March Madness - Day 22


Even the invisible can be invincible!

All I remember hearing is "Do you see me?"

They were not my spoken words but it's a question I often ask in silence.

A question I ponder day after day.

When I do ask the question aloud, I usually ask, "Am I really that invisible?"

Dictionary.com defines 'invisible' as "unable to be seen; not visible to the eye." It goes further to clarify "treated as unable to be seen; ignored or not taken into consideration."

Yes, that's the definition that best describes the adjective I often use to describe myself. Invisible.

Of course, I don't use that adjective in a job interview when asked, "Tell us about yourself."
Yet, when I'm being really honest with myself, that's the best adjective to use.

It's because others don't see me.

Nope. They don't really see me.

Perhaps it's my stature. Perhaps it's my aura. Perhaps it's my confidence. (Speaking of which, click here to find out where your confidence lies). Perhaps it's the mask.

None of that really matters though. You know why? Because God sees me. Jeremiah 1:5 tells me, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."

There may be times when you, like me, feel alone. Times when we feel overlooked. Times when we feel left out. Times when we feel abandoned.

Regardless of how we FEEL in the moment, the TRUTH is:

  • We are NEVER alone. God is always with us. 
  • We are NOT overlooked. God is preparing a place for us.
  • We are NOT left out. God has set up aside for something greater.
  • We are NOT abandoned. God is carrying us even when we don't feel Him. 

If you feel or have ever felt invisible, email me at mylifeonthebeam@gmail.com so that we can stand together and be invincible.

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that we are at the top of 2019. That means we made it to another year. One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
