Things to think about. (Rundown #5)

Um, soo....I've been kinda checking out my own blog and I've come to realize/understand some things.

I think most of the stuff I've been posting are what I call "Superficial and Homosexual." Not the stuff about God, or even my running, I just don't think I've been genuine with my blogging. So time to start over.

Philippians 3:10 says "That I may know Him and the power of His ressurrection and the fellowship of sharing with Him in His sufferings becoming like Him in His death."

Now this really applies to me spiritually in terms with where I am, and How passionate I am to know Him, to really know Him. I do, I want to have the fellowship of sharing with His sufferings becoming like Him in His death.

What this means to me: I want to know Jesus fully, and if it causes me to suffer the way He did, ya know, where he was beaten, bloodied, and bruised for me. Or even if it causes me to die the way He did. I'm really thirsty for what He has in store for me, and if this is part of the plan, then I embrace it.

Just a few verses down in Philippians 3:13, Paul says "But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining on what is ahead. 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenard in Christ Jesus."

What this means to me:
I really struggle with forgetting whats behind. Too many regrets, sins, and other crap. It's hard to forget. But if I want to move forward in my personal journey with Jesus...It's vital that i do this, Forget what's in the past, Paul says, and focus on what the future holds and what God has in store.

Other things that have been speaking to me...Ecclesiates. The whole book really speaks clearly to me. Everything in this world is Vanity, Or striving after the wind. And when it's all said and done, To fear the Lord, is what I should spend my time doing, instead of whining about why i don't have an iPhone or something.

As far as Running concerned, My next race is this Saturday. "The Midsummer Night's Run", It will be fun, I'm really pumped for it. I have no idea if the training I've done for it will pay off...But something over the past few weeks has really taught me to be content. I've won trophy's and other awards...broken my own records. It would be cool to PR, but if I don't, life will be just fine.

But only because "It is Well."

Rundown over.

God Bless,
