he is there for me, to lift me up when I need him. But, he is human.
I guess the crazy part is, 10 miles later...I was still running. And thankful!
But, back to Jesus and the road.
And the best part is, I can have them both at the same time!
So, next time you see me running, hand in the air...I am probably not waving....but praising Him...for He is good.
