At the dawn of each new year, I set aside time to reflect. I love being reminded of God’s faithfulness and how I grew over the course of the year. 2015 was a stretching year to say the least, one where I questioned the commitment I made to running and the future it holds in my life. Honestly, I am still not sure what it looks like, but I want this journal entry to be what I cling to when I remember 2015. It was worth it all, even when met with heartbreak.
April 4, 2015:
“No matter how this season goes, it was worth committing to the goal and going along for the journey. The relationships, experiences, lessons, and growth that comes from it outweighs everything, no matter what the outcome. I relinquish thinking that I have to reach my goal and have a perfect season in order for it to be worthwhile. I reject the lie that says the results validate the commitment. Therein lies the power of commitment-you commit to something without knowing how it will turn out, but trusting and believing for the best. It is so worth it!”
