Running Toward the Challenge

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

1 Samuel 17:48
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.

Hello guys and gals,
I did finally did it. I started exercising today. I did the 12 minute Low Impact Cardio Workout and the 10 minute Bootcamp Cardio Workout. Both are found in the Video section here on It actually felt good to get my body moving. I do however need more room to do these exercises. I had fun even though my son Asher stayed under my feet, lol.

My day has not been to exciting today. I cooked dinner for my wife and kids. I actually made a new recipe with chicken and elbow macaroni. My creative juices got sparked this morning when I looked at a recipe on and I didn't have all the necessary ingredients. Been running short on cash this week so I couldn't go buy them either, lol. So I thought to myself why not substitute the ground beef with chicken breast. That was the major change. I didn't use bell pepper like it called for and I cooked it all wrong from the way the recipe said and I added Thyme. But all in all it was pretty good. Next time I think I will use Mozzarella cheese instead of the fiesta blend. Here is the link to my new recipe if anyone is interested:

Now on to my scripture for the day. I have been thinking about this scripture for quiet some time now. This scripture comes from the story of David and Goliath. It is amazing to me that when Goliath stepped on the battle field and approached David that, David didn't wait, he ran to meet his challenge. He knew that God was with him, there must have been no doubt. How could he have had been so confident if he didn't know.

If we could only be as confident as David. When ever we are challenged why do we hide? Why do we not stand up to the challenge and run at it? If God is with us who can be against us? That has to be what David was thinking. Its time to run toward our Goliath and claim our victory that God has already given us. Your Goliath may be soft drinks, snacking, binge eating, exercising, etc. Whatever your Goliath is, be like David and run toward it and conquer it in the name of God.

My Father in heaven, I ask that you forgive me of my sins. I am a sinner and I pray you show me the areas in which you want me to improve on. Lord thank you for this word you have spoken to my heart and I pray that you let me know you are beside me. Lord please give me the confidence needed to run at my Goliath and conquer it in your name. In Jesus's precious name, Amen!

    Awesome job being creative for your dinner. Being creative with food is one thing that I am quite good at. :) I also pray for boldness on a daily basis, in all aspects of my life. That is something that most of us are lacking.
