Hello everyone!!! Welcome to week 8. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’› How was your walking/running for week 7 of the Spring100? Have you been enjoying great weather?? Most of mine was done on a treadmill or in the airport terminal… but that’s another blog post! πŸ˜‰βœˆοΈ One of our fellow Spring100ers competed in her very first 5K this week and I couldn’t have been more overjoyed to hear this. Everyone give Leah a big hand! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽ‰ Way to go LEAH!! πŸ‘πŸ˜„Β  As we move forward, summer plans may threaten to hinder us from meeting our walking/running goals BUT don’t lose heart. Keep on persevering! You can do it!! Just like in our physical exercise, we are going to find certain seasons in our spiritual walk/run that are going to be a bit more challenging to run with endurance. Very often it will feel as if we are running up hill as we face trying situations and spiritual discouragement. Sometimes these uphill runs will seem impossible or unending BUT we can run with endurance as we set our eyes on Jesus Christ! He himself has run the race before us[Heb 6:20]. He has victoriously finished and enabled us to do the same through HIS strength[Phil 2:13]! So, as you face those uphill runs spiritually, set your eyes on our Lord and Savior “who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Our faithful God has promised that as we look to Him and trust HIM, we shall NEVER be put to shame[Rom 10:11]. He remains faithful in every season as we spiritually run! Uphill and down, He is always beside us, guiding us every step of the way[Is 41:13]. Set your face like a flint[Is 50:7] and run in the strength of the Lord! I will be praying for you all during week 8.Β πŸ’–

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Congrats, Leah! πŸ‘πŸ»
    And so fun to see everyone’s photos — I really enjoy them! πŸ’–
    1. I think my biggest challenge recently was some unfriendly neighbor dogs… but thankfully they don’t seem to bother us as much anymore (maybe they’re getting used to us?).
    2. A verse that I’ve pondered a lot while walking has been “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength…” — thinking how “waiting” on Him means spending lots of time. It’s not just a quick 5-minute “flare prayer”: it’s a way of life, full of time spent seeking Him…

    1. Amen to #2!! Thank you for sharing that encouraging thought. You really blessed me through it! πŸ’–βœ¨

      β€œLead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.” Ps‬ ‭25:5‬ ‭

  2. Way to go, Leah on your first 5k! :) :O

    One of the biggest challenges that I have in accomplishing my miles is finding time where Joseph (and I) are available. I usually do them with Joseph so that I can make sure that he does a full 1.1 mile. ;)

    1. Way to go on helping Joseph, Faith!! That’s really an encouraging act of kindness. May the Lord bless you for your efforts!! πŸ’›

      The generous soul shall be made rich: and he that waters shall be watered also himself.-Prov 11:25

  3. Love the pictures! :)

    1. My biggest challenge is… since my Mom and I go on walks together, and my Dad is at work all day and I have 4 little siblings at home, we are limited to walking only in the early mornings, evenings, and weekends– IF the weather is favorable! But recently it has been nice out and it has been light out later, which is helpful. :)

    2. I have been studying Philippians lately, and one of my favorite verses is Philippians 3:13-14:

    “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do: forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forward toward those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

    May that be our desire this week– press toward the mark, everyone, and enjoy Week 8!!! :)

    1. Way to go Natalie!! I know that can be a challenge working around family scheduled. Keep up the beautiful work!! πŸ’“
      Amen! Let’s press forward for that prize. β˜ΊοΈπŸ’›

      One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.-Ps 27:4

  4. Wow, Bethany, that owl is incredible!!! With Spring being so vibrant these past few weeks Revelation 21:5 has been rolling through my mind: “Behold, I make all things new.” Travel has been a (pleasant) wrench in my excercise routine, but thankfully I’ve still been able to hit my goals. Great to see everyone again this week… I’ll be sad when this challenge is over! πŸƒ1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣

    1. Isn’t the owl pic fun?!! Love that verse!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’›

      The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.-Is 40:8

  5. My biggest challenge has been finding the time to walk. Recently while I was walking I was thinking of some people I wanted to encourage spiritually and praying about it. I realized that if I want to help others spiritually, I need to be more faithful spending time with the Lord so that I can receive something from Him to share with them.

    I’m still enjoying the challenge, Rachel! You do a great job coming up with a variety of questions for us to answer! :)

    1. Wow! Your answer is such a great reminder, Bethany.πŸ’– Thank you for that! I will admit, I have a few helpers when it comes to choosing the questions! ;)
      “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 3:18

  6. Yay!! Week seven βœ…!😁 What a fun, exciting Spring100 week…❀️ 1.) The most challenging thing this last week was carrying about fifty pounds of luggage while walking my mile during layovers!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜œ 2.) The verse that came to mind during today’s walk was Psalm 145:8-9, “The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
    The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”! 😁 Great job on your 5K Leah!!πŸŽ‰ Bethany, that owl is so neat! πŸ¦‰ Joel, your doing an excellent job staying on track while on business trips!!πŸ‘πŸ»
    Thank you Rachel for such an encouraging post! πŸ™πŸΌβ€οΈ

  7. Great job everyone!!
    I love that beautiful view, Natalie!
    What an adorable niece, Kandace!!
    That airport photo is the cutest, ladies. Love it. Great job getting your miles in while traveling.
    Great job, Austin on the track!
    Way to go Sarah! Btw, I always love how you style your hair.
    I love all your creative photos, Leake siblings!
    What a lovely photo, Bethany. And darling critter.
    Way to go, Joel!
    Elisha, your pup is so cute.

    A few verses that encouraged me today were:

    I have taught you the way of wisdom;
    I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
    When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
    and if you run, you will not stumble.
    Proverbs 4:11-12

    Thanks for the encouragement this week, Rachel.
    I agree with Grace. I will be sad when the Spring 100 is over!

    I did some training this week with my dog, so hopefully I can get her motivated again to exercise with me! :)

    Blessings all!

    1. Way to go on working with your dog. :D They can be extremely stubborn at times, can’t they?!! ;) I really love those verses in Prov 4. He leads us ever step of the way! <3 So thankful you have joined this challenge!
