Running.  Breathing.  Praising.  Sobbing.  Laughing.  Rejoicing.  Thanking.  
Jesus gave me this life so I'm going to use this life for Him.  Every breath I take is from Him, so every breath I take should be for Him.  Every step I take is a gift from Him, so I'm going to use every step I take for Him.  
I'm going to shout praises to Him.  Give Him thanks.  Rejoice.
