Recently I have have been feeling, very literally, like I am going to break. Spiritually, emotionally, and even physically. I started jogging. Heaven knows why…but a tip that someone gave me was, “When you reach your breaking point, push a little farther. That’s how you build up your endurance.”
So yesterday, I was talking to Jesse about jogging. We decided to jog “together” for accountability, but to jog at our own pace. “We should run three miles a day, and then that means we’ll run 100 miles in a month.”
“I can’t even run a mile straight yet,” I told her.
“That’s okay. How much do you think you can do?”
“Maybe like, half a mile right now, but I don’t know because of this altitude.”
“Okay, well start with half a mile and work up. You’ll be running a mile before you know it. The important thing is that you push to your own limit each time.”
“That’s the same thing Justin told me. He said that when you reach breaking point, you need to push a little farther, and you’ll start to build endurance.”
“Yeah,” she said, “I remember when I used to run a lot, there was always that one point when you literally feel like you’re breaking. Your legs can’t go an inch further, your mind is weary, you can’t breathe, but if you just push past it, everything’s okay again.”
“Wow, Jesse. I just realized what I need to do for my spiritual walk. I need to push PAST my breaking point. If I always stop there, then that’s my limit. But if I start pushing past it, I’ll build endurance for my spiritual walk. Right now, I’m just apathetic, but I believe I can push past the apathy too, and I’m sure that I’ll come to realize that suddenly, everything will be okay again.”
Because when you go for a jog, the sidewalk ends, the sprinklers turn on, your watterbottle and inhaler get thrown away, you trash dig for them and keep on jogging anyway. (at Norwalk Seventh-Day Adventist Church)
México by daytime, GLOWing the border by night time. Tito joined us, being well…Tito. Picked up Carsten’s car in Norwalk, and the camry[s] caravanned to Debbie’s. Had some adventures with Chelsie, but mostly just been marinating w/ the crew. High Sabbath. Tomorrow we head to Norwalk. Goodbye, Spring Break 2013. We had a good run. (at Living Stones Church)
