as i type this i am eating a frozen pizza. the fact that it is an organic vegetarian trader joe’s pizza makes me feel better about not cooking something healthy (and no i am so not a vegetarian, just like the veggies on the pizza) .

anyway, i’m home and eating when according to my training schedule i should be doing 45 minutes of cardio tonight. i have been so tired lately though, i know this is a much needed evening off. i thought training for marathons was hard, but the discipline and strength required for this adventure really makes marathons look like a walk in the park.

recently though, a dear uncle of mine sent me an email and wisely reminded me that He who is in me is greater than any strength i might be building while training.

ephesians 1:18-20 says, i pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. that power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms.

wow! God gives that power, the power that He used to raise Christ from the dead, to those that believe. amen! His word also says that i can do all things through Christ and His power is made perfect in my weakness. hallelujah!

so no matter how tired i might feel, no matter how weak i might seem, i will boast all the more gladly in my weakness as his power is made perfect. if i can pull this- rather, when i do pull this off, God will get all the glory, He has given me the grace, discipline and stamina, through His mighty, mighty power, to stand on that mountain top!
