Ready for a walk/run???

Hey y'all!
Lately I talk a lot on this blog about "our walk"...spiritually mostly. Well...I am so excited about the mission fundraiser idea that God has laid on my heart! We are working on organizing a 5K Fun Walk/Run for WMU! It would be an annual mission event and each year the beneficiary would change. And hopefully next year it would be a county wide WMU event! This year it will be sponsored by our church and the main project focus would be Pure Water Pure Love. It will be in October and registration will be $25 including a t shirt. Start gathering your friends, family, coworkers, etc. to form a team! The largest team will get a trophy! Once plans get finalized I'll post more details.

I do want to share the theme verse for the is the WMU theme for the next two years:
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

So here is the challenge....start training today! Walking/running/strolling...get ready to go!

  1. Kristy, I am writing in tears and laughter this morning. It's so funny how God works. You posted this a couple of days ago and now this morning as I am working thru the Patriarch's study on my own and reading a book "So You Don't Wanna Go to Church Anymore? God has hit me squarely on the head and I am right back at your post and your verse listed above. Fresh from the Patriarchs this morning is the scripture Gen 18:14- Is anything too hard for the Lord (NO). Then to my book which tells me about Eve in the garden and the only reason she ate the apple was to be like GOD - Isn't that what I wanna do? Be Like HIM? And like Eve, I am trying to help God make me like HIM, like it is too hard for Him to do. Like HE needs help. - silly, silly me. So I've gotta quit helping HIM, fix my eyes on HIM and only on HIM and he will do the rest. This applies to my spiritual life, physicial life, to all of me. I gotta quit trying to do it myself and just follow HIM. - So guess what my next scripture verse is on July 1st? I need HIM to take over every area of my life - I know that takes a willing heart and a sacrificial spirit. It's easy to sing those word but a whole lot harder to do. I am working on it. Glad HE has patience. Giving over to HIM will be alot like training for a 5k. A lot of work, not something I can do in a day, a week or a month - but I can do it. So Count ME in GOD - for my spiritual walk/run and count me in Kristy for my physical walk/run. LOVE YA!
