Shine down on me…

Last week while I was still in recovery mode from the marathon I was listening to our local Moody Radio. Rebecca St. James was being interviewed. During the radio broadcast her song, Shine Your Glory Down was played. As you see below the first line is…WHEN I RUN, LEAD ME! Boy, did God speak. As I continued to listen to the song, it ministered to me in a way I didn’t expect. It spoke to my heart. WITH EACH BREATH, FILL ME; WITH EACH STEP, FREE ME…this is my prayer. I want God to truly shine down on me…during my run and during my daily walk with Him. I want Him to shine through me!

My running is a form of praise to Him. I praise Him for my talent. I praise Him for His glorious earth. I praise Him for time alone with Him on my feet.

So, now I am in my next phase of training. Recovery is over. 🙂
Run 3 of 6 is in the books for this week. I feel great! I have run in 3 different places with awesome views and with a great friend. I have run in the rain along side cow pastures; I have run in the shade along the TN River. I have run up and down rolling hills while memorizing Ephesians 4:2-3 to take may mind off of the pain. :o)

Ephesians 4.2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

My theme song for this phase is the one mentioned above and listed below. God’s Word that will lead me through this phase is the one mentioned in an earlier post: Habakkuk 3.17-19

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

I am that fig tree that did not bud June 4; the olive crop that failed to produce food…but I will rejoice in my God and Savior and let Him shine down on me and through me as I allow Him to be my strength through this next phase of training. He will make my feet like that of the deer and enable me to go to new heights. (I have 10 weeks vs. 7 weeks to train this go around…we will do it! (God willing…:))

Continuing the journey and Running blessed for HIM!

Shine Your Glory Down song – Rebecca St. James

When I run, lead me
When I sleep, keep me
When I wake Father speak with me
Oh Majesty

Light of the world,
Light up this day
God I long to see your face
Oh shine your glory down
Light of the world
Be on display
And every heart will sing your praise
Oh shine your glory down

With each breath fill me
With each step free me
When I love Father love through me
Oh Majesty

Light of the world,
Light up this day
God I long to see your face
Oh shine your glory down
Light of the world
Be on display
And every heart will sing your praise
Oh shine your glory down

I do not walk in darkness
I will not live in fear
I’ll walk in Your light

Light of the world,
Light up this day
God I long to see your face
Oh shine your glory down
Light of the world
Be on display
And every heart will sing your praise
Oh shine your glory down

Light of the world
Be on display
And every heart will sing your praise
Oh shine your glory down
