Scripture as a Mantra

For times when I need to dig down deep and find that mental boost, or when I feel my energy is low and I need a renewal of strength, I find this passage from Isaiah 40:31 to be a perfect mental charge.

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

  1. YES!

    One of my life verses: Isaiah 50:7 –
    “7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.” (NIV)

    The imagery of a “face like flint” is so powerful. The fact that it’s part of the prophecy of Christ makes it even more potent. Hard core!

  3. I often turn to Romans 5:3 – 4 –

    “3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,”

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
