We Must Be Courageous!

I will admit I was upset! I was mad, discouraged, and I had swayed from my goals. I had several things I could say made me not finish the Houston Marathon a few years ago. I got sick at mile 12 and could not recoup was the big one.  I will admit though, that day still haunts me.  I know it was in the past and I can’t go back to that day, but every time I sign up for a marathon the thoughts of what if I don’t finish come rushing into my mind!

I must confess that it was horrible to have to tell people over and over “I DID NOT FINISH”. I think I must have said those four words a thousand times in a week.  How humiliating!   I’m serious, that was so hard for me to deal with. Part of me was telling myself that I was such a baby, or maybe I’m in the wrong profession. How can I help people reach their goals when I can’t even help myself reach mine.

And then…. I went to Bible Study and the above verse was the focus. Really!?!  Really?! {I love the analogy Beth Moore used} She said that it’s like playing chicken with the devil and we have to prove him to be the chicken. Hold on to that steering wheel and don’t look left. Don’t look right. Keep going straight ahead. Be courageous! I made up my mind then that I need to get back up, dust myself off and keep going.

Some of you may need to do the same. So it’s cold outside. So you were sick last week.  So you haven’t been sleeping well or your too busy! Remember choose your hard! Get up and keep going. You have a goal and don’t look left and don’t look right; instead be courageous and keep working out most days and keep eating clean.  Keep taking that one step of faith daily!

So what do you think?  Are you being COURAGEOUS?!?!?!

Have a great day and remember to SWEAT!!!!! :0)
