I don’t care what anybody says…it’s never too early to get ready for Christmas. Haha.

God was ready for Christmas day before the beginning of time. He knew all the details and all the “surprises”. He knew it was the best gift we’d ever be given.

Immanuel = God with us.

Journal: Write a prayer to God that you never take the gift of His son’s birth for granted…even in the heat of July.

Move: Pinterest day!

And I totally do this. Haha:

Praise the Lord, and just show up.

Scripture: Isaiah 40

“Comfort, comfort…”

Not comfort in the world. Not comfort because “everything’s going to be okay.”

There’s comfort because we serve the God who controls the world, and the God who is able to make everything “okay” even when the world fades around us.

8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

His word has stood the test of time, and will continue to stand. His word has been and will be fulfilled.

John the Baptist fulfilled these prophecies in preparing the way for Jesus:

3 A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

Then Jesus fulfilled these scriptures:

Jesus is our Shepherd. God is everlasting. He is the Creator and Sustainer of life.

29 He gives power to the faint,

and to him who has no might he increases strength.

30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,

and young men shall fall exhausted;

31 but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;

they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

That’s true comfort.

Journal: Write a prayer thanking the Lord that we can trust His word.

Move: Run 2, 4, or 6 miles.

Scripture: Isaiah 25

Timeless truths, words of hope, and scriptures we can pray back to God:

1 O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

4 For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall…

Take confidence in these words!…In the Word!

Let your soul shout for joy in the Lord, because He has defeated death!

8 He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken. 9 It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

Journal: Write the words from these verses and meditate on the goodness of God.

Move: Just a nice easy run, nothing fancy.

{Beginner’s run #17: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 7 minute/walk 1 minute x3, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}

Praise the Lord, and keep showing up.
