So Zac and I have had some great runs the last couple of days. Today, we made the fun, and hilly trek from Santa Maria over to Pismo Beach. We had our first run along today, as our amazing friend and host for the last couple days Daniel joined us for the run and got a little peek into our daily routine as we ran along Pacific Coast Highway. Zac and I have once again upped the pace and the mileage that we run each day as we are becoming stronger and more used to the miles. As we stood and stretched in quiet solace at Pismo, the early afternoon lull was abruptly shattered by the shrill combination of an overused horn blasting and girls screaming at the top of their lungs. From one adventure to another, we were quickly wisked away to the Cal Poly SLO. We are being blessed in so many ways, from one pool of hospitality to another, Zac and I are getting opportunity after opportunity to share the love of our Lord as we are having grace raining on us every day!
Zac and I get asked a lot , “What is the most awe inspiring thing you have seen or encountered?” I’ll be completely honest with you guys, that is truly a hard thing to say. Zac and I don’t understand how we are here. We don’t understand how we got thing planned. We don’t understand why we were even able to toe the border at Mexico. We don’t understand why so many people came to see us off from our bon voyage party, and we especially don’t understand how we could have come this far. Zac and I can say without doubt or reprieve, God has brought us here. He always endures, and He always perseveres. When I get letters of encouragement, and emails, and facebook messages of people telling me how they have been encouraged, I finally realized why I feel the way I feel when they say these things. I feel as though people are thanking us for something we have not done. If would be if someone just came up to you on the street and said, “The way you are living your life right now encourages me to seek God more.” I am more fully understanding the calling God has called us to. We are simply vessels for His Glory! I feel as though I am just doing what I was asked to do. But God is using it to change people! Fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, make yourselves living sacrifices! John Wesley once said (and I am sorry I know I am harshly paraphrasing),”Give me 100 men who desire nothing but God and hate nothing but sin, and I will show you a force that will shake the gates of hell and bring the Kingdom of God to earth!” We love you guys, keep praying, God Bless!
