Over the years I have kept every pair of running shoes that I have ever had. I spray paint them red, write notes on/in them, say a prayer, and throw them on telephone wires near places significant to my life.
It has become my way of letting go of a certain season in my life, and embracing a new one. On the bottom of every pair I write “ALWAYS MORE.” These words represent the way I strive to live, based on my motives for living that way. These words are always ringing in my ears, or written on my hand as my life reminder. They remind me that this present world and everything in it passing away, yet there is “ALWAYS MORE” to look forward to in the New Heavens (Matthew 6:19-21).
When I run, these words remind me that I ALWAYS have MORE strength, power, and endurance in Christ (Isaiah 40:31). When I am tired or burnt out, these words remind me that I ALWAYS have MORE to draw from in Christ (Ephesians 3:20).
AUDREY MIRABELLA ROLOFF
Hi friendlies! My name is Audrey Mirabella Roloff. I’m 24 and I live in Bend, Oregon.
This lifestyle blog is a hodgepodge of me – Auj Poj. Here you’ll find bits of family, faith, and fashion, mixed with stories of adventure, fitness tips, marriage/relationship recommendations, candid girl talk, home videos, and insight on the #journeyofjerandauj.
Since about age 5 my family and friends have called me “Auj.” Somewhere along the way the “Auj” tacked on a “Poj,” and Auj Poj seemed to perfectly fit my hodgepodge lifestyle.
I am a combination of raspy loudness, frizzy redness, running craziness, redeemed brokenness, persevering faithfulness, and striving to reflect more of Christlikeness. I want to bear His image in all my ways, ALWAYS MORE and MORE.
