Scripture: Jeremiah 10

It is he who made the earth by his power, who established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding stretched out the heavens. When he utters his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain, and he brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

Jeremiah 10:12‭-‬13

Anything we put before God is an idol. The idol in America seems to be “self”. Money spent to make myself happy. Time spent to meet my goals and pursue my desires. And more extreme: Abortion is child-sacrifice on the idol of self.

We have to submit ourSELVES to God.

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Matthee 16:24-26

Journal: Write a prayer asking the Lord to show you any areas of your life you haven’t submitted to Him.

Move: Run day. Find a hill and do some hill repeats today. Just a 10 sec uphill run, 4-8 times will do the trick.

{Beginner’s run #5: Walk 5 minutes to warm-up, then run 3 minutes/walk 1 minute x4, then walk 5 minutes to cool-down.}

Praise the Lord, and just show up.

Scripture: Jeremiah 9

This chapter outlines some dark days for the nation of Israel. Their commitment to the ways of the Lord comes and goes with their mood it seems. It’s the same for most of us, even if it doesn’t seem as extreme. We get prideful and think we can make it on our own. And even if we never waiver in our deep-down faith we still have times when we lose focus or start to swerve out of our lane.

God never does. He never loses focus. His commitment to us never falters.

He is steadfast.

Boast only in the Lord.

His love, justice, and righteousness is the cure we need.

Journal: Write a prayer thanking God for His love, justice, and righteousness.

Move: Rest, repeat, recover.

{Beginner’s run #15: 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 just show up!
