I will admit that I have a love/hate relationship with running. And when I say that, I basically mean that I love stopping and hate starting. When I finish running, I know I have just done one of the hardest things I will do all day. I have a thing for challenges, so I have been running for several years. And right now you are thinking, “So what?”
The “so what” is: I just read this book for teens and was pleasantly surprised at the message. In a sentence, it’s about a runner (Jessica) who, against all odds, learns to run with a prosthetic after having her leg amputated. OKAY, so I’m not very good at book reviews cause I just made that sound totally lame.
Lastly, I want to share with you another quote from this book.
“It’s disturbing how fast weeds take root in my garden of worthiness.
They’re so hard to pull.
And grow back so easily.”
Stop and think about how profound that is. Even though God tell us we are His precious children, we let others strip away our self-worth. We let what they think define who we are, instead of letting God define us. We need to stop that cycle now.
