The book of Hebrews spurs me on!
12:1-2 "Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus."
I want to camp on 12:1-2. Many know that I used to be an avid runner--in all honesty it was more like an obsession (sinful addiction). Therefore, I can relate to this verse. As I serve the Lord by serving my children and husband, I can often times become weary. But it is usually because I am not keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. The Lord reminded me that for some peope a 5K race takes endurance, to others it is all they can do to complete a 10K race and yet, for some a marathon is a feat to endure. Therefore, who am I to compare my race to anothers. It is the Lord who calls us to the race, be it a 5K or a marathon. As I watch the Lord unfold His plan for me, as a mother of six little ones and the wife of a pastor, I see how once being a half marathon competitor has prepared me for the race that is set before me.
Press on dear sisters.
