Day 58: To Whom Much Is Given

Today I ran on the treadmill and swam a little over 3/4 miles: a good day. This week is starting out so much better than last week and I can only hope it ends so much better also. This can be such a roller coaster but so can life. From the peaks and the dark valleys of this track I can still see; God wants me in this. This may seem a lot strange but I can't help that. I would make it more believable if I could. But, it's the truth. Believed or not, it is still the truth. I am called out to this. My own will to go on left the building a long time ago. My own determination, my own goal seeking, my own effort gave out a couple of years ago. I am old, beat up, and covered up in cares, yet I am carried on for some reason, not of my own strength. Perhaps this time the ironman will be a go. Perhaps God has me right where He wants me. "To whom much is given, much is required."

God never said the journey would be easy, but He did say that the arrival would be worthwhile.
