“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.”
Have you ever felt like you were just gliding effortlessly through a run? When your feet were light and the steps went quickly and all was right with the world?
Maybe once. But I can’t remember.
I feel more like a drunken bull in a china shop. I can never manage to run in a straight line. Have you ever seen a deer run? They’re swift and graceful. But my name isn’t Grace for a reason. About two years ago I was told I was a goofy runner from a good friend (good used lightly here) but at work yesterday I had a compliment from a customer who sees me running through town often. She says that I look “beautiful and just so fast” when I run. That absolutely made my day. Especially when I don’t feel that way. ESPECIALLY during the winter time when I feel extra “fluffy” and not as motivated. So there…so called friend of mine. I’m no longer a “goofy” runner. But I’m beautiful and fast. According to my new favorite customer.
So this is my prayer today. That God would strengthen me and make my feet like a deer.
**So what about you? How do you feel you look most of the time when running?**
Ps- how do you like my art skills with my little bull running? Ha!
