Following Jesus back into health

Early this year, I felt the Lord ask me to "follow" him back into ultra marathons. In this process of following I wanted to give a short update on the results of following Jesus. Late winter and spring of this year, I was able to complete three 50k's. Last week I was able to complete a 15 mile long run, after recovering from an injury in the spring. This morning I was able to complete 50 pushups and 50 sit-ups after the back injury (multiple compression fractures of my vertebrae) from 2009. One's health is something the Lord can lead anyone into, if the Lord is welcome into one's health. Next week mark's the end of the chemotherapy season of my life having finished 18 weeks of R-CHOP in 2009 and two years of Rituxan.

Lord, we welcome you into our health and well being. We ask that you would lead us into better and better health. Thank you that you have provided all the health we will ever need. Help us follow your leadership.

In Jesus name, amen.
