Seeking a spiritual retreat, I booked a Caribbean cruise, hoping to find God in the vastness and majesty of the ocean and on the beautiful beaches in the Bahamas. Tuesday was our day at sea, so I took advantage of the track on deck to get my run in.
It was a run unlike any other. The track was a tenth of a mile, and I ran 10 laps at an easy pace. But the movement of the ship turned my easy effort into a 10-minute 5K!
As I saw the 3:10 pace on my Garmin, I reflected on this: when we rely on God’s power and let Him carry us, we can accomplish far greater things than we are capable of in our own strength–even the impossible.
