Along Came A Pathway

Dear God,

With my life, I have chosen to follow the path you lay before me; wherever it may lead. In times when my path was jagged and I could barely decipher my next step, You gave me the clarity to trust in You and continue on. In times when my path seemed to come to a sudden stop, You had the patience and grace to wait for me to continue on. In my times of darkness, You led me to lighted stairways. When my path has been well lit, You have encouraged me to keep pressing forward.

No matter the lay of the land You've been there, time and time again, to guide my steps and make my way known. You've given me an abundance of resources, tools, and mentors to assist me at every turn. As I begin a new leg of my journey, I want to pause now to thank you with all my heart and soul for your many blessings: My family, my wife, my son, Vincent, my unborn child (Emille, born 7/2/11), thank you for the joy they bring to my life. Thank you for the path I've walked thus far: Through schooling, tough decisions and life lessons, mistakes and misfortune, through sacrifice and instability, and through victory and defeat...Thank You. Thank You for guiding me to CrossFit Springfield and to all those whom I am now blessed to work with, learn from, and lead.

In the days, weeks, months, and years that may come, I pray for Your continued mercy, grace, and favor to rest fully upon my life and upon the lives of all whom I hold so dear, that we may do the good works you have placed along our paths for us to do.

With Great Pride I Call You My God And Savior; It Is with Great Humility That I Call Myself Your child,

Jeremy Mhire


  1. Jeremy, I am touched by this, I have to tell you. I have had the worst of years and sometimes it's hard to remember to step back and thank God for all He has done amidst the trials. How He has always been there and always will be. I'm so happy to see that He has enriched your life so much. Thank you for reminding me to focus on the good that is God instead of the hardships. God bless you Jeremy.

  2. I'm in tears. I too am sensing a change in my life that I can't quite explain so this resonated with me. Thank you for sharing your heart. It has a positive impact on so many people.
