Scripture: Psalm 13

This is one of my favorite Psalms. I love it because it seems so full of despair and sorrow, but then at the end it turns a corner and hope is renewed.

1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

How many times have I done this myself? Wallowed in my self-pity and focused on the doom and gloom, just to realize I’m wasting my time and losing my focus. Turning my eyes back to Jesus is the only answer.

Journal: Write a prayer turning your focus back to the Lord and be thankful for how he’s “dealt bountifully” with you.

Move: Run. 3-5 miles for regular runners.

{Beginner’s run #4: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 3 minutes/walk 1 minute x5, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}

Praise the Lord, and keep showing up.
