How many times have we said that, or thought it anyway? I know that personally I jokingly have said it many times (and maybe a few times seriously!) I sometimes have a difficult time staying vertical when I am out running (or even walking!). I've been to a few cross country meets and I am amazed at how those kids can run on those courses with the uneven ground. When I've been running on the street or sidewalks I have managed to trip and fall over my own two feet. I have had to pick myself off of the sidewalk more than once, looking around wondering if anyone saw me face-plant on the sidewalk.
So, as I run this race of life I run with full knowledge that I will screw up, I will not be perfect, I am going to make wrong decisions. But, I run with full knowledge that God will be by my side through it all, He will pick me up when I fall, He will finish His work in me!
With Hope and Faith,
