Lord, I'm lost. I am desperately looking for support from someone who knows what it is like to be disappointed by someone you love dearly. To be let down on just about every front. I don't know what to do, and I'm just so sad right now. I haven't felt this way in a long time, but I just cannot bring myself to happiness. I need you to help guide me there. I've been stagnent and missing in my faith and my walk. The guilt keeps piling on. I need help to clear this fog. I need direction and love. I can't see the overall plan you have for me, Lord, and it frightens me. I've had too...
I cannot own your fears.

I want so badly to have your support and loving approval during this time, BUT.
I'm not going to own your fears and absorb your negativity at only a chance of getting it.

Running: Week 4 C25k Musings
I'm now in week four of the Couch to 5k Challenge. I'm also participating in a 1/2 Marathon Class, of which, I'll be knocking out my first half in October with the Marine Corps Half Marathon and 5k. I ran the 5k back in 2007, and have been looking forward to the half marathon since then.
Some musings about some of my latest runs:
"The moon is in a perfect crescent in a darker-than-dusk sky. I wouldn't notice this if I were inside, or doing anything else, really, but running."
"When it rains/is raining, the white noise from the cars going by is much louder. Conversely, when you're on...
