I can not begin to tell you how many times God has shown up in amazing ways. I truly do not know why I am amazed because…He is God! He loves us! He wants to provide in big ways!
He does so many times and we don’t catch it. I like to call these Godincidences not coincidences. He is in every detail of our lives. Every detail! He loves us so much!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:13-14
He wants us to see and feel Him show up. We need to be close to Him…close proximity to Him allows us to shine for Him!
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Psalm 36:9
So, back to the Godincidences…short version: My running led me to the Run for God Bible study. Leading this Bible study was a true blessing! I have met amazing people and grown closer in my walk/run with Him because I now have a new running focus – Him! He gave me the desire and talent to run…soI now I use it for Him. Through this RFG journey I have met people at races and on Facebook that are brothers and sisters in Christ. The family continues to grow.
As I was training for the marathon, I read a post on the RFG Facebook page. It was from a blogger in North Carolina. I read his blog and God showed up. It was a Godincidence. God spoke to me as I read the blog. I commented on the blogger’s post and then he made some very encouraging comments on this blog. All this to say: God showed up again. God is SOOOO good.
Check out David’s comment and then go to his blog:
[ First off, very awesome. Your time really is incredible given the time off between distances and the abbreviated training cycle. An effort that very few ever achieve.
As to the overall experience, what a great testimony to others in your post-race attitude. The goals are important and I believe God gives us the passion to use our gifts to the fullest and glorify Him through that. But it is His journey for us, not our journey for Him. In fact, I go back to your use of the word Godincindence. I wrote the following blog entry earlier today before ever checking in your results.
You might find it timely as the Boston door appears to have closed for this week, keep moving as Paul did, and the next bigger, better door will open at the right time.
Thanks for sharing. I know you all had a great time and have great memories to bring back home.
Keep running with horses! ]
As you can see God shows up in every detail!
Godincidence – Romans 8:28 in action! And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
God’s journey continues. I will follow and praise Him running along the way! The bigger, better door or mailbox awaits!
