I'm eating a dove chocolate bar as I sit down and write this post...just being honest! I feel the need to explain myself to you.
I am not a runner.
When I run I feel like I'm going to die.
I would never volunteer to run anywhere.
The furthest I've run is when I have a friend beside me distracting me from my own hyperventilating sounds.
I walk outside (safe) and run on a treadmill (because only "real" runners run outside)
Even then, I've fallen off the treadmill...twice. It's like the treadmill knows it's me and doesn't want to be embarrassed. :)
So, I tell people I'm going to run 1 mile a day for 8 weeks and they say, "Great!" when inside I'm saying, "I hope I make it past the first day!"
And then I think about Human Trafficking...and I stop complaining about how much this is going to hurt.
I care about the strangers out there who are being forced into the slave trade. Did you know that the average age is 13? Or that some are being sold by family members? I care those people and I want to "do" something. If it's possible to end Human Trafficking I want to be a part of that movement. Don't you?
Tread on Trafficking is going to cost me. I'm okay with that. (But, I wouldn't mind company for my runs though!)
I am studying the book of James in the bible and I'm being challenge to live out what I say I believe. Faith means action.
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. "
