The Conversion of Saul who becomes Paul.

“But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Saul was an enemy of the Church and Jesus Christ. He was working to arrest believers. The Jewish authorities were responsible for this severe persecution. Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. And falling to the ground he heard a voice […]

the Author of life

“The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭3:13-15‬ ‭ESV‬‬

What do you think about the Christ?

Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying, “‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet?” If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?” 46And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any […]

harsh reality

Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet. – Doris Brown Heritage

the law or faith

2Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? 3Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected bya the flesh?

Running is my private time, my therapy, my religion. Gail W. Kislevitz A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they’re capable of understanding.

Haruki Murakami Running isn’t a sport for pretty boys…It’s about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut.

immeasurable gain

However, older runners can continue to perform extraordinary athletic feats. Canadian athlete Ed Whitlock ran a marathon in 2:54:48 at the age of 73. Carlos Lopes set the world marathon record at the age of 38. Hal Higdon, marathon runner and writer, at the age of 52 ran a 10km in 31:08 and a marathon in 2:29:27. “Age brings problems; it also brings solutions. For every disadvantage there is an advantage.

Gospel of Mark Verses from

“The time has come,” [Jesus] said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”(Mark 1:15 NIV) When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5) He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach (Mark 3:14) He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground.” (Mark 4:26) For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!” (Mark 5:8) Isn’t this the carpenter? […]

Slow Carb Diet by Tim Ferris

Fat Loss via Better Science and Simplicity It is possible to lose 20 lbs. of bodyfat in 30 days by optimizing any of three factors: exercise, diet, or drug/supplement regimen. I’ve seen the elite implementation of all three in working with professional athletes. In this post, we’ll explore what I refer to as the “slow-carb diet”. In the last six weeks, I have cut from about 180 lbs. to 165 lbs., while adding about 10 lbs. of muscle, which means I’ve lost about 25 lbs. of fat. This is the only diet besides the rather extreme Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD) […]


“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

We run

We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves…The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, “You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.” The human spirit is indomitable. – Sir Roger Bannister, first runner to break the 4-minute mile


Beyond the very extreme of fatigue and distress, we may find amounts of ease and power we never dreamed ourselves to own; sources of strength never taxed at all because we never push through the obstruction. – William James
