Stronger Than I Thought I Was

I was thinking about my physical health, and how I feel so much better, when I eat healthy and excersie regurally. I remember my first outing after I had shed a few pounds. Sean and I went up to Lake Quinalut for a weekend and hiked some trails in the rain forest. I was amazed at how well I felt and how easy it was to keep up. Usually I would have to stop and rest several times, and beg Sean to "please slow down", but this time I could really see a differance. I has so much energy,and at times I was walking ahead of Sean.

I was thinking of my physical strength in comparison to my spiritual stength. A few weeks back I was standing at the bottom of a mountian, and I had what appeared to be a huge hill to climb. I really felt I was not "fit" enough to climb this large hill in front of me.

Well much like the hills I climbed at Lake Quinault...I am amazed at how well I am doing. This hill is not as hard as it appeared to be, and I am much stronger than I thought I was.

I know the Lord gives us the stength we need to endure what comes our way, but I believe he has given me an extra portion. Thank you all for your prayers....they have been of great help!
