I’m Broken…

At least that’s what I tell my husband more than once a week; probably because I feel broken quite often. For being an actively healthy 26 (almost 27) year old I seem to get hurt a lot! 

Case in point, right before a half marathon run at Disney World I feel out of my father’s truck and busted my knee and elbow (still ran it and did my best time). I’ve tripped numerous times while running in my neighborhood, kick more coffee tables than known to man, broke my arm, and severely twisted my ankle (needing to wear a boot), etc. Since these injuries seem to happen very frequently it makes me feel as though I’m broken. 

The latest incident? While playing my first soccer game this season I strained/pulled my calf muscle. It has been almost seven days since then and I’m still hobbling about! I am broken! Make matters worse? This exercise obsessed chick hasn’t worked out in 7 days on top of it. It hasn’t been too bad with the amount of work going on (missing the gym) but the weekend is a clear reminder of what I’m missing! I want to go running, I want to be outside and in the fresh air… URGH!

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord" (Psalm 150:6).

Praise gives glory to God and opens us up to a deeper union with Him. Regardless of what life throws you, praising God turns our attention off of our problems and on the nature and character of God Himself.

I can completely identify with this reason for praising God Almighty. No matter what I have going on in my life, which lately seems to be quite a bit, I always find focus when I take the time to talk to and praise God. It puts things into perspective when I’m speaking to my creator and giving thanks for all that he has done for me. He deserves a tremendous about of my admiration and worship. 

Tomorrow is Easter and it’s exceptionally important that everyone remembers who it is we need to praise and honor for our blessings. Let us not forget that we are dependent on God to live gloriously in this life. Today I will pray for my good fortunes and take a few moments to reflect on my life and my relationship with Him and others. 

Here is another great passage: "Sing to the Lord, all the earth; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; He also is to be feared above all gods" ( 1 Chron. 16:23-25).

Have a wonderful weekend!

That’s right….I’m back into the swing of things. For what feels like a very LONG week I was sick. It wasn’t a death bed sick which explains the very long feeling as I didn’t take off any time from work to recuperate; however, this weekend I took to my bedroom and caught up on the much needed rest from the week. Who knew a person could sleep so much! It’s almost been a full seven days, but I’m finally feeling like my old self. And just in the nick of time as I will be leaving for Jamaica in-count them-THREE DAYS!! Picture it, beautiful sunshine lying on the beach with drinks in hand. Can you say HEAVEN on earth! :)  I’m so excited. Anyways…more on that to come later. For now, I’ve checked in. I’m not dead and I will be posting more this week! Take care.
