"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? ... So use every part of your body to give glory back to God..." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Having an obligation to do something as part of a job or role.
Being the primary cause of something and so able to be blamed or credited for it.
I woke up this morning not feeling so good. I started sneezing yesterday. This morning my throat was itchy, my head was pounding and I just wanted to put the covers back over my head.
Do you ever have those days when you just do not want to do all the things that you HAVE to do?
Today I HAD to do 17 miles. I Had to get my long run in.
But I really didn't want to. I really didn't feel like it. I really didn't feel like doing anything but crawling back in bed.
RESPONSIBILITY: There are those things in life we just have to do. We procrastinate, postpone or even make excuses to why we don't have to do them.
But when we do them..IT feels SOO good. We feel productive and responsible.
I just had to get those shoes laced up. I had to get up and get moving. 17 miles, 2 1/2 hours of running. Does that sound like something you look forward to doing?? Some of you may get all geeky about running that long. NOT ME. Especially when I am running that alone!
But I did. I got it done. I dressed up, laced up, fueled up and SUCKED IT UP!
"We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are - that is the fact."Jean-Paul Sartre
Wisdom from God guides us in health.
not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they
are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above
all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” – Proverbs 4:21-23
Be careful with FEELINGS. Feelings will steer your HEART and sink your ship! You often hear people say "Follow Your HEART". I am not a believer in that. This morning my heart wanted to stay in BED! Last week my heart wanted to trip that girl running when she cut me off around the curb. And tomorrow my heart will want me to do or say something that might not be so wise yet again.
There are things we HAVE to do regardless of what our feelings say about it.
I am so glad I ignored my feelings and did what I knew I had to do and that was get that 17 miles DONE!
Guard your Heart. Check it, protect it and connect it with His WORD.
BTW: TO THE GUY YELLING AT ME RUNNING THIS MORNING: THE ONE POINTING TO HIS HEAD AND YELLING AT ME THAT I WAS "CRAZY IN THE HEAD". ( I THINK HE WAS ANGRY BECAUSE I WAS RUNNING ON THE ROAD) Here ya GO!
FOR FUEL ON MY RUN I DID NOT USE CHOMPS- I USE JUICE PLUS AND IT WAS PERFECT. REAL NUTRITION, REAL HELPFUL WHEN YOU ARE NOT FEELING REAL GOOD.
How responsible were you today? Did you get your RUN IN??? Did you have excuses?
Let's hear about it! What is your favorite Excuse?
