Yesterday I wrote a post entitled, Between Good and Good.
In it, I wrote:
Another example is triathlon. It is a great testimony and a great ministry. A lot of people encourage me to keep doing it. Great for health. It is fun. It brings hope to others.
These are all good things. At the same time, when God calls and says it is time to move on, I obey.
Last night, I receive this email from a friend:
How's your training going so far? I have been caught up with some church stuff, and didn't get to start training until lately! :P
I know you are probably doing a lot already for your own, but I'm just wondering... by any slight chance, would you ever be interested in doing a Sprint distance Triathlon??
To which I reply:
Ho ho ho..i am doing well....to be honest i haven't train for the past few weeks..
Been spending a lot of praying and seeking the Lord for guidance....as such, I have stopped doing any training and not doing any triathlon this season (perhaps forever). My last race is next Sun for the sauga half marathon...it will be painful b/c I haven't run for a long time and i am quite out of shape.
Oh well :P.
What this means is that I apologize as you have to find another person to race with.
Feels like the Lord is moving me to a diff ministry...so need to surrender everything and seek His Guidance..
Focus and seek.
This is my friend's response:
No need to apologize! May God's love and peace be with you as you continue to seek His guidance :)
