on wednesday morning i hastened to my workout which was a simple 3 mile run in my neighborhood that i had done dozens of times. but this midweek run was a tad different, i was off schedule and needed to be faster to complete the rest of my days goals.
i started my run route thinking about the next chore that i needed to do, my mind started racing- with a quickened semi panic- along with my legs---and thats not a great combination like you would think for a run, lol.
midway into running i realized i had not started my running app or my music, so instead of stopping for a few seconds to pull my phone out (because you know that would've burnt up a whole 20 seconds of my precious schedule) i kept sprinting and began to pull the app up at the same time.
very bad idea.
a very clumsy, non graceful fall ensued.
my phone went flying, headphones, sweat rag, and i could not control my legs from their cartoon like scramble towards the pavement.
that left me with some ridiculous scratches on my arms and legs--picture a 3 year old who fell off of the swing and then the jungle gym and then their bike, yep, that's me today.
Hebrews 12:1 says "to Let go of the sin that easily entangles us and to run life's marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us".
the more i let my emotions get out of control, i get further away from gods will.
that wednesday morning i had let my mind wander, i was overwhelmed as to how to accomplish all of the days tasks and that turned into worry, which caused me not pay attention. plain and simple, i did not pay attention and let fear creep in.
i poured my heart out to god after that run , asking him to lead me and bless the work of my hands that day. i shifted my care and concern to him and laid them at his feet.
i did not accomplish everything that my 3am fast paced and scatterbrained mind had wanted to, but, i did complete the rest of the days ventures with the freedom from oppressive emotions--PEACE.
