"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

Losing your center of Balance.

I walked out unto the track at the gym with one thought on my mind: RUN it DOWN!

"The Mothership" was calling my name. Sweat was right around the curve of the track and I was accepting the invitation.
As I molded my legs to the track I could feel the two of us meshing. With each lap around my shoulders began to relax and the weight of the world slowly began to release it grips on me.
The faster my legs went the clearer life began to look. All the things that seemed important were now put in perspective and now appeared minimal.
I felt that release...There was nothing I could do to stop the salty droplets that rolled down my cheeks but to thank God.  It was like a purging. I welcomed it. Running is so thereputic. There is no drug, no prescription, no therapist or mood altering stimulant that could make me feel so good.

The Mothership: 7 miles
08:04 pace 800M Repeats with 1 mile easy run in between

Run 2 Husky RR
I thought this run was going to be 3 miles...I thought wrong. We actually did 5 miles. And it was a hill run! This run was GREAT. So good that I am not sure how my body is going to feel about the 20 miles I have it scheduled to perform tomorrow!
Pace: 8:12
Distance 5.12

Joshua 1:9 "Be strong and of Good Courage: Be not Afraid neither be Dismayed: For the Lord thy God is with thee wherever thou goest."

Today we all have to deal with Life on Life's terms'.  It is not always easy. Life is not perfected with practice. You can not always prepare for what comes knocking on the door. BUT you can be equipped to deal with it easier. Just like running I have to prepare my body for the race. With the Boston Marathon right around the corner for me I have spent weeks training for a successful race. I could not have just RAN it with No Training and been successful. Life is the same. For me to be equipped for the day I have to seek God early. I need HIM to prepare me for whatever comes my way. 
There are many days my "Rythym"  is off. Lately it is emotionally. It is as though I have no proper balance like I have lost my CENTER...Like a Hula Hoop. 
I am reminded it is better to put my Trust in the Lord and Make Him My Center than to put my confidence in the world or myself where there is no proper Balance.

How is Your Balance? Do you feel like a Hula Hoop losing your Center of balance?
