Last week, I wrote about my marathon and the three mantras that got me through 26.2 miles. I told my readers that my sweet mother-in-law had called my husband because God had told her specifically to be praying Habakkuk 3: 17-20 for me as I pounded pavement. She wanted me to be encouraged by these words.
Sounds awesome, right? Who wouldn’t want a mother-in-law that prays for her daughter-in-law, who calls specifically to offer words of encouragement? You’d think that I would have taken these words immediately and recited them over an over again in my mind, elated that God cared about my race and that He was giving me words to get me through it.
