Oh I love it!

Whenever the world seems to be flipping upside down, or things just aren't going my way, the Lord ALWAYS reminds me of His grace. Whether it be through people, verses or events.

Yesterday, someone read this verse at church and it about put me on the floor.

Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version, ©2011)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

This is one of my memory verses, so it wasn't like I haven't heard it before, but man oh man did it bring a smile to my face and tears in my eyes. I know the road that Jesus has designed for me, is one that is good. Plain and simple. Now notice I didn't say without trials and hard times, but I said good. Good in the most eternal sense.

One a running note: on Saturday I had 7 miles on the schedule with the middle 20 minutes at half marathon pace. For some DUMB reason I thought I should do it on the treadmill. DUMB DUMB DUMB! As I was running, the rain cleared and sun was shining into the gym windows for 55 of my 65 minute run. UGH! Oh well. Lesson learned....just run outside. :)

  1. I hate it when that happens...or the other way when you decide to run outside because the weather should be good...and then it pours.
