One of the things that I have always enjoyed about running is that it allows me time to think. This is especially true during early morning runs on Saturday. I try and leave the house around 5:30. It is quite, very little traffic and I get to see the sun rise. Today was no exception. It was in the upper 60′s, so the temperature was not too bad even though it was a little humid.
After settling in to a comfortable pace, I started solving the world’s problems. After I had resolved everything and the world was at peace again. I started in on my world. I don’t know what it is, it is always easier to solve others’ problems than your own. I knew that would take awhile.
Got to thinking about a devotional that I read yesterday. In passing, it mentioned the Psalm 23:1, “The LORD is my Shepard, I shall not want.” I don’t know how may times I have read or heard this passage but what struck me was the second phrase….”I shall not want.” I find that comforting. With all that is going on around me, it is comforting to know that God is taking care of not only my needs but also my “wants”.
That thought made my Saturday morning 12 mile run even better.
Onward and Upward
