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,”

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
