Let Us Run Our Race

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,

let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,

and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith . . . .”

Hebrews 12 1-2a

We are all given a race to run, the course of our life is set out by God, according to His will.

The weight of our circumstances and our sin will pull us off course if we let them take our focus off Jesus – our prize at the end of this life.

When Peter asked Jesus about John’s future, Jesus told him not to worry about John. Peter was to follow Jesus. (John 21:22)

God has given us all we need to endure ’til the end.

Never mind what others are doing.

Never mind the course they are on.

Never mind the outside forces that beckon us to alter our course.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?

So run, that ye may obtain.”

1 Corinthians 9:24

    • Hi Pam. Thank you for visiting. I am not sure how often I will be here. So much going on with the baby and everything else, I find I am too tired at the end of the day to think about putting words to paper; but every once in a while a thought comes to me that must be put out there. God bless.
