Never Stopped Believing

The picture below might just look like a bunch of running shoes to most people, but the story goes much deeper. These are a collection of my miracle shoes.

In 2009, my health declined to such a level, that some doctors only gave me 24 hours to live. At that time I was told I would never run again. But as I was fighting for my life, I always believed God would allow me to run again. That believe ran so deep, I used to buy a new pair of running shoes every year. This photo is just a few of them.

On December 1, 2019, after ten years of believing God would allow me to run again, I ran one mile. Then I completed my first 5k in ten years. Then a few weeks ago, I completed my first half-marathon. God is so good.

So I want to encourage you to continue believing in your dream, even when people tell you it’s impossible. Nothing is impossible with God. Won’t He Do It! ~OC

The Miracle Journey Continues

The miracles continue in my life. I continue to be blown away by everything God has done and is doing in my life.

This past Saturday morning, God woke me up at 4am and shared he wanted to do something special in my life. No, I did not hear the audible voice of God, but he did speak to my heart. I was ready for whatever special thing he wanted to do in my life. At least I thought I was ready.

I was already planning on running Saturday morning. I thought I would knock out 5 miles. God had other plans for me that morning. As I approached 5 miles, I felt God encouraging me to keep going. Great I will get 6 miles in today I thought. But God had bigger plans than 6 miles. I just kept running until I had reached 13.1 miles. A half-marathon! Are you kidding me? I had not run that distance in 11 years. I have only been able to run again since December 1, 2019. What a beautiful gift from God. I was filled with so many emotions at that moment. God is so good.

I do not know what storm you are facing at this time. You might be in the biggest fight of your life. I want to encourage you to keep praying. To keep believing your miracle is one prayer away. I had a lot of people praying for me for almost 18 years, before I received my miracle. Never give up! ~OC
