Well, I have to be brief because the borrowed bed I am sleeping in is calling my name. It is 11:05pm on the night before my race.
I am tired. It has been an emotional and hard day. My Love and I have not been at peace with each other and it has taken it's toll on me.
However, I went to church tonight and had some face time with my Jesus. The Author of peace. Our dear friend John, sang with his beautiful wife and the band my MOST favorite worship song, John preached on counting our blessings, and my spirit was refreshed by the simple act of focusing on my God.
He told me earlier in the day when I felt so awful that it would all be as if it had never happened - He, of course, was right. He washed the burdens away and reminded me how much He is in charge of tomorrow and not me.
I trained exclusively with Christian music. I can't wait to see what "soundtrack" He plays for me as I swim, bike and run tomorrow. I have so many songs in my heart, it will be cool to see what rises to the surface in my head!
Since I am committed to doing my best, I am going to go to bed.
God is so Good, He is fully committed to fulfilling His promise to me of a successful finish to the race. I believe Him. I am ready.
I will let you know how it went.
