My Soul Can Rest, My Righteousness is Found in You
My countdown to the 35-mile Georgia Jewel continues. Each day up to race day I'm reflecting on the song that has given me strength through this journey: Confident, by Steffany Gretzinger. Yesterday, I focused on the lyric - I'm confident your faithfulness will see me through. Today, I'll turn to the next lyric in the song:
My soul can rest, my righteousness is found in you
When I committed to run the Georgia Jewel, and then started talking to experienced trail runners, a common theme emerged: there's a unique peace to be found on the trails.

I am honored to run this race for Giving Words and my friend Kate Fletcher. I got to know Kate when I interviewed her on my TwoTim47 podcast after she ran 100 miles to raise scholarship money for her Louisa County High students. I was taken by her heart and spirit for using running to help others. You can listen to my conversation with Kate here: High School Teacher Kate Fletcher Runs 100 Miles For Student Scholarships.
In the interview, I had no idea Kate had needs of her own. Her humble spirit won't give things like that away. But Kate lives in a house with some significant structural challenges. So I'm partnering with my friend Eddie Brown and Giving Words to help her. I'm hoping to find 100 people to donate $35 - one dollar for each mile of that Georgia Jewel run.
