Keep Going, Keep Going!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1

I was watching the live coverage of the 120th Boston Marathon live streaming this past Monday  and noticed one thing close to the finish line. Most participants raised their hands as they crossed over the finish line after running 26.2 miles. What a victory. A couple of the participants bent down and patted the finish line. Many probably hit the wall, as marathon runners call it, and wanted to just quit and walk the rest of the way but most probably kept on going.

How many of you reading this feel like quitting on life sometimes? You are overwhelmed with the 'hand dealt to you' as some call it and just wish Jesus would beam you up. Life does present challenges. It is Satan who wants to defeat and discourage you, not the Lord.
 Whatever is going on in your life no matter how hard, sad, tough, or scary cry out to God.

Don't run away from Him and get angry. I have known people who have gotten mad at God and consequently stopped praying or wanting to do things of the Lord. All along God has not left them. He is waiting. Keep running that race because there is joy in the morning. Just believe!

 PRAYER: I am thankful for each and every day you have given me. Forgive me when I have wimped out and started listening to lies of the enemy rather than truth and comfort from you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
