Sunday Blessings: 13.1

A different kind of blessing this Sunday.
But it is the same Jesus who gave the gift of grace to complete thirteen point one miles as the one who gives the incredible gift of eternal salvation.

...but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
(Isaiah 40:31 ESV)

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
(2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
(Hebrews 12:1-2 ESV)

Soli Deo Gloria


  1. Well said! I just read your tweet ... congratulations on this accomplishment, I take it this was your first 1/2? I'm working my way {i.e. my courage} up to doing it. So far I've been happy with 5 & 10K's, but having just made new PR's for both of those in the last month, I'm thinking I need to start seriously training for a 1/2.

    Congrats to you!! XOXO
