TBR Dream Marathon: Day 4

Since it’s Ash Wednesday today, I wholeheartedly did fasting and abstinence as required by the Catholic Church. In fact, I was looking forward to it since I wanted to please the Lord in whatever way I can. I ate light breakfast and snacks, and was really planning my full meal for dinner. But then this afternoon on the way home, I started to feel my body getting weak and I was sweating cold. I was having hypoglycemia attack. I frantically searched for a candy in my bag but didn’t find any. Good thing I was able to drive myself to the nearest convenient store to grab some sweets.
Of course this set the stress button on again. I kept thinking, how can you survive a 42 km run when your body is acting like this? I was asking myself, are you sure you can handle it? It took a while for me to realize that it was fear and self-doubt talking. Of course I will finish the race, I have a good nutritional plan before and during the race day. And no doubt about it, I can handle it because I have trained my body for this rigorous activity for months. I am healthy, I am strong, and I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.

TBR Dream Marathon: Day 3

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” ( 2 Corinthians 12:9)
How can I ever doubt if I can accomplish everything that the Lord set before me when He has already ensured my victory even before he birthed the dream inside me. When He promised a life made victorious on the cross, He wasn’t joking. He is faithful to His Word. As long as I do my part and place my complete trust in Him even if the task seem impossible, He will make it happen. He will bring my goal, my hopes and my dream to fruition.
