It amazes me when I take a step back and think about the little things I take for granted. This morning while on my run, I thought about the bike path that I use for training 3 times a week. When I made the decision to move to Ohio and to intern for the summer, I did not know what to expect, all I knew is I knew it was something I needed to do. One of the things I hadn’t thought about was what kind of neighborhood I would be living in. You see I signed up for the Chicago Marathon to help raise money for Phil’s Friends an organization that brings hope to those fighting cancer. This summer it was going to be vital that I follow my marathon training program in order to run in October. I didn’t think about this when I made the decision to move. I didn’t look up to see what kind of places I would have to run through, what the landscape would be like, or anything like that. Thats why as I ran on the 14.2 mile long bike path that literally runs through the backyard of my apartment complex, I couldn’t help but be in awe of how God works in our lives. He provides for us when we don’t even realize it. How crazy is it that while figuring out where to live, how I was going to support myself financially, and so on and so forth. He took care of something I hadn’t even thought about! I feel the bike path and where I decided to live is absolutely a God thing. I was having a hard time deciding between two different locations and just had a feeling the apartment I chose was the right one. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that sometimes we get so focused on the “big” things, we don’t see how God is working in every aspect of our lives. Working in every aspect so much that we don’t always allow ourselves to see it! He truly is great and wonderful Father!
