Place One Foot in Front of the Other

They run for the joy of crossing the finish line after staying a course that feels impossible at times. They continue to put one foot in front of the other regardless of staggering elements of opposition: weather, injury, emotional stress, blisters, insomnia, sick stomaches, monthly cycles, and the list goes on. Rain or shine, they run.

That being said, let's take another look at Psalm 119:32.

"I RUN in the path of Your commands, for You have set my heart free."

Running requires perseverance, personal care, the willingness to seek help when we need it, and commitment to healing processes that will protect us from having to hang up our running shoes.

Okay. Enough with metaphors. If you've been hurt, the path you run is one of healing. The opposition you face is not imagined. Face it. Get all the support you can, but know that ultimately, you are the one who must run and run and run to experience the joy of having your heart set free. You are not alone when you run. God is with you every step of the way, just as He is with my friend, D'Lissa . . . and me.

I'm grateful emotional healing does not require me to sit in a tub of ice!
