So much has happened between this post and the last one. This photo was taken on January 7, 2018. A day when the Lord took my brokenness and turned it into beauty.
This day was the day of my first hike of 2018 and Lord willing it won’t be my last. 🙂 Something the hike reminded me of is that my goal of being a fit hiker is worth all the difficulty.
Training is hard. Preparation is hard. Purification is hard. However, training, preparation, and purification are all necessary parts of life. In order to achieve my goal, I need to go through all those things. Maybe once, maybe twice, and maybe continually.
But if I keep the goal in mind the training, preparation, and purification will have a purpose.
