All that being said, my time in the gym tonight was really good. I won't say great, but it was good. I jogged/walked 2.18 miles. I thought I was going to lose my dinner at one point, but that's to be expected when you haven't been running for the past 3 weeks. It was really cool, because in the heat of the hardest part of my jog, the song "I Will Rise" by Chris Tomlin came on, which was such an encouragement.
I will rise when He calls my name. No more sorrow. No more pain.
I will rise on eagles wings. Before my God, fall on my knees. And rise...
And I hear the voice of many angels sing, 'Worthy is the Lamb'.
And I hear the cry of every longing heart, 'Worth is the Lamb'.
Then after that, Mighty to Save came on, which was empowering. That was the song that Jenny's family adopted during her time in the hospital, and I can't hear it (or sing it at church) without thinking about her. I feel like God's reminding me to keep going. To never give up. To remember that He's fighting for me every day. I'm resting in God's faithfulness tonight.
