My reason for participating in the Long Beach Marathon last year, was to let the devil know that I can do all things through Christ Jesus. It was the first time I'd been in a marathon. The training was awesome. I know that it was by the grace of God that got me though to the end. On the day of the marathon it was so invigorating and refreshing to see so many people cheering us on along the way. However at mile 20, I hit a stone wall. Praying and singing to God encouraged me to believe that I could finish with God at my side. I asked Him to transport me to the finish line but He saw fit to rejuvenate me at mile 23 and I was able to jog the rest of the way to the finish. The pain in my legs ceased and were strengthen again.
So here I am again. This year I am fundraising to help Grateful Hearts meet their goal and be a part of something bigger than myself. Determined to to notice to the devil that he is no longer calling the shots over my finances. This year i plan to become financially debt-free. I have tried so many times since the death of my mother and I am sick and tired of living from pay check to pay check. I am in greement with God's Word that says that I will prosper and not be a lender and not a borrower. I realize that God is my source not "the system". There is a brilliant light at the end of the tunnel and it is there by faith. Hope was restored when I saw and heard the cheering of the people along the marathon path. It was as if the cloud of witnesses in heaven were affirming that they are keeping a watchful eye on my to be victorious in the race in which God has placed me. I am determined to follow God's lead. I give Him the glory for all that He's done and is continuing to do in my life. Thank you for joining forces with me in the task of eraticating satan's hold on those that God has put in our realm to help. Ur blessed 2B a blessing!!!
