I met Shawn McDonald

Here I Am by Shawn McDonald
I lay myself at your feet asking you.. wont you meet me -
Can not do it on my own -
Can not do it all alone-
Here I am Lord tonight with my arms opened wide -
Wont you come inside.

I love this song. It's one of those songs that helps me get into "the zone". My zone is where/when I feel like I have direct communication with the Lord. When my prayers cease to feel as if they're bouncing off the walls or when my mind finally rests and settles into concentration - the zone.

I worked out alone on Saturday. I had to push myself to stay on the treadmill. I was striving for 45 minutes and somewhere about 19 minutes I started to have a minor freak out. Around 23 minutes I thought - If I can only get to 30 minutes I'll be fine. Before I knew it I was at 35 minutes...it was then that I realized I had it in the bag. I pushed myself for 5 more minutes then cooled down for the other 5. Walking out of the gym on Saturday was priceless. I did it! Proud?! You best bet your buns I was proud. Praise the Lord for his faithfulness! Truly, I learned that when I'm weak He is strong.
