Dogged determination to trust Him or...stop fighting and Just say Yes

Running this week has been a metaphor for trusting God and pushing ahead. Monday's run was hard. Today's run almost didn't get off the ground, but I honored the commitment I made to myself and pushed through anyway. It was a good thing.

There is a beauty to discipline that I am coming to appreciate. Even as it got difficult, I choose to keep going, albeit slowly, focusing upon finishing the race…a lesson I know well.

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 (NIV)

I smiled as I realized it was finished, and that I had endured. Once more, Yolanda Adams words carried me “Through the Storm.”

The storms of life will blow
They're sure to come and go
They meet us all at a time
When I'm calm and doing fine
But the Captain of my soul
He's always on board
He rocks me in His arms
While riding through the storm
While riding through the storm
Jesus holds me in His arms
I am not afraid
Of the stormy winds and the waves
Though the tides become high
He holds me while I ride
I find safety in the Master’s arms
While riding through the storm
I have no fear of the raging seas
Knowing Jesus will forever be right here with me
He can speak to the wind to my enemies and to the waves
And he makes them all behave
All power's in the Master's hand
When I'm on sea or dry land
I found safety in the Master's holding arms
While riding through the storm
 While through the storm
Jesus holds me in his precious arms
 I'm not afraid of the stormy wind
