New beginnings

You’re never too old, or too out of shape, physically, mentally, or spiritually to have new beginnings. I just came in from a 20 mile bike ride and rode one of my fastest paces ever, and that follows a 7 mile run I did yesterday.

What’s so special about that? Because a year ago, running and riding had never even entered my mind. It had been 20 years since I had run, and 30 years since I had ridden. I had the classic middle-aged office body (NOT pretty) but was trying to get some weight off.

Now, I’m 40 pounds lighter, run 3-4 times a week, and ride 2-3 times a week, weather permitting.  I feel better than ever.

God has placed in each one of us, more potential than we can dream of. What has he gifted you to do? Do you even know? Would it be an act of gratitude to Him to find out?
