"Oh how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you.....right here in your presence, knowing you are God, here in this very moment ,is where I want to be and oh, how I long to be with you how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you...." - Amber Lawson
ok. I did 8!! Yeah!! It was a weird 8 but it was 8 !!
I walked the first mile with my friend Rachal, she's new to all this. After the second mile I stopped to stretch out my calves they were totally knotting up in pain, then I felt like a perfect runner! My body felt really good. But what is interesting is this song kept playing in my spirit and I didn't even realize it. I was totally focused on my body. I didn't want to push anything. Then out of nowhere I realized my spirit was singing. This is mile #3 and so I began to listen and then started (in my mind) singing the rest of it because I only hear the first part for miles. It said, "oh how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you, how I long to be with you.....(then after relizing something special was happening I finished out the second part) ....right here in Your presence, knowing You are God, here in this very moment is where I want to be and oh how I long to be with You, how I long to be with You how I long to be with You...." its real pretty music and slow and we sing it in church and we sang it Sunday. I didn't think of that song at all since Sunday. Do you know I heard that off and on for the rest of the six miles and I felt like I was carried like a breeze it totally didn't feel like I was running 8 miles, more like 3. So, I've thought about it through out the day. What if it was like God singing to me? Cuz all I heard for miles was the first part.
I just felt today was almost not real, I kept questioning...did I really run 8 miles?? I was out there for 2 hours....I love today. But once again, as soon as I stopped my legs started hurting really bad so I'm not going to run tomorrow. Not sure what it is but running is too important for me to be sitting out because I over pushed myself. It important because its a way where I go with God more than just communication but comunion with Him.
