to run is to breathe

So I’ve been learning a lot recently about myself, relationships, and the like. People keep telling me to just breathe. More specifically they tell me to concentrate on my breathing so that I can focus on that which is life giving. Bill Bright used to say that you should breathe in the Lord and the goodness of His life-giving love and breathe out the polluting sin of life. So in an effort to really do this, I’ve pulled out my running shoes and began by simply putting one foot in front of the other and remembering to breathe. inhale, exhale. inhale, exhale.

I have a feeling that it’s going to take a lot of miles to get back to where I need to be, but I’m OK with it because as long as I keep moving forward . . . I’ll get there one day.
