Day 18

"I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely."  Psalm 63:8

The alarm clock rang at the usual time this morning, 4:20 a.m.

"I got nothing," I said to myself.

Through a tornado of circumstance, I found myself up past 1:00 a.m.  I knew I had to be at work by 6:00 a.m. and didn't want to medicate with too much caffeine, either.  The gentle whisper of God seemed to quietly say to my heart, "You've got me."

I smiled to myself as I headed downstairs for the banana nut chocolate chip muffin and milk.  I read about Hezekiah in 2 Kings, and that encouraged me, too.  It was time to give the day to God.

The day went great, and I had plenty of energy.  I'm learning I don't need to eat as much when I'm running because I'm not all that hungry.  The run this afternoon went well, too.  I didn't make it all the way around a third time, but I'm on my way.

I hope and pray your run is going well, wherever you find yourself on life's road.

Send me a note.  I'll be praying for you.
