One day I’ll be able to share the entire testimony of how our friendship began… until then here’s a snippet of how the Lord used her to encourage me.
I called her to wish her a happy birthday, as we are FaceTiming I noticed she’s out taking a walk and unbeknownst to her she ended up encouraging me.
Most of you that know me have heard how one of the items on my bucket list is to run a 5K. We caught up with the latest and after hanging up the phone, I realized that this challenge doesn’t have to be completed in the eyes of the public.
So I laid aside every weight that so easily beset me and hit the reset icon on my C25K app and off I went into the neighborhood.
Starting off with a brisk five-minute walk warm up, alternated with 60-seconds of jogging and 90-seconds of walking; wrapped up with a 5-minute cool down. Mission accomplished in 30 minutes and it feels so good!
As I sit here gulping down some water, I am aware of what is going on amongst us, but I remind myself that wisdom doesn’t equate to bondage…I pray God-give all of us creative ways to be encouraged.
Maybe it’s in the simple phone call to a family member or a friend.
HERES HER REPLY…BE BLESSED!
Sheri, our friendship has spanned over 23 years. Over that time, We’ve laughed, cried, and prayed together.
My fitness journey originated out of a place of profound hurt and pain yet little did I know that GOD would use it to heal me and encourage others like you my sister.
Thank you for sharing this snippet of our friendship and love for one another. I love you 💕
