I have been very tired after all the exercise (nearly 25k steps again yesterday including just short of a half marathon training run). Battered on Southend Pier by the wind though it didn’t rain. And got a blister under my big toe (thank goodness for compeed plasters!) Then there is normal life to cope with!
Biblelens put the verse from James onto a smiling face. But sadly many people end their lives at this beautiful spot. It all gets too much and ending it all seems like the best answer…
Continuing walking and running, including in the race of life, when you want to give up, is hard. Many times it’s a case of just keeping putting one foot in front of each other. But to get there you need to. Sometimes it’s right to rest or let someone come alongside.
Again I am reminded of my persecuted family where trials and challenges are a daily occurrence. They have it so much worse-for examples, see http://www.opendoorsuk.org They keep on walking through trials but us coming alongside makes a huge difference.
Thanks for your support and interest.
