My Testimony

I've grown up in church, got baptized when I was 8, and have always had a close relationship with God. And ever since a young age, I've always been pretty happy and upbeat, following the rules and being the "good Christian girl". I fit that role well, and enjoyed it. But after some devastating news about a friend's health, my joy and faith went down the drain. I continued going through the motions, but I was drowning in depression and anxiety. I wasn't myself anymore. But even through it all, God was constant. In fact, by what seemed like a couple of weird coincidences, my class schedule aligned with someone who became my mentor. She had gone through a similar experience as I had, and God used her to remind me of the truth and taught me how to regain my joy. Ever since then, I believe God has strengthened me and shown me a new perspective on who He is. My faith has grown deeper and stronger than ever before, and I want to share that with the world! It hasn't been easy, and I'm still learning, but I'm so thankful for all God has done in my life.


When I was dreaming up blog names, "Run the Race" seemed like the perfect fit. On the surface, it displays my love for running (and sometimes I have to convince myself to do it by saying "just go run that race!"). But deeper still, it comes from Hebrews 12:1, which says, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us". This is my true mission; to run the race God has for me diligently and passionately. And not only do that by myself, but in community, because there is no "I" in Hebrews 12:1. We are meant to run this race together, with our eyes fixed on God.
