Run by faith πŸ•Š

For we walk by faith, not by sight

2Co 5:7

Fide curre is latin for “You Run By Faith” and aptly describes the basis of my adventures over the past decade. If you’ve found this page, it likely means you share a very similar foundation. I’m not sure where I’m going with this site, but it explores my adventures from a different vantage point than konfedence/thehoborunner. For now all thats here is essentially a spoken 15 min summary of my spiritual journey, and that time I got put on the spot to share my testimony at a truck stop in Joplin.

Humans are defensive creatures. If you tell most of us we are wrong, we harden our hearts and no amount of evidence can convince us otherwise. For those who haven’t (yet) found their faith, hitting them over the head with a Bible can be counterproductive. I know it was for me when I was young. I believe instead in planting a seed, and trusting that others will cross their paths to water that seed. Or perhaps the seed was already there, and I’m just tending the garden? I’ve seen parallels of all this in many of my own adventures. Regardless, on His time (Kairos), all will blossom.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

2Pe 3:8

Though it’s merely a different lens on the same journey, what you’ll discover here will possibly shed new light on everything I’ve previously shared via running. When you know the foundation – everything makes so much more sense! Even as my life has gotten continually upended, I’ve had no doubt: all is well. Though many times things have looked dismal, I’ve known deep within that this too would pass… and that if I’d relinquish my desire for control I’d find myself on a far better path than I could ever imagine.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isa 40:31

Truly “run and not grow weary” describes my racing, pacing and running in recent years. The life that I’ve known since that hit and run (which I refer to as my Jonah moment) is nothing like what I’d have envisioned for myself before I ‘woke up’ at the Boston Marathon finish line. I went from following the path of Jobs, to like Job, losing pretty much everything – and seeing it returning in multiples. Does that mean 10 kids on the way?!

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Rom 12:2

Through that simple faith, I’ve broken from the grind of society. I’ve found myself ‘retired’ and with everything I need to not only care for myself, but also for those I love. Driven by that trust, my brain continues to rewire and my body strengthen. I don’t know the details of what comes next, but I’ve no doubt it is beyond my wildest dreams. Who’s with me? I know He is.
