Pausing To Encourage

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 no 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 💕
