Years ago, I was on Wheel of Fortune. It was on that show that I said I wanted to qualify for the Boston one day. I never believed it would or could be a reality. I was also on there to solve my money woes. I was working 3 jobs at the time and barely making ends meet. I just knew I would win and win big. Well, I was wrong. I lost and lost big. So, those hopes were dashed! That did not become a reality and I didn’t think the Boston would either.
But, God had other plans. He used that day to show me that I was trying to fix my money problems the world’s way and not my own. He spoke to me through a sermon the day after WoF and showed me I needed His financial freedom…not my own. At that point I started a new journey financially…one to please Him. I can finally say, as of April 20, 2011 I am credit card debt free. Wow!!! He helped me get here…provided extra jobs, extra desire, hard work and it all paid off literally.
Why am I saying this here on my road to Boston? B/c on that day, I tried the world’s way and it didn’t work..but God’s did. So, as I train for the Boston I am going to do the same. He is my ultimate coach. He will give me strength to run when I don’t have it. I will worship as I run and please Him.
This journey will be different. I now believe I can do it. Romans 8.28 -ALL things work together for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. He called me to live right financially and I am finally there. He has called me to run and run for Him…I am there!
Off to Boston I go.
This week’s training has been good. The 30 minute runs easy. The hour run not so much. I was tired and ready to be done in 20…but I persevered and made it through. Yay! Thank you Lord. 30 today and off tomorrow…I can handle that. 90 minutes on Saturday after the miracle mile. One week almost down…wow!!! 2 weeks from mini…feeling good.
