I heard a young preacher today talk about how easy it is to trust during good times, but real trust comes in times when we have no control.
I feel like such a hypocrite raising my hands and saying "yes Lord, I trust you" then finding myself running to the internet to seek out doctors, blogs, and research to try to do what I can do to save David.
The harsh findings all pointing to answers I'm not yet willing to accept.
I stared at the wall in front of me in silence. God heard my silence. Then I felt the Holy Spirit running next to me in his green adidas track jacket.
During lap 5 he tackled me, we wrestled on the ground for a bit, then I gave in. My tense body exhaled, I closed my eyes and felt at peace.
He winked at me and jogged away.
I got up, dusted myself off, and now I'm ready to run again.
Thank you Lord for this moment.
And thank you U.S. Presidents for that great sale on the treadmill.
