This blog recounts my fitness journey into the sport of triathlon and the gifts God has blessed me with while on it! May the movements of my life boldly proclaim that the sparks we encounter in scripture will kindle hope in our lives!

Food

Food

I can see you clearly now.

The comfort and escape you provide is temporary.
You can not provide friendship or love.
And after you're gone, the challenging beauty of my life is still here.

I long to be held.
And even when you're present,
You can't hold me.

In the quiet,
You try to tell me you'll make it all better.
But you don't.

That I deserve you.
But I know
That I was made for more.

Stop lying to me.
I refuse to believe you any more.
It is in Christ that I live and move and have my being.

When I am overwhelmed I will run into Him.
My Strong Tower.
He will hold me and provide an escape.

When I am lonely,
I will let the tears fall 
And He will wipe them away.

When I am angry,
I will yell at Him.
He can take it.

When I am overwhelmed and feel abandoned.
I will remember, He will remind me,
That I am not!

I will cling to Him with every fiber of me.
The fullness He brings.
The joy, the hope.

I will no longer accept the counterfeit moments you offer.
They are like ash in my mouth.
I know the truth.

It will set me free.
