"Therefore since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us."
What are the encumbrances in your life and the sins that so easily entangle you from running strong with endurance the race set before all of us? Ask the Holy Spirit’s help in revealing the answers. Then we need to be enabled by Him to lay it aside and to cast it off. Let this be a day of self examination and allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal what lies deep inside all of us. Allow your sins to be revealed so you can confess, be forgiven, and be cleansed from all unrighteousness as only He can do. Let us proclaim, "W have fought the goo fight, we have finished the course, we have kept the faith."
In His love.
Yes, I am sucking air, and my quads are pulsating, but I finished strong running my last several yard up, up, up, to the top of Grandfather Mountain to finish the Bear, a challenging 5 mile run. Perseverance and endurance were my friends 🙂
