RUN!!!

Run the race with endurance.

Run using perseverance. 

Strive to finish.  Move forward. 

Push it! Run!  Go, go, go!

That kind of talk makes me laugh. 

 Seriously, LOL!  

I’m not trying to disrespect any of you runners out there. I commend you. I bow to your cardio awesomeness. Do not get me wrong here at all, I do like to be active. I enjoy a brisk walk and the occasional Zumba for major laughs and to be reminded of uncontrollable bladder issues. I feel better when I’m doing a workout every morning.  So, I recognize the need for a body which is not at a constant rest, but I do not see the need for speed.  I have never done a mile in less than 17 minutes and I am good with that. I’m sure that time made some of you LOL! Go ahead, laugh at my snail-ness. It’s all good. I have other talents you don’t. I take confidence in knowing that. Haha!

In the Bible it says that we are to RUN with endurance the race…  I believe, Biblically, I’m running.  As it says in Hebrews, I’m throwing those things off that slow me down. I’m doing my best at speeding by and looking passed the things that trip me up. 

I may be physically slow, but thanks to Jesus, I can be the best “runner” in the world and do it while “light as a feather,” because HE has taken my heavy sins and burdens. He took them from me!  He allowed me to be able to move forward, walk on and even RUN with endurance.  Thank You Jesus for giving me the gift of grace which allows me to do that!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. -Heb 12:1

 A few funnies…  
 

And definitely NEVER run with scissors!

I AM A SUCCESS!

Because I’m overweight…am I supposed to feel INADEQUATE?  ..am I supposed to feel incapable?  ..am I supposed to feel unloved? ..am I supposed to feel not-good-enough? …am I UNSUCCESSFUL?

NO NO NO NO and NO!!!

Yes, I’m overweight.  I’m not the “perfect” size.  I do not wear bikinis.  HAHA!  Never have, never will.  I do not run.  Another HAHA!

I may not be able to outrun someone, but I can do so much that others don’t do, want to do or have the talent to do.

Society may look at me and think, “Wow, she probably eats a lot of donuts.”  When in actuality, I HATE DONUTS.  Ice cream is not something I long for.  I don’t really like pie.  Chocolate, yes, but …

OK, WHAT I’M SAYING IS:  Society does not KNOW me.  They don’t know my likes, dislikes, talents, struggles, victories, etc.  I do not care what SOCIETY thinks.  They can put me in this group of sad people which need to be “fixed” or guided.  Still, they do not know me. Whatever label, group or stereotype I get associated with… It does not define who I am.

I am a strong, smart, beautiful and very much talented person.  I encourage and help others.  I have a great smile!  I keep a positive attitude that I believe this world needs more of.  I get whatever job needs to be done–done.  I shine the light of Jesus, because He is in my heart!  I am NOT UNSUCCESSFUL.

The scales don’t own me.  The number of pounds my body is does not dictate my life.  The fact that I don’t run does not mean I can’t be a winner.  I can and will do things that are extraordinary and awesome.  I will be victorious and overcome things in this life.  The fact that I don’t lose one pound doing it has NO BEARING ON MY ABILITY TO SUCCEED.

MY Success is not measured by society even though society may think it does.  Success is what I believe it to be in my life.

Here are the top reasons why I KNOW I’m successful—

JESUS LOVES ME and I LOVE JESUS!  So glad I succeeded in asking HIM into my heart.  …SUCCESS!

I have read the ENTIRE BIBLE…SUCCESSSSSSSSSS!!!

I am a pretty good mom, wife and teacher…SUCCESS!  (I have papers to prove it which include personal reference letters, anniversary cards and a few teachery awards from various individuals and groups)

I have friends who love me.  (again, papers, emails, text messages and memories to prove it)…SUCCESS!

I’m happy.  …SUCCESS!

and guess what…

I walked 40 minutes on the treadmill this morning and quite briskly, might I add.   I didn’t run, but to me, I was a success on that mill!  I find my success in all kinds of places.  Perhaps losing weight may be one of those someday.  I have found it in the past and may in the future, but no matter what… it is not the only thing that defines my success.

I AM A SUCCESS!

–and YOU ARE TOO!  Find your successes…do not dwell on your failures.  God will guide you in finding them when you need help looking.  Do it!  FOCUS ON THE GOOD, always.
